Jacob Roloff never finished school!

In his newly released book, Out To See, the former Little People Star revealed he was expelled from high school, RadarOnline.com has learned.

While Jacob doesn't specify the reason for his expulsion at Faith Bible High School, he says it gave him a whole new perspective on life that led to his decision to leave school early.

"When I got expelled from Faith Bible, I did not fall into a pit of what-ifs—I simply enjoyed my early summer. When I found myself unable to be contented by a high school that had no interest in educating me, I dropped out and continued my life as it was naturally forming. Never once have I looked back on these events, or any others, and regretted their happening. Instead I have been grateful that my answer to these realities has brought me to this pleasant present, and I only hope I maintain this course."

Jacob added that he found himself usually "isolated" in high school due to his reality star status, which made it harder for him to attend school.

"In high school, I had only two romantic relationships, both rather short-lived. The first was innocent enough, but were complete opposites," Jacob admitted. "The second had its bright spots, but was ultimately toxic for us both. By then it was junior year, and I had been psychologically checked out of school for years. Not of disinterest in learning, but of scarce opportunity to do so in a public school with most teachers seemingly disinterested in teaching. There was only one teacher that I actually liked, but he later became involved in scandalous affairs on school grounds, consequently losing his position and going to prison."

"After losing the teacher to the only two classes I went to, I left my high school to finish what I felt was an increasingly pestuous stage of compulsory learning, by getting a GED instead," he continued. "I passed the exam with flying colors and then began internally exploring what I wanted in life."

It was during this period that he met his now fiancee, Isabelle Rock.

"During this time, I finally re-connected with a longtime friend from highschool, Izzy, who was in the class above mine. The few times we did converse, I was trying to figure out why she was talking to me, because she assumed norms of public school said that she shouldn't be: she was a grade up, beautiful and popular, and I was the new kid, duly isolated from my reputation of being on TV. After all, it turned out that we weren't so different. She happened to ride my bus on Wednesdays, and so I saw her then, too. She would always sit beside me, and soon from this connection we began texting intermittently and eventually, every day."

Shortly after Jacob turned 18, he revealed that he moved in with Rock following a few short months of dating.

"We have been virtually inseparable in the four years since, and I'm eager for a lifetime more."

As Radar previously reported, Jacob slammed his parents for forcing him on the show at a young age.

Two years prior, he shocked fans when he took to Twitter to claim he was “getting f**ked out of money" from the show.

After a years-long feud, Jacob reconciled with his famous family, and now remains close to the clan despite their differences.
