    I've been waiting for someone to make this, too. I'm 15, from the Northeast, and homeschooled. Here's my schedule:
    English/history 9 (double credit class)
    AP Calculus BC
    AP Physics C
    Spanish 4
    German 1
    School's been going for about a week now. Right now, I expect I'll end up at some large state university, and I'm not sure what I'll be studying, since I love all of my classes except for the writing part of English.

    Since I only have 5 classes, before school started I was considering adding a sixth, just to have another class. My first day, though, I was very glad that I didn't!

    I don't really feel like sharing identifying information over the Internet (shocker! It's not like schools have yearly assemblies on cybersafety and security).

    Also, wow, can't believe you guys have already picked out colleges. I haven't quite done enough research for that.

    School hasn't started yet for me tho

    I'm a little bummed.
    I didn't get the AP Human Geography or the AP Art History.
    This school requires a semester of Health (Boring) but I got to pair it with
    Honors Psychology so THAT may work out.

    Honors English 9
    Honors Algebra II
    Honors World History
    Honors Bio
    Health/Honors Psychology
    PE
    Cross your fingers for me!
    I start tomorrow!

    The school I am in now is a lot like traditional school.
    We have semester classes (my health class was only a semester) and semester grades.
    Because I can work faster (or slower) as it suits me my semester end is not really dated.
    Right now it looks like my semester will end the week of January 14.

    Recently joined.
    My schedule for freshman year with quarter-wise grades was:
    AP Physics 1 -- BBAA
    Honors English 1 -- ABBA
    AP World History -- BBBA
    AP Comp Sci A -- BBAA
    Honors Algebra II -- AAAA
    Math Research 2 -- BAAA
    Honors Chemistry -- AAAA

    This year was really stressful. Mostly because I took AP Physics. I did end up with an A average(thank the lord) but had to work my ass off. And honestly, my English teacher was annoying as hell because I had borderline B's every time and she deliberately did not give me the extra credit(I did all that she gave). I had always been a straight-A student up until last year. I hope this year is much better. Planning on taking AP Chemistry and Spanish 2 next year. Should I switch them with Data Structures and Algorithms and Physics Lab?

    I thought about Spanish 2 because I haven't filled my language requirement for high school. Other than that, I don't have a reason for taking it. Should I take AP Chem and Spanish next year or switch them?
