On a difficulty scale, 1-least impressive 10-most impressive. I've lurked here for a while and I see all these 'is this a good schedule?' threads and figured this would be useful.
I'll start (ignoring non-academic electives):


Honors Chem
Honors English
AP World
Algebra 2
Honors spanish 3
Psychology (pre-req for AP psych)
Have at it! I think it should also be noted that AP world is the only AP available to sophomores, and I also took AP Human last year (which was the only AP available for freshmen).

    That schedule is perfect if you ask me. It seems rather rigorous. I would give it around an 8 or 9 on the difficulty scale.

    Religion- Christian Person (I go to a catholic school so it is required)
    Sociology (Dual Credit)
    Accounting (DC)
    Comp 102 (DC)

    My school does not offer any AP's for seniors. I also opted not to take calculus because I want to go into Poli Sci and I was told that statistics would be a good class to take.

    I agree, but surprisingly it diminished as you progress in HS. About 13, I think, not sure. Yours seems way rigorous though.
