I was going to suggest a GED and early admission into college and such here (as others have, and that's a potential path I wish I knew about when I was your age), but there's another good option here.

Continue to slog through school (and that was no fun in my era, and has likely only become more of a slog) and get into every AP and into every local college class you can, and look to get an LLC and start up your own business and your own products. See if you're ready to operate a small business or a startup entirely on your own, or if you prefer to follow a, um, more traditional educational and career and corporate path.

If you work through the LLC and the AP and the college classes and particularly work with the local school authorities around this, you might be able to achieve a "reduced sentence" for your time in high school, too. Stranger things have happened.
