My nephew has a masters in math, and teaches at a public high school. He told me that he prefers Saxon, because he felt it was the most rigorous and college prep. For that reason, if Saxon is working for you, I would continue to use it. If Saxon is NOT working for you, then look at a math book from the other good choices that are out there, knowing that nothing is perfect and learning is the key - not the textbook.
I will add that if your child HATES math, then it is probably a misfit with the curriculum. Not every child loves math (no kidding! LOL!) but you may be able to prevent a child from "hating" math, and get them to the point of tolerating it, if you choose a curriculum that is a good fit.
Here is another "no-brainer": A child will be better prepared for college and life if they gain mastery over a "fine" curriculum that is a good fit. They will be less prepared for college and life if they are "just passing" with a curriculum that is more rigorous.
And now you are enlightened!
