PLEASE PLEASE PLEASE continue to develop ALL SUBJECTS FOR EACH LEVEL! My kids adore the program as much as I do! My only regret is not pursuing homeschooling earlier, this being our first year. Nothing compares! However, I am worried that we will not have a subject needed for the next level?!? I can only imagine the difficulty in getting a level off the ground but knowing what the plan will be going forward allows me to breathe easy. Thank you for your time and effort in making MBP engaging, challenging and thoughtful.

At the moment, we are working on some more high school language arts and social studies but we can give no promises on release dates. Our best estimate is Fall 2022 before you see any more levels. I completely understand your concerns! My daughters are finishing seventh grade this year!

In reading through multiple threads here, it seems people have been begging you for HS curriculum for years, and you keep promising it. I see posts from as early as 2014 saying it was coming. What has become clear is that we cannot count on MBTP to have anything developed in time for my daughter to use them. Apparently, you came to a full stop on development and switched your focus to building a math curriculum, which I didn't see anyone asking you for. What I did see, over and over, was loyal users of your program asking for high school level language arts, science, and social studies. Disappointing doesn't even begin to cover it.

I apologize that you are unhappy with the speed of our curriculum development. We are a small family-run company and are unable to produce new curriculum at the speed you may find elsewhere. Delays were often due to changes in family needs of our language arts and social studies curriculum writers. At the moment they are working on further levels of high school language arts and beginning to look at hiring another writer for the social studies levels. I, personally, have two daughters who just completed 7th grade, and I would love for more curriculum to be there for them in high school. Unfortunately, as a company, we cannot make any promises on when this will be available.
