I'm gonna say that high school in America, as I can't speak for other countries, is beyond useless. I truly think the only courses that matter are those you know you'll appreciate for a future career, government so you're prepared for some legal stuff, economics so you know whats going on with your money when, and foods classes, so if you're like me you can learn to cook something other than noodles and chicken (wow, look at how stereotypical that sounded XD).
But it all honesty, I think most courses don't apply and won't apply in life. I honestly think they're really useless. Like besides future math teachers, who really needs to know how to find the measurement of a certain angle of an triangle? Besides future English scholars, who needs to know about "A Modest Proposal" and read Frankenstein? Just gonna say, most of what we use is only applied in said class, for a certain test/quiz, and forgetten.
I think classes need to be structured so that you go to public high school when you no damn clue, or are confused, as to what you want to do in life. For the rest of us, who know and have known what we wanted since we were children, structure it so it goes with our future career path and not make us waste time in classes that don't matter, like calculus for your future writers, AP-English classes for kids who'd rather be out working with cars, and gym class for your kids who get damn near depressd with the very idea of the class. But those are my honest opinions. Yours?

I'm sure that if they paid students for going to school... paid more for higher grades... paid for extracurricular activities, you would see far more students taking it seriously... regardless of what career path they choose.0
