Yeah you can. I mean you can drop out. One of my sisters friends did it when they were in 10th grade. The police didn't come after her. But that's all I know.

How can it affect it I'm a good way?

That's what I was wondering too. I recommend staying in school, since it shows commitment to finishing what you started. If you were an employer, and you had two similar job applications, would you choose someone that has high school graduation, or someone that doesn't?

18 (there are exceptions, if I'm not mistaken, and perhaps it varies by state), but stay in school.

its 18, when your considered an adult in the state (meaning you can drop out). cause at that age you could already move out of your parents house and get your own place.

that varies. if you become emancipated, you can quit at 16. there could be other situations that might allow you to quit, medical reasons, mental health, family reasons in some places. usually though, just sticking it out is the best way to go. you'll never again have a chance at a good education for free. believe me, you will need it later on, just because you might not be able to see how , doesn't mean it isn't true. good luck......

High school is the last opportunity to get an education paid for by the tax payers. It's your opportunity to figure out what subject matter you like and what you don't like. Take electives that seem fun ( maybe photography, art, forensic science). High school is also the time to take course in personal finance, so you can handle your fiances in the future. High school graduates make significantly more ( thousands ) than those who don't graduate .College graduates generally make even more money yearly then those with only a high school degree.

Just hang in there with school.

your parents can drop you out, i think... but i know a lot of people in my school drop out at 16, but the way they do it isn't legally the correct way.
