Colleges look at your application within the context of your school. They'll know that your school didn't offer AP or Honors classes and will take that into consideration. Having said that, you should still be aiming to take the most rigorous courses available to you.

In the additional information section, you can put that you didn't have those courses. Also, ask your counselor to mention it in your recommendation letter. Just try to make sure that you still are taking the hardest course load possible and you should be fine.

Make sure you have taken the most rigorous course load possible within your context. My first high school didn't offer APs or Honors classes either so instead, I took a couple classes a year early for a more challenging course load. I took four senior classes as a junior, which is a possible venture for you to consider. Also, if possible, consider taking AP classes online at a credited online school program like John Hopkins or Stanford's online high school.

Maintain a strong GPA as well and try to be at the top of your class. As long as your guidance counselor affirms that you have taken the most challenging courses possible on your counselor report, no school will hold not taking Honors/AP classes against you.

Hope this helps!
