November 2017 -- Students of the Glendale Union High School District are encouraged to enroll in Advanced Placement and Honors courses during their high school career to challenge and prepare themselves for higher education. To set students up for success from the start, the district offers an annual Honors & Advanced Placement Night, open to the community and interested incoming families, about the curriculum offerings and dual enrollment options.

This year, the event was held November 16 at Moon Valley High School. More than 400 interested families attended to hear presentations made by currently enrolled GUHSD students and school principals. The evening also offered a question and answer session.

When students enroll in Honors and/or Advanced Placement courses, they are able to not only study a more rigorous, challenging curriculum but also earn college credits and save money on college tuition. Most four-year colleges in the United States, and colleges in more than 60 other countries, give students credit on the basis of AP exam scores. By entering college with AP credits, students will be able to move into upper level courses and/or pursue a double major or study abroad. At GUHSD, students can even earn an Advanced Placement International Diploma.

The Glendale Union High School District is pleased to have Honors and Advanced Placement options available to students. Last year, GUHSD students earned 7,763 credits through dual enrollment. To learn more about Honors and Advanced Placement options, please visit this link.
