  • 16 and wants to go to another school

    Hello,
    I am 16 and I've ran away for about 2 months now I found a place to live for 300 a month.I live in the state Georgia and the law against runaways is rough. I'm wanting to go to a different school because im scared of the school that I go to know it gives me severe depression. The school that i want to go doesnt. How do I move schools without my parents getting involved.
