I see a lot of people automatically assuming that home schooling = social awkwardness. It all depends on the outside activities. My mom homeschooled us through grade school and enrolled us in a lot of extracurricular activities to develop friendships. She was a certified teacher and felt she could provide a better education than the schools in our area.
I asked to go to the high school because I wanted to be part of a graduating class and she had no problems with that. However, I did skate through the 1st 2-3 years in most subjects because I already learned them at home in grade school. It was a little depressing to feel that I wasn't learning anything and almost reconsidered attending school. I already knew most of the kids in my class from the extracurricular activities so the whole social aspect wasn't really making up for the lack of mental challenges. I did end up with some more advanced math classes, which my mom wasn't good at teaching, so I stayed in school in the end.
