    ^I don't even think they teach Home Economics in High School anymore.

    I think most members covered it, but I agree with seeing what your child is interested in and good at when choosing subjects.
    I'm not sure how much choice they have in picking their electives, but you don't have a choice on many subjects.

    I had to take French for one year in High School, but I took it all through High School because I liked it.
    Computers, Robotics, Physics, Geography, and a Foreign Language are all great recommendations. Does your son/daughter want to go on to uni?
    If so, they may need certain subjects depending on what their major will be. My good friend teaches Geography in High School in London and seems to have a lot of students interested in it.

    ^Well you may be surprised to know that many girls are now going into Maths, Sciences, Robotics, and Engineering field.
    Just because these subjects/jobs are more male dominated, you get Robotics taught now in some Elementary schools, starting with coding. I knew many girls in Uni in the Engineering and Sciences field.
