Early Graduation

Would you let your child graduate early if they worked extra hard during the summer to get a lot of their core classes finished before the school year.

  • omg yes..... the sooner the better in my opinion. I graduated out at 161/2 and started college within a week. I got a lot of life and work experience in and although I didn't have a HUGE circle of friends, I still had gobs of free time to see them.

  • My daughter will be graduating a full year early and will go to our local community college for a year to get her core courses in and work.

  • Sure as long as they were taking classes that would help them do well in college and were taking education seriously. I would say probably not if they were only taking the bare minumum and wouldn't be prepared for college.

  • Sure as long as they understood they would be starting college as soon as they were out of high school.
