@filmmaker, I was homeschool for a short period or two in elementary school, and have gone to both public and private school (a private christian school). Of all three public school was by far the best. The opportunities offered, the friends made, and the overall atmosphere is unbeatable. I'm not sure why you're homeschooled, maybe its because you had a rough time in school or something--I was homeschooled because when i was 9 and my family moved across the country I got really.. 'sick' and was diagnosed with postpartum depression (when it was really my hormones just being out of whack due to some thyroid problems). In that school district students diagnosed with any type of depression had to be homeschooled for a few months.. after that I was put into a certain program and when i moved to NC i was kept in it.. long story short i was homeschooled again in 5th grade because I was in a class of troubled kids when I really shouldnt have been.
But seriously, the opportunities I get in highschool are amazing, from sports to clubs to student council to internships with the DNC and awards and community service--I would never go back to homeschooling. You might be able to do some of these things still but it really isnt the same. And if you started home schooling because kids can sometimes be harsh, realize that they are nice people who go to your school and that in the real world youre going to meet jerks and brainiacs and cocky guys or back stabbing people. Im not trying to make up your mind or tell you its bad, its just that if i were still homeschooled I think I would want someone to tell me my different options.
Also, I'm super happy with my current grades:
95 - AP physics B
95 - Ceramics I
96 - AP Calc AB
A - Student Council(no grades yet but the teacher rly likes me and I participated a ton)
90 - Honors English II (which is a b... I'm confident it'll jump to an A though)
84 - AP Psych. even though this is supposed to be an easy class (in other schools) the 5 question quiz everyday is really killing me.. It'll go up to a 90 at least, hopefully an A though...
Also... I'm really thinking about my schedule for next year.. here are my ideas tell me what you think:
AP English (III)
AP Stat (most likely unless Calc BC is being offered)
AP Earth (normal for juniors to take)
AP World (AP world is a lot easier than AP US, but I might take APUSH since juniors generally take it at my school)
Chamber (Possibly, if not I''l just take Ceramics II)
Honors French IV
(Might take APUSH and AP world at the same time.. since World will be generally easy since I'd have taken the honors class over the summer, and US will be a little bit harder but its okay)
