Do these kids who audit high school/college classes as a young child, end up eventually just repeating the same courses over and over again so they can get that credit/grade on their permanent record? I hope I'm making myself clear


Some schools teach AP courses as first year courses to qualified students while others require their advanced students to take an honors level chem., physics or bio prior to AP chem., physics or bio. Knowing your schoolís usual sequence for strong science students would help with your planning.

For example, my daughterís high school has exactly seven science courses and my sonís high school offers twelve, while a nearby high school offers thirty!
