    I'm really starting to think that high school might be pointless.

    If high school students are capable of being successful in college level coursework then high school as a means of "preparing kids for college" is either ineffective or so effective that it is doing it in 1-2 years rather than 4 years.

    Well, there's no question in my mind that there are some (maybe many) high school kids who are actually more gifted than those a few years older who are in college. By "gifted" I mean smart and, perhaps more importantly, motivated. We all know that there are plenty of college kids who are reasonably intelligent but quite apathetic at the same time. They drone on and on getting average grades at best, having no real goals, etc. They will get passed by a motivated high school student who is perhaps no smarter but is just willing to study harder. I think those kids should have more opportunities to expand academically. Frequently the opportunities do exist but they're not discussed or otherwise shown to be options.
