Advanced Academics

At MISD, we believe that safe, engaging, rigorous, and diverse learning environments provide the best opportunity for students to reach their fullest potential. Through advanced academic coursework, students have access to innovative and challenging curriculum that will help prepare them for post-secondary endeavors. 

Why Consider Advanced Academics? 

  • Advanced courses expose students to rigor and challenges similar to college coursework. This environment helps prepare students for the fast-paced rigor they will experience in post-secondary learning environments. 
  • Taking Advanced Placement courses and scoring well on AP exams may earn a student college credit. Successful completion of dual credit courses also provides college credit and allows for the possibility to skip introductory college courses. 
  • Advanced coursework demonstrates your passion and academic interest in particular courses. This shows college admissions that you are serious about your passion and have the skills necessary to pursue them.
