That's really painful. A colleague was just telling me that her
daughter, although she loves music and art, will not take any more
electives because she's itching to become valedictorian, which means
getting all the honors classes she can (it's very competitive at her
school); the electives don't come in Honors flavor.

Is what you're asking for is info for making an Honors class out of your
current classes? If so, I have a list of standards our school uses that
I could send you.
