should I take a mixture of honors and AP classes or AP only?

In regards to your question just make sure to take all graduation requirements such as x semesters in y subject. Then look at additional classes that are relevant to your major/field. If you know you want to major in engineering/math don’t take multiple music classes. But when it comes down to all AP or a mix of AP and honors it doesn’t matter as both are seen as highly rigorous and as long as your gpa is a good mix of As and Bs I don’t see why you should only take APs exclusively.
Also for some AP subjects it’s super duper hard like AP chem is super challenging so if you aren’t really into Chem I’d take Honors Chem instead.
Also at my school in order to take AP chem we have to take Chem first your school is likely different so talk to Your counselor for best path forward. Also as long as you take a healthy yet plentiful amount of Homors and AP courses taking a normal class is nothing to be ashamed of. I really don’t like x subject but I need it to graduate so I’ll take the normal class instead is a perfectly valid path.
Hope this helps and please comment if you need clarification as I’d be happy to help clarify!
