     ACADEMICS-Advanced Placement, Honors, College and Unleveled options
     
    • Advanced Placement course levels-one hour of homework/preparation for each class meeting

    • Honors course level-45 minutes of homework/preparation for each class meeting

    • College preparatory course level-30 minutes of homework/preparation for each class meeting

    • Music Classes (ex. Concert Band, Wind & String Ensembles): Audition for instrumental and vocal groups. Homework time needed for auditions, individual practice time (4 hours per week), private music lessons (up to 1 hour weekly), and performances (4 to 6 times per school year). Depending on the year, some groups may travel to play in state or out-of-state events (ex. South Shore Band Exchange, Jordan Hall, Carnegie Hall, Disney)

      Example: A student with two AP and Three honors level classes with two lighter homework electives in either art, music, physical education would typically be looking at 3 1⁄2 hours of homework nightly for 4 or 5 nights. Your mileage will definitely vary, but these guidelines should be helpful.
