"Honors classes go more in depth and educate you on topics that you may not know or haven't explored in regular classes. You are going that extra mile to obtain a greater achievement. If you think you can't do it, try it, and see what happens. When you reach the finish line, you will look back and value the knowledge you've gained.”
