  • Wanting to finish high school

    Well I'm 17 going to be 18 in 5 months . I'm really considering running away because everything else ive tried to get me out of that hostile environment has failed. Cps,asking to go live with a friend or trusted individual and although I'm trying to get in contact with lawyer to see my options, i doubt id have enough proof to get the court to relinquish my mothers parental rights. If i am to runaway i dont plan on staying with anyone so that they wouldn't get in trouble for harboring a runaway but I still want to go to school because i cant just quit after almost 4 years of ap and college classes. So I guess my question is would the police be able to find me in school and somehow force me to go home ? And if my mother was to withdraw me from my highschool could I go back to that high school and enroll myself back in, if not what do I do to finish highschool and get my diploma?
