Some classes at Littleton High School are grouped so that individual students may progress at a rate different from that of the regular classes. Decisions involving grouping in these classes are based on interest, standardized test results, teacher and counselor recommendations, and previous grades.
* Honors Courses: The methods and materials are designed to provide enrichment and depth to the courses. In some cases students may enroll in honors courses one or more years earlier than would be the normal period for instruction.
* Advanced Placement Courses: Littleton High School implemented the Advanced Placement Program in the fall of 1975. Some specific subject matter requirements for graduation may be waived. Students may cross-enroll in AP courses among the three high schools in the district. AP classes offered are Studio Art, English, Calculus, Biology, Chemistry, Physics, Spanish Language, French Literature, American History, European History, Psychology and Computer Science.
* Basic Skills courses: These courses are offered in some academic areas to students who have demonstrated a need for additional concentrated instruction in the basic fundamentals of required academic areas.
Note: For the suggested International Baccalaureate sequence of courses, see the IB page.
