Enough for high-school course?

Hello. I'm home-schooled and am simply curious if the books I have which I am using as my geometry course are enough to cover everything. I am quite interested in all topics in math, so I would like to make sure I'm not missing out on anything.

I have:

Geometry, Serge Lang & Gene Murrow
Geometry: Euclid and Beyond, Robin Hartshorne (which I will be reading concurrently with vols. I and II of Heath's translation of the Elements)

I'm mainly using the book by Lang and Murrow as my course and Hartshorne's is 'just for fun'. I also have an almost painful to read standard high-school textbook by Ron Larson, but it's quite worthless.

I have read about a text by Moise entitled "Elementary Geometry from an Advanced Standpoint" however if I have everything covered already I'm not going to look into it as it is expensive.

So, my question is: Would Lang & Murrow's text with Hartshorne's and the Elements cover everything necessarry for high-school geometry? If not, is there anything anyone would recommend?
