Help your student create and structure their school curriculum with these considerations.

Are you wondering whether your student should be taking honors and AP classes or participating in the International Baccalaureate program? The answer is: it depends. College prep should be based on your student’s interests and capabilities.

How can you help plan an effective high school curriculum?

Plan ahead. Curriculum planning starts when your student enters high school. What are the goals? What prerequisites will your student need to meet?

Don’t specialize too early. Encourage your student to get a broad education in high school.

Make sure curriculum matches capabilities.Many schools simply want to see college prep courses, while others expect an extremely rigorous curriculum. What’s right for your student?
