    * Class may be counted on a high school transcript as either an Honors Level Algebra 2 course, or a high school level Precalculus course. This is the most rigorous course I teach and is specifically structured for students who plan on taking a college course in the next year or so. Students do not have to be "gifted" to succeed in this course; a student's work ethic has been the more significant factor of success if they have attained a basic Algebra 1 / Geometry base coming into the course.
