  1. Have you looked into Davidson College, Pomona or Wheaton?
  2. The textbook DD's CTY teacher recommended is Campbell Biology. It may just be DD's teacher, but I wouldn't recommend CTY AP Bio. Also, I believe from now on CTY requires outside proctors for tests. Don't really have an alternate class to recommend; not much out there and that's how we ended up doing CTY. The Thinkwell biology teacher is good. DD enjoyed the videos (though long and many).
  3. DD did this last year (Honors Physics and Honors Pre-calc). She didn't finish her courses until summer. She did superb with both courses but they took a while.
  4. There was a recent post about giving PE pass/fail and many replied that colleges would weigh that as a C in the weighted GPA. Is this true for all colleges and for all classes? DD's flute teacher suggested that she switch her lessons from his private studio to the CC he teaches at. The course would be Pass/Fail. She doesn't really need the credit it's just cheaper and more experience for her playing in front of CC judges...etc. The new CC flute course would show up on her CC transcript (since she's planning to take other courses there). We were planning on doing this but now we are not sure. Does anyone know the policy for pass/fail classes and how they affect GPA?
  5. Thank you so much. Unfortunately, they are listing Logic as a prerequisite for the Lit Analysis class. So we will have to wait or take a different Lit Analysis class. Thank you.
  6. I talked to them this week and they said it should be posted in a week or so.
  7. Looks like I listed the wrong teacher for the class. Has anyone had any experience with Christie Jester's chem class?
  8. I noticed that you said T. took a preChem class. Do you feel T. would not have been properly prepared for the Chem class this year if she did not take the preChem? My dd is taking HS Bio this year. She's had a middle school level physical science (Rainbow and Plato) before that. I'm wondering if that will be enough.
  9. Yes, thank you very much for your reply and info. They are very helpful. I would also like to know about how much time is needed each week for the class. What type of homework do they have? DD is planning to take Lukeion Latin 1 next year so I want to make sure she's not over loaded. Thank you!
  10. Does anyone have any experience with Landry Academy's Online High School Chemistry class? I noticed that the two teachers have different syllabi. One listed 12 labs while the other listed 8 labs. Any experience with either Mrs. Prieskorn or Mr. Leingang? Also, I know that they use Spectrum Chemistry. From reading this forum, it seems that the labs for Spectrum Chemistry are important yet Landry uses different labs. Are the Landry labs less rigorous? Has anyone taken Landry Chemistry and done well in an AP Chem course afterwards? Thank you!
  11. Does anyone have any experience with Wilson Hill Academy's Honors Chemistry (Pre-AP) with Ann Welch or Literary Analysis and Argumentation with Cindy Lange? TIA
