The state's compulsory education law requires the student to remain in school until the age of sixteen. However, the state's legal age of majority if 18, therefore if the student's parents object to the child's wanting to quit, they can force him or her to remain in school.

Yes, if you have a parent or legal guardian's consent.

I dropped out of high school at 16 in Massachusetts with parent consent, the law will require you to stay in highschool until your 18 if you dont have the parent consent to drop out because they are still technically responsible for you until you are 18.

In the US, any student wishing to leave school before he or she reaches the age of majority for the state in which they reside must have parental consent. The age of majority for Massachusetts is 18.
