    - does anybody have any advice on skipping a grade? My mother and I were talking about this a while ago, and we were thinking of trying to get me bumped up another grade after next year starts - I've been doing a lot of reading on it as well, recently, and I've been wanting to do it for a number of reasons, for a while now.

    So?

    I went from K4 to 1st Grade, skipped K5, and look how I turned out. :o:up:

    Freshman, right now - supposed to be a sophomore, which is one of the main reasons I want to skip a grade (for anyone who read my 'things you feel embarrassed to admit' thread); getting held back that one year is great source of feeling inadequate, for me.

    People still skip grades ? I thought that was only an elementary thing anyways a long time ago.
    I didn't think that it really worked in high school anymore, since you basically just take specific classes for each year.

    I wondered why you wanted to skip a grade. I wouldn't want to leave my friends hangin like that.

    If you think you can handle it then it would probably be best to advance yourself . It's not like your getting any younger and college will take a couple years. I say go for it if you feel ready.

    I say do it Superhobo. It'll be a little more responsibility, not much tho, but I think you can handle it.

    I'm thinking the whole getting held back thing might hurt your chances. Why were you held back?

    My parents tried to homeschool me, back in seventh grade - it didn't go 'as planned,' I'd guess is the best way to put it, and I ended up essentially not going to school for half a school year.
