And do you feel the program is worth the price? Thank you.

Yes, diagramming.
Yes, worth the price, but DD prefered Shurley English.

Yes, it has diagramming. It doesn't start diagramming right at the beginning of the book (at least not the 5th grade one, anyway), but once it introduces it, it has the kids diagram a few sentences a day. I think it's worth every penny (especially if you buy it at CBD with a free shipping code). If you use it with more than one child, all you have to do is buy a new student text, so you can save a little money there.

I absolutely love this program. There are great explanations, examples and practice problems, and I love the mixed review. Every year my son uses it (he's in level 7), he is better able to apply the concepts. My dd is using it for the first time this year and it has been a good fit for her as well.

ETA: Just looked at the price at CBD and it's a little higher than when I purchased it, but still significantly less than retail.

Thank you very much. I am leaning towards using this for my 5th grader.

Yes

In terms of price, did you see the homeschool package on Rainbow? Cheaper than ordering from the Saxon site.

What she said. LOVE it. We even like the writing instruction alongside WWE.
