Whatever you do , don't drop out .
You could atleast try regular highschool and see if you can handle it or not.
Honestly If I had gotten pregnant a year early I would have done independent study .

I had transfered to a charter (accelerated pace) school the day before I found out I was pregnant (ironically), went there until Hayden was about 2 months old, and now I go to the same charter school in a different city, with my boyfriend.



I considered going back for senior year as well, but changed my mind because I'll be graduating 1/2 a year early staying at the charter school.

I went to school. I let my teachers know that I was pregnant and they tried to work with me. Some gave me work ahead of time others stayed late to help. If I had doctors appts they were great with that. They let me leave class early to miss the rush of kids. Just talk to your school. they do help.

I started going to an alternative school way before I got pregnant, but that was my choice. It's a small school with 6 teachers and only100 students or so, so everyone already knew me there when I told them I was pregnant. I went to school the whole year up until my due date [which was very end of april].I was 16 when I found out, and 17 when I had him. They were so helpful to me and still are. They work with me a lot now by allowing me to go twice a week and do the rest at home. Not everyone is as lucky as me though. My school doesn't give homework, so that definitely made things easier. You could always look in to that. Whatever you do though, DO NOT drop out!! And if you want to stay at your school now, then do it.But find some way to finish.
