    Wow. He must be a bright kid.

    I'm a double major, when I was 12 I wasn't even thinking about college, or school at all for that matter.

    Well... to be honest, I think 5th grade is considered college in Florida.

    I was thinking the same thing. He's 12 for crying out loud.

    IMO no matter how smart he is he's gonna end up kinda screwed up down the road if he gets thrown into such a mature climate at his age.

    I think it's a good idea, just as long as he balances that with having fun.
    Going through middle and high school was going to do nothing for him except hold him back from an early start.
    Although age wise he's young intellectually he'll be a lot more in his element with older college students.
    If he stays in lower school he'll just be an incredibly smart kid being held down and probably would have a good chance of being the object of ridicule depending on what kind of climate his school is.
    Good luck to him.
