Honors Program


Vista High School offers a comprehensive honors program in which highly motivated, academically talented, high achieving students develop their full potential by pursuing rigorous curricula in grades 9 – 12. The International Baccalaureate (IB) and Advanced Placement (AP ) programs are included

in our honors program. Honors classes in grades 9 and 10 are considered “Pre IB/AP,” while classes in grades 11 and 12 are labeled Honors, IB or AP (with the exception of AP European history in grade 10, which is considered an AP course because it culminates with an AP exam). The goal of the honors program is to develop the skills and work habits in grades 9 and 10 which will prepare students for success in IB and AP exams, which are administered in May of the 11th and 12th grade years. Most universities give college level credit for passing scores on the IB and AP exams, and the two programs are universally recognized for their high academic standards. As students prepare for college, they are advised to remain aware of Vista High School’s graduation requirements, college entrance requirements and the advanced credit policies of the colleges to which they are applying. The College and Career Center, Honors Coordinator and Counselors can assist students with this task. Note: If students are interested in joining CSF (California Scholastic Federation) and graduating in white, students should contact the CSF club advisor.

Programa de Honores


Vista High School ofrece un programa completo de honores mediante el cual los estudiantes muy motivados, académicamente talentosos, y de alto aprovechamiento desarrollan su potencial por medio de un curriculum riguroso del 9 al 12. Los programas del Bachillerato Internacional (BI) y Colocación Avanzada (AP ) son parte del programa de honores. Las clases de honores del 9 y 10 se consideran Pre- BI/AP. Las clases de los años 11 y 12 se llaman honores, BI o AP (la excepcion es Historia Europea AP porque culmina con el examen AP). La meta del programa de honores es desarrollar las destrezas y los hábitos de estudio en los años 9 y 10 para prepararlos para tener éxito en los examenes BI y AP, que se tomarán en los años 11 y 12. La mayoria de las universidades otorga crédito universitario a las calificaciones aprobatorias de los examenes BI y AP, reconocidos mundialmente por su excelencia academica. Al prepararse se recomienda que tengan en mente los requisitos de graduación, de ingreso a la Universidad, y las reglas de créditos avanzados de las universidades . El Centro de Orientacion, el coordinador de honores y los consejeros pueden asistirlos con esto. Nota: Los interesados en ingresar a CSF (Federacion Escolastica de California) y graduarse de blanco , necesitan contactar al asesor del club CSF.

International Baccalaureate


The Full IB Diploma, which is internationally recognized, is awarded to students who successfully complete course work and examinations in 6 academic areas: English, world language, history, science, math and arts (music, visual arts, drama or dance). Students follow a challenging course of study in these fields over a two year period (junior and senior year) and also complete a course in Theory of Knowledge (TOK), a Creativity, Action and Service (CAS) project and an extended essay (EE), for which they work with a staff advisor.


Advanced Placement


In the Advanced Placement program, which is administered by the College Board, students test in specific subject areas. Unlike the IB, students may test after only one year of study. Some AP classes may have prerequisites, so students should consult the Honors Coordinator and their Counselors for more information.


It is highly recommended that students intent on going to college fill in individualized 4-year academic plans in 9th grade and review them annually with their Counselors and the Honors Coordinator.
