Homeschool Grade Levels and Graduation Age

Homeschool Grade Levels and Graduation Age
When homeschool kids are younger, and someone asked about grade level, it's not uncommon for a parent to say, "Well...she is in third grade reading, 5th grade math, and can spell at a 7th grade level!" Rarely did you hear a parent come right out and say, "He is 7 years old, therefore he is in 2nd grade." However, in high school the pressure to assign grade levels can be intense.
