Many families of high achieving students sign up for too many specialized courses in high school, and forget to prioritize the core curriculum.
Megan walks us through a set of reasons why we don’t want to make this mistake. Specifically, she discusses:
- which classes are considered core and how many years you need
- why four years in “other languages” is so important, even if it’s hard to do
- examples of areas in which families make mistakes, such as specialized courses in medicine and engineering
- the importance of choosing specialized courses IN ADDITION to, rather than as a REPLACEMENT for, the core curriculum.
