    Thank you for contacting NRS,
    It sounds like you are 18 and wanting to transfer elsewhere. we are sorry to hear home is not somewhere you feel comfortable. From what we understand every case is different and would depend on the school administration. Some things to keep in mind are that as an adult at 18 you would technically have the ability to do so. However, some schools will not recognize you as an adult until you graduate. It might be a good idea to get in touch with your school and ask them what their procedure as you are not doing anything wrong but more so just asking a question.
    We are here as support to help through this challenging time. We can best help by phone or chat as NRS is unable to respond more than twice by email to assist you. If you would like to talk more in detail please call or chat soon.
