    As far as medical school goes, what she takes now isn't truly vital.
    However, you should check with colleges to see what each requires as
    prerequisite.
    Your daughter should have math at least to pre-calculus, should have
    the equivalent of 4 years of English, and should have biology,
    chemistry, and physics. Other advanced science classes might help and
    having her take a class or two at a community college might be a good idea.
    Also, extra-curricular activities should be emphasized and your daughter
    may consider volunteering at a nursing home or attending a medical mission
    trip, etc...

    These will all help! Remember, though, check with individual colleges about
    their requirements.

    Best wishes!
