Don't get me wrong; high school is pretty fun, but taking classes that I don't find necessary for my intended career really ticks me off. I'm hoping in college that more personalized classes will mean I'll be more interested. Do you think this will be the case?

I'm with you there. I just started high school and I find it extremely frustrating that I just spent 30 minutes on "health" homework. Also, I don't care about Spanish or Biology. Even though they're "good for your education"

Community College is really post high school. To get the experience, I mean education, go to a University or Institute. You'll find yourself busy as hell but the gratification is well worth your time.

I don't know how relevant this is, as I started attending college 38 years ago, coming from a bigoted, blue collar suburb of Detroit. I was one of the non-popular intelligent students who never got invited to parties. Once I got to college, intelligence was prized and I wasn't the freak bookworm.
But more importantly than my ego and minor snubs I received in high school, the exposure to different ideas and backgrounds I wouldn't trade for anything. All ideas are fodder for growth, and intelligent, caring people will blossom in those lucky circumstances.
