English 12 Honors:

Academy:

In Academy the students will do the same work as normal students but will be expected to produce better results and will have projects called "thematics" assigned to help them learn how to better speak in public and teach them how to properly format presentations and present them to people.

 Personally as an Academy student I love thematics, they help teach teamwork and how to act like a proper adult.  - Jacob Gracey
