Advanced Academic Courses
The Donna Independent School District offers K-12 Advanced Academic Programs, Gifted/Talented for elementary schools and Pre-AP/AP for secondary schools. Advanced Academic courses offer more rigorous curriculums than standard high school courses do. While only some advanced courses result in college credit, those that do can also help students fulfill college requirements before leaving high school, potentially saving thousands of dollars on college tuition. Students who participate have been associated with higher student achievement and college readiness.
In addition, these students tend to be more successful in college admissions, scholarships, college grade point averages, and college completion rates. For more information, contact our Advanced Academic Department at (956)464-1600 ext. 1062.
