Hi! For your position, I think that you should try to maximize your academics as much as possible, however you are able to. You don't have to take honors or AP, but attempt to take the most "difficult" classes available to you. It is also important to remember that there are other things that go into college admissions such as extracurriculars, awards, recognitions, etc. Especially in your position where honors and APs are not available, it would be beneficial for you to focus on these other aspects to support the academics that you already have/will complete! Good luck!
