That may depend greatly on which state you live in and its laws governing this question. In most states you can drop out, but I don't recommend doing so. Statistically it is more difficult to find jobs wothout a high school education. If you decide to go ahead and drop out, I would suggest that you enter 'Job Corp' and most definatley get your GED as well.
Recently, in late March 2008, the Senate passed a bill saying that you must be seventeen to drop out of high school legally in Maryland, as opposed to the original sixteen years of age you could have been before March.
As of 2009, you have to be seventeen. (17)
I think it is sixteen.

Yes they can.
Yes,of course. Anywhere you live you have the right to drop out of school.
You are allowed to drop out of school at any age. But, it is never a good choice. I mean , who am I to interfere with your personal life, but whatever it is , Yes you can drop out of school at the age of 16 :)
Depends on the state; in many states it is sixteen. Depends on the state; in many states it is sixteen.
He was sixteen so... Sophomore year
Stop going to school.
No, you are required by law to go to school until you are 18 I believe
It is currently sixteen years of age.
Yes you can. You can enroll in GED classes at a community college and keep your license as long as you're enrolled. I droped out of highschool when I was sixteen and this is what I did. But, I would highly, HIGHLY, encourage you not to drop out of school; it's not easy for those of us that have.
Sixteen. And don't do it. You'll regret it for the rest of your life.
The state's compulsory education laws set the age a minor can stop attending school at sixteen (16).
Get emancipated and stop going.
Uh... You can drop-out any time you want. Your parents will have to pay for that though. You can not legally drop out of H.S. in NYS just because you turn sixteen. You must complete the school year you are in.
high school Ledger was sixteen, so that would probably make him a sophomore (by American standards). Also, in America, you legally have to stay in school until you are sixteen (I don't know what the Australian laws are like).
It depends on the specific state in question. There are states where you must be 17 or 18 to drop out.
Seventeen year olds can not drop out of school, even with parents' permission. Arkansas has a manditory attendance law for students under 18. Sometimes with acceptance into a GED program, some 17 year olds can leave school. Seventeen year olds can not drop out of school, even with parents' permission.

No, and the school age is going up to 18 now
Tennessee compulsory education law requires the student to remain in school until the age of seventeen (17).
once your a junior you can drop out Once your SIXTEEN you can drop out. You have a choice to get an education- if you drop out- you'll be a bum the rest of your life If you slept with cucumbers, then my eggs cant get any worse
Not really, as long as you drop out it wont be required by law. So no, just drop out.(: I don't recommend dropping out.
