The Tamalpais Union High School District offers honors and advanced placement classes for students at Drake, Redwood and Tamalpais high schools, and through independent study at Tamiscal.
ADVANCED PLACEMENT (AP) courses are designed to prepare students to take College Board-sponsored Advanced Placement (AP) exams. These national curricula are developed by both high school and college teachers under the auspices of the College Board. Most universities award college credit based on AP exam scores.
HONORS COURSES are developed locally by district teachers to meet the needs of talented students. An Honors class parallels the curriculum offered in the corresponding regular class but may cover additional topics or some topics in greater depth. Honors courses may be organized as separate classes, or as extra projects or seminars supplementing a regular course.
