Anyone heard of it?
Anyone know anything about it?
I'm looking at it and it seems too good to be true.
Thanks for replying. Smile

I have not used the curriculum myself. Here are some links for reviews that might be helpful to you:

I did check it out and I think it is excellent. I am an author of some educational resources and software, on high frequency words, I won't give any details here; per rules.

When I watched some of the videos, I realized that he really knows what he is talking about and he is spot on.

Please note one section where he highlights the fact that our sciences, maths, physics, chemistry is over 100 and more years old. This means we have not advanced current science since then. In short we don't have academically well trained people to advance our understanding and improve of the old logics/axioms and laws in these subjects. You can give your child the old old books and they are better because no new discoveries or any changes have or need to be made.

Excellent work and so much so that I am now working out how to do home schooling of our children, not due to social or moral reason but academic reasons only.
You want an a child that is intelligent don't send it to school.

Even an A+ graduate is still way below par of what these kids will achieve if it is done as he says in his video.

When we first started homeschooling my husband and I came upon this curriculum and liked it. But somehow we forgot about it but it is the philosophy we are trying to implement so thanks for reminding me about it!
