I know. I was able to get into Advanced Problem Solving my sophmore year at my school for the gifted(its only a 3 year high school). Thats skipping 5 levels of core math that they offered. We dont have calculus, Algebra 2, etc. we just had Mathematic Inquiry 1-4(it was like algebra, triginometry, combinatorics, stuff that normally would be 5-9 courses we rolled into 4). then basic calculus or advanced calculus, and then you had advanced problem solving and then you could choose your electives, like number theory, advanced geometry, and multivariable calculus or 20 other types of math classes.
