Regular or honors chemistry before AP Chemistry?
So I just got my schedule this year and found out I wasn't placed in honors chemistry. I was recommended for it, but because I'm in a fairly small STEM program (~75 kids) I don't think they're offering honors chemistry b/c there wasn't enough demand for it. Usually, we have honors work on the side b/c the classes are so small that you can't make a class ALL honors. However, honors should still be designated on my transcript.
I think the issue though is that the honors chemistry class last year was the only class where everyone was in honors, so I'm not sure they'll be able to do the honors curriculum with the extra assignments like my previous honors classes.
Anyway, my schedule is weird b/c I go between two different places (stem program and then high school) so changing my schedule would be really hard. In the event that I would not be able to take honors chemistry at my high school, would regular chemistry be fine if I'm planning to take AP chemistry?
I was talking to one of my friends, and they said that AP chemistry always starts off the first couple weeks with a review of honors chemistry, so people who took regular chemistry struggle more just because they did not go as much in depth.
For reference on what I'm thinking of for senior year, this is what I'm planning:
AP Physics C
AP Calc BC
Psychology (fall) / English (spring) @ local CC online
Obviously, I want to be as prepared as possible for my senior year courseload. Advice?
