What is a half-grade?

I was reading a little snippet from a mini-bio on Charles Schultz (Peanuts) and it said that he did so well in school that he skipped a couple of half-grades.

What the heck does that mean? How do you skip half a grade?

  • And example is going from 1st grade to 2nd grade in the middle of the school year so that when one finishes the school year they are promoted to 3rd grade having done a partial year of 1st grade and a partial year of 2nd grade.
