I'm in the seventh grade and I just moved here from Florida. There is a different curriculum here that makes the students a year behind from where I came from in Georgia. That means I know all the answers to the tests already.
So I was wondering if it would be smart to just skip to the eighth grade, or stay in the seventh grade. The reason I'm having second thoughts is because I'm used to having a bunch of friends, boyfriends, etc. I know that when I start a new school I will have less friends, no boyfriend's. I feel that if I skip a grade then no one will want to go out with me or be my friend.
Should I do what's best for my future, or what's best for how I feel?
I'm willing to make a bet that you don't know everything. All through life there is room to learn. I think the best thing you can do for yourself is go ahead with your classes and don't think of moving ahead. Even if you are bright you will learn more.
Don't dwell of boys - it will all come in due course. Your lessons are the most important thing now. Your social life should be as a 7th grader and everything will fall into place.
So concentrate on being a 7th grader.
Here's to good grades.
