I do know a couple of people who skipped their senior year of high
school, and they both had trouble getting into college. [One of them had
very good grades too.] All of my counselors told me to stay the full time
and get the best preparation I could. Consider some A.P. classes, or
cross-enrollment in some classes at a local college, if you're bored with
the standard ones: they'll keep you on your toes academically. Besides,
senior year is usually the most fun one anyway. It was for me.
So much for my $0.02. Good luck.
