We had used MOH 1 and 2 with Sonlight cores B and C (called 1 and 2 back then) when my kids were younger, and I had always wanted to use them for a 2nd rotation through World History. I also wanted to follow MOH's schedule, rather than squeeze MOH into Sonlight's 2 year history rotation. So, when my kids were in 6th and 8th grades, I started with MOH 1 again. What I found was that MOH 1 was very light for an 8th grader who had used it previously, and who had a strong background in Bible. Most of the stories were too familiar, and my history-loving son really wanted something more. It was perfect for my 6th grader though.
So, my son took a break from world history, and did Sonlight's Core 100 for his 9th grade year, while my daughter did MOH 2. He was looking forward to doing Sonlight's Core 300, but I said he needed to finish the AD years of World History first. Initially we chose another high school level world history, but after seeing several topics glossed over which I knew MOH discussed with a lot more depth, I encouraged him to give MOH another try. I gave him one week to decide, but he was instantly hooked!
Volume 2 has shorter readings than volume 3, so he read two chapters per day from Volume 2, and was able to finish up by our semester break. Now he's reading one chapter per day from Volume 3. I'm combining this with books from Sonlight Cores G, H, and 200, and he's really enjoying it.

MOH provides a great spine text to which you can add a variety of literature and projects to round out your high school year. Here is the MOH website's information for using MOH in highschool.
