I homeschool my son, he has just been accepted into the local community college in the dual-enrollment program. He scored higher than average for English and slightly above average on math. I don't homeschool because of the 'worldly' kids at the school. But, rather I decided I didn't want my child assaulted by other children on school bus. School buses seem to be roving zoos. My 8 year old told me about the teens in the back-having sex on the seats. I just could not force him to get on that bus every morning and facing the gauntlet on the why home for school. So we've been doing it for five years and really like it. He is starting advanced mathmatics and chemistry this year. He studied American Authors last year, the year we will be focusing on British Lit. , Critical Thinking 101, World history from 1500 through the 1900s. Last Year he studied world history from the begining of time to 1850' . He is also learning Spanish, his third year. My daughters are also learning spanish.
Our family loves to travel to national parks or state parks, hike, swim, or just observe fasinating features like geysers, erupting volcano, desert ecosystems, cave formations or just animals.
W e belong to the HSLDA because we are in a high compliance state that require lots of docmentation, portfolios, interviews with the child and sometimes its nice to know the HSLDA will be there should you encounter problems.
