Anyway, hello; I am a high school freshman looking for some advice. My school uses a "4 by 4 schedule" in which each semester is equal to a full year of a class (if that makes any sense). Next semester I am registered for Biology (regular course; my school does not offer honors classes in the sciences). However, I would like to take an Honors Biology course instead, possibly online, especially as my future teacher is apparently very . . . out there, spacey, insane, whatever you wish to call it. As a result, I am worried that I may not find this class as interesting or informative as I might have otherwise. I have looked all over the Internet for such a course, but I would love to hear some first-hand experiences and recommendations. I am looking for a class that is interesting and informative, especially one with labs (hopefully both simulated and hands-on/at-home). FLVS and JHU CTY both seem like fairly good options, but I am a bit concerned about their prices; although I have certainly not thrown them out of the range of possibility, I would love to find a great, interactive course that does not have to take so much out of the pocket.
