I have been using this program for two years ever since my daughter was in kindergarten. We will be starting the 7-9 program in the fall. I absolutely love it. Everything is laid out so that you can complete the lessons in the time shown. We have had illnesses and field trips and a few days when we didn't get to school for whatever reason and we were still able to complete everything in 36 weeks. My daughter is definitely a gifted, hands-on learner and speaking as a gifted student myself, it's a great program. There is little to no prep time each day. I can just open the lesson and go.
