I love the first grade program. My daughter is learning alot and she is also a straight A student. The entire first grade has a weekly homework sheet that is given out on Monday. They do not have homework on Friday and on their breaks, even though I think they should. My son is in the fourth grade and he rarely has any homework. Even though he is a straight A student, he would still benefit from homework. They also need to have more advanced programs for those children who excel.
