Is ap/ib or honors better on collegevine?

At my school, honors classes are at a higher ranking than ap/ib. But, I know that ap/ib is better than honors in a lot of places. I need to know if honors are better than ap/ib on collegevine so I know I can get my profile correct. Thank you!

This doesn't really make sense. AP/IB are harder and ranked higher for their rigor because they are college level while honors are more difficult than standards because they have more homework so they require you to study more on your own. I don't know why your school would say that but I'm assuming they have a reason. Since you need good grades in standards to be in honors and good grades in preferably honors to take AP they are ranked as standard, honors, AP.
