Adding onto @crsgo0422's answer, completing a certain number of AP classes grants you an AP Diploma. Similarly, completing a certain number of IB classes grants you an IB Diploma. Both classes are valued in most universities worldwide.
AP classes include AP English Language and Composition, AP Physics 1, AP Physics 2, AP Calculus, AP Art History, etc.
IB classes include IB Chemistry, IB Physics, IB Mathematics, IB Visual Arts, etc. Something to note from IB classes is that to fulfill the requirements and gain the IB Diploma, you should take 3 IB Higher Level classes (classes that are a little more advanced and harder), 3 Standards Level classes (classes that are advanced, but not as much as HL classes), write an Extended Essay, and do activities related to social service, creativity, and exercise.

Ap classes are basically college level classes. They are challenging and taking them shows colleges that you can handle their academic work. At the end of the year, there are exams for ap classes. Doing well on those exams can give you credit for some colleges. Ib is basically the same as AP but used by different schools instead of AP. AP is more popular in the US though.
