I'm 15... I want to drop out of school?
I know it's too young, I know I won't get a job...
I'm tired of having asthma attacks and panic attacks every single day at school (have uncontrolled asthma)
I'm tired of being ignored, or bullied by everyone else.
I'm tired of getting yelled at by teachers for forgetting... It's not my fault. I can't remember.... I can't even remember what I say sometimes. My memory is a wreck.
I'm tired of being exhausted all the time from school.
I'm tired of basically starving because there is no time to eat.
I'm tired of trying to get at least a 3.0 GPA. I know it won't happen.
I'm tired of school.
I'm only 15.
How can I drop out?
My grandparents (who have custody) don't have to be involved do they?
I have valid reasons right?
I mean, during the school year I go into a deep depression. I don't eat. I am always exhausted, half the time I don't care about anything.
Please help?
Update: I can't be good at school
I try to study, my brain won't allow it to remember.
I don't know.
I can't remember.
I forget assignments, how to do the work, etc.
Have to go to public school...
I have talked to the counselor. She looks at me funny and is half skeptical of anything I tell her.
Update 2: My gpa is 1.7 - 2.5
I try sometimes to get 3.0 but can't. My bad memory prevents me from doing so.

Your first step should be to talk to your guidance counselor. If dropping out is the best option for you, they will even help you do that (I know from personal experience). My guess is, you need some alternative choices in school. Many schools offer alternative programs for kids who just can't thrive in the general population. Another alternative might be night school. Check your local Adult Education facility and see if you can enroll in a self-paced GED course to attain your GED instead. Finally, there are some self-study type homeschool programs that might work for you. School and Education are not always synonymous, but Education is very important...school, not so much sometimes...

My niece wants to drop out of high school she lives with her grandma who is her Guardian. If the Guardian signs off can my 15year old niece drop out of school?

It depends on the state, and in yours it is 17. However, you do have other options. Homeschooling is an option, but in Pennsylvania they are serious about it and you must regularly submit portfolios according to state law to the superintendent of schools to prove it is actually an education. And as my colleague notes, you can be held responsible for not performing your duty as a guardian by not ensuring that your child is educated according to the law.
