Shanna, I had to attend an American school for nearly a year (I'm English, by the way) and the curriculum made me very miserable. At the age of fourteen in Britain, we choose our GCSE options. Maths, English Language, Literature, two science subjects, and a modern foreign language are compulsory, but you then pick four subjects that you like - mine were Religious Studies, history, Latin, and drama. At the age of sixteen, you have to take three or four A-Levels (more if you are intellectually able enough) but there are no compulsory subjects. I dropped maths and the sciences like a hot potato and now take Literature, English Language (though the latter is quite scientific at this level) French, Religious Studies, and Psychology.
At the American school, everyone had to take mandatory maths and science courses right the way up to the top grade!
I really dislike this system, as it means that a.) your weak subjects pull your G.P.A down and don't give a true picture of your abilities, and b.) you can't burrow deep enough into the subjects that you are good at, as the mandatory courses take up so much time. The American curriculum is definitely broader in terms of the number of subjects they make you take, but the topics aren't covered in enough detail to satisfy me.
I feel for you. Any more maths, and I would have gone mad.
Emigrate to England, you know you want to...
