Honors give you weighted credit, and if you do well in them they look good on college applications.They are a higher level than the average classes. At my school school an A is weighted as a 5, while normal level classes are weighted a 4.
AP classes (Advanced Placement) are college level courses. At the end of the course you take an AP exam and if you pass it with a 3 or higher you are eligible for college credit at some schools. These classes are also weighted in your GPA. At my school an A is worth 6 for GPA purposes.

a.p stands for advanced placement

Plus they look good on transcripts.
Honors and AP classes are a little harder to do, they are for "gifted" studends, as is the GATE (gisted and talented education) program.

Honors classes, in my city, are only for the gifted and talented program students. In other, normal school districts, anyone can take them. Honors classes are weighted higher than regular classes.
