I didn't mean to come across strongly against skipping per se, or judgemental of OP for considering it, and I hope I didn't sound that way. Just wanted to throw out a few considerations, but mainly to point out that ultimately, whatever your decision is, there is likely no perfection. So unless something goes horribly wrong, don't look back. She may be somewhat unhappy down the road in either grade - it's up to you (and your school) to decide which is likely to be the "better unhappy" for her. And then daven that it should be an amazing placement and she is only happy Smile

I’m curious to hear from people who either skipped and regretted it. Or people who should have skipped and didn’t and were happy or unhappy with their decision. Not really hearing why people think it’s such a bad thing.

One of my children was way ahead of the others in his/her class and the principal decided to send this child to the next grade. I absolutely refused, and glad. As mentioned above, a child may be ahead in one area but behind in another that hasnt presented itself clearly. Only push / skip a grade if an outside, super professional educato/ specialist spent time to test the child and approved it. Its hard to be a year younger than your classmates. You are opening the door to jealousy, bullying, maturity, social problems, and other issues etc. etc.

tread carefully.
