I am about 13 years old and I have always been interested in home schooling. I really don't want to brag, I'm just being honest, but I am very clever and I often already know what the teachers spend an hour explaining to the class. I really feel very bored at my school because I barely learn anything, not to mention the fact that I hate my school and the principal. Even subjects that could and should be interesting like humanities / SOSE / social studies / whatever you call it are dull for me. The teachers are always saying things such as: "We'll extend you to enrich and challenge you," but it's all rubbish and nothing like that ever happens. The only subject that I find challenging (but not too hard) is extention maths, but I only get this subject once a week.
However, I don't benefit much from my cleverness because I still get assignments and things which take ages to do but teach me nothing. I play two musical instruments - the recorder and the oboe - and I dream of practicing for an hour every day and getting really good at them, but I just don't have the time. If I was home schooled I would practice more. On the subject of social stuff, I do Scouts with lots of other people my age, I have two sisters, two cousins my age and a friend with whom I would keep in touch, and I would and I also meet and get to know lots of people in books.
I want do do home schooling not for any small reasons, but because I genuinely want to learn and reach my potential but I am not finding that easy to do at school.
Do you think that home schooling or online schooling would be a good solution to my problems?
I live in Australia.
