Academic Levels of Course Offerings
Courses may require a sufficient number of student registrants in order to be offered during the year. If there is not sufficient interest in a particular course, it may not be provided during the upcoming year. Many of our classes have recommendations that are listed prior to the course description.
Courses are offered at the following levels at Franklin High School.
- International Baccalaureate (IB) Courses: The IB program serves not only the academically talented but also the highly motivated student. Students are required to be involved in intradisciplinary and interdisciplinary projects. Students must take IB level courses in all academic areas as opposed to only isolated courses in areas of strength.
- Advanced Placement (AP) Courses: designed to prepare a student to earn college credit through the successful completion of the AP Test in a particular subject area.
- Honors Courses: a challenging pace designed for students who have displayed a record of academic success. Honors courses include multiple assessments, extended reading and writing assignments and exceed learning expectations of standard level courses.
- College Preparatory Courses: all courses are considered college preparatory unless specifically labeled otherwise.
- Standard Level Courses: follow the content standards, learning expectations, and performance indicators approved by the State Board of Education and Williamson County Schools. Standard level courses are open to all students.
- Resource Courses: open only to students who have been approved and placed in the course through their Individualized Education Plan (IEP).
