I was 16 when I was a senior and I dated a 14 year old freshman. As long as your potential partner is mature and independent enough, it can work.2

When you say "work out" you mean get married and long term? That rarely happens with HS relationships which is why there's a special term for it- high school sweethearts. Most people don't end up marrying the girl/boy they dated in HS.
I don't want to discourage you, but I don't want to lie to you either. You may well grow apart. She'll still be at HS while you're at college. One or the other of you might get frustrated not being able to spend time with each other. You might have different interests.
Depending on where you live, consent plays a role in this as well. Correct me if I'm wrong, but once you turn 18 you will not be able to engage in sexual activity until she is older. I assume she's about 14-15 currently. If the age of consent is 16 that might not be an issue if she turns 16 when you turn 18. But if it is, that's something else to keep in mind.
I say go for it. There are all sorts of stories where two people who were unlikely to end up together- for whatever reason- ended up together. I don't know how it'll work out and nobody else here does either. I don't know you or her. You may be very mature well rounded people and this might work great.3
