I Graduated High School At 17

    Really?

    It would be impossible here. High school lasts five years, after 5 years of Primary School and 3 of Middle School. So the youngest we could be is 18 1/2 (because only kids aged at least 5 1/2 were allowed in 1st grade at Primary School).

    Youngest In My Class

    My birthday is at the end of September and I was always the youngest member of my class. My mom has always said that she should have held me back for a year, but I'm glad that she didn't.

    No 5th Grade

    I skipped 5th grade which is why I graduated at 17 and will start college at that age. People are always shocked when they find out I skipped a grade, because I've always fit in so well with the age group I was moved into. I've almost always been at least a little mature for my...

    I'm Not Special.

    I was just born on October 15, one day before the enrollment deadline.  So I started school at four.  Apparently I was the most immature kid in the class.  I remember that too.  Ha!  My how the tables have turned, kid!  Because by the end of school...

    After I graduated High School I went straight

    to college. I turned 18 the summer before my freshman year at college. Looking back now I kind of wish I had taken a year off.

    And a Year Early

    I was always a straight A student (and still am). When my family moved and I started a new high school in my sophomore year, I decided to take extra classes and summer school to get out of there as quick as possible. So, I was also 17 when I graduated after...

    Like Most People

    17 is the age you graduate high school here..well in most states in Australia. Some states you are 18 when you finish grade 12. I was 17 (turned about a month before) when I graduated from high school. All very exciting!
