    Yep

    I actually skipped two grades. I was only sixteen years old when I graduated from high school because of this. When everyone else was driving our sophomore year of high school i couldn't even get my permit. :(

    I skipped sixth grade

    because it was way too easy... I also had the chance to skip fifth grade but my mom didn't want me to because she feared for the age gap and not fitting in but the class (the group of people) I was with welcomed me warmingly and now I love them as family.

    I skipped seventh grade.

    It was never really an issue except for driver's ed and filling out paperwork when I got to college.
