I had been debating with someone about a certain sentence, and whether it was grammatically correct or not. This is it:
Will the boy in the blue shirt be finished the tenth grade by the end of the year?

I don't think that is correct, rather it should look like this:
Will the boy in the blue shirt be finished WITH the tenth grade by the end of the year?

What are your thoughts on this? Are you able to not use 'with'? Also, if you use 'with', why?

Thank you!

Your sentence is grammatically fine.

It could also be " Will the boy in the blue shirt have finished the tenth grade by the end of the year?", which is perhaps more usual.
