ktgrok Posted September 11, 2012 Share Posted September 11, 2012 My sister is a vice prinicpal in a highschool here in Florida. She's FULL of info on homeschooling :tongue_smilie:. One thing is she says that now advanced kids take "high school credit" physical science in 7th grade and Earth Space science in 8th grade. I said I see no point to this, as he is going to take the full series (Bio, Chem, Physics, and something else) in high school. Plus, colleges from what I understand don't give a hoot about "earth space science", etc. But she insisted that is how it is done, and wants to know if the science classes my son is doing for 7th and 8th are "high school credit". Um...He's doing Physics III from NOeo, which is for 7th-9th graders, and next year will do Chemistry III, which is also for 7th -9th. I suppose you could say it is high school level if you wanted, but who the heck cares? Our views are so different (me wanting to cover what is interesting, rigorous, and needed for college...her focusing on what normal kids take in highschool), and i don't know what to believe.
