YAY! I'm glad she had fun and is looking forward to tomorrow. That's always a good sign. I'd like to know more about the part-time homeschooling option you're doing if you feel like sharing .
A charter high school (8-12th) will allow a few kids to go part-time. They seemed to like dd's test scores and she impressed them when she shadowed. So, they have been very accommodating. They have a block schedule so a one year course is completed in a semester. She takes two classes a semester, 4 for the year, so it is like going half-time. She's there from 8:10 to 11:00 (actually 11:30 because she wants to stay and visit over lunch, but we can leave at 11 if we need to do so). Next semester she will be there from 11:30 to 2:20 ( or from 11 if eating lunch there).
I don't know yet if she is homeschooling high school with a few public school classes on her transcript or if she will graduate through this high school. We're going to see how the year goes and then negotiate for future years. They do have kids doing some online courses as well as dual enrollment at the university or community college. I think they have allowed some self-designed courses (pass/fail only) but I'm not sure about that or what criteria must be met. We are homeschooling Lang. Arts/literature, history, Latin, music, PE, and art. However, the school will not be granting any credit for these. This is fine with us at this point. She will take Biology, Geometry this semester and then Spanish and Physical Science next semester from them.
The school has a large percentage of former homeschoolers (perhaps 30%?), so they are somewhat used to us. I would envision our daughter doing some blend of their classes, online courses, dual enrollment at the college, and some self-designed courses. Not sure they are ready (or able) to jump out on that limb with us. They are being pretty flexible so far. They understand my dd is young and accelerated, and that we're taking a unique path.
I'll post later about dd's one awkward moment today.
