depends on the situation. i dropped out when i was 17, 3 months from graduation, cause i couldnt handle it anymore. was in a terrible relationship, depression was going untreated, and going to school was leading me further and further down a i road i wouldnt have come back from. luckily, my mom suggested i drop out. high school isnt for everyone, and obviously the people in here saying ur gonna be a burger flipper are down right morons, everyone has their pace and speed they need to take life. some people excel in regular academics, others dont. i took a year off and worked on my life, helped around the house, learned some valuable life lessons before i went back and got my high school diploma through a independent studies program.
i cant really tell anyone to stay in school, or drop out, its entirely subjective. high school isnt as serious as anyone makes it out to be, and youre not gonna be some loser or nobody because you didnt go through high school. it took me a long time to realize that fact. im working now, in a stable relationship, and doing shit that i love daily. you gotta find a happy medium in your life, and if high school is a detriment to that, consider alternatives
