What's a more Professional or proper way to say this?
If one drops out of school... the correct word is. I'm looking for "drop out". Thanks!
What I mean was the was looking for a synonym of "drop out". The phrase I'm thinking is "I want to drop out of school."

'Drop out of school' is acceptable, but if you want a synonym, you could say 'quit school'. Just don't do it yourself.

No, it's better to say I am looking to drop out of schools. Another meaning would be I am looking for dropouts to urge them to go back to school
Hope this helps

Could you give more context, please? For most usages, "drop out of school" is perfectly proper.
Edit: for that usage, your sentence is perfectly proper.
But dropping out of school is neither proper nor professional. You would be giving yourself a much more difficult life than need be. (I spent many years working with poor people, most of them women and most dropouts.)
