    My situation with my grade skipped and subject accelerated child is ability to get to DE classes so for 9th and 10th grades he has been doing AP (english comp and English lit, human geography, bio, us gov and micro economics and music theory). Next year he still won’t be able to drive so he will do AP calc, AP ush, AP World. Then we will consider DE for his senior year.

    Our school district essentially forces kids into AP classes over dual enrollment (which is an option) by giving a GPA boost to the AP courses, but not the dual enrollment courses. AP classes are scored out of a 6.0, Pre-AP out of a 5.0 and community college classes count as regular level classes 4.0.

    I'd prefer dual enrollment classes as I think they give a more realistic college experience. But GPA is important for college admissions, especially in Texas where we have auto admit programs for the top 10%.
