Standard or College Prep?
Answered

I'm filling in self-report sections for college admissions. I have taken many honors and some AP classes. But since my school is very small some subjects don't offer honors. For example, visual art, spanish, computer science, gym (obviously), and as of last year even english. I'm not sure whether to put the level down as "standard" or "college prep"? Which one is more accurate if there wasn't a choice of honors? And which would look better?

College prep would look better, but I think standard is more accurate. In theory, admissions officers won't penalize you for not having those honor classes since your school doesn't have those courses.

Regular would be more accurate. There is a way to enter how many honor/ap courses your school offers.
