How many APs? Is this enough?

Hello all,

I’m currently a sophomore in high school. Right now, I’m enrolled in a distance learning school, because the local school district sucks. Basically, I will get credits, and it is an accredited high school. Anyway, I have an A- average, I’m currently taking Biology, Agebra 2, World History, Spanish 2, and English 2. Last year I took Env. Science, Geometry, World Geography, Spanish 1 and English 1. Due to ‘complications’, I couldn’t choose my courses last year or this year. However, I am working to finish Algebra 2 early, so that I can move onto Precalculus. I’m also planning on taking Spanish 3 over the summer.

My family will be moving soon, and the high school is very good and has 24 APs. I won’t be taking all of them, because I’m not interested in some of the classes. Junior year I plan to take: AP Calculus AB or BC, AP English literature and comp., AP U.S History, Chemistry, AP Spanish, and AP Statistics. Senior year is: AP Calculus BC or college-level math, AP English lang. and comp., AP Psychology, AP U.S Gov. and Politics, college-level Spanish, AP Biology, and AP Microeconomics. So, I should have about 8 or 10 APs, depending on what they suggest. I’m planning to apply to top colleges, so how does this look? Will they take into consideration that I couldn't choose my courses for two years? These are all things I really like too..... thank you!
