Oh, college, hands down, is superior. Keep in mind, of course, that most people are more mature and also that the work is tougher and is not lowest common denominator. Also, High School (to an extent) is mandatory, regardless of ability, whereas college (well, above a certain level) requires that you actually work to get in, or work to stay in. Hence you're dealing with people who are (generally) more with it intellectually because they have to be.
There is a lot of fun in college (I certainly did my share of partying), but it is also the place to get yourself in gear and figure out, fundamentally, what you want your life to be like. That's kind of a powerful, neat thing, and it can be a little scary.
One piece of wholly unsolicited advice about college - take at least one class per year that is totally unrelated to your field of study. Something hard. Something weird. Something that might not be the greatest thing for your GPA. And go to class, apply yourself, there, just like you do in your field of study. You might find you like this other thing. You might find that your assumptions about yourself, or about this unexpected area of study were incorrect. Or maybe that they were correct. But you will never know until you try.
High School, if you are set on going to college, is a way to clear your basic college requirements. What are those?
* Freshman Comp (this is English 101)
* basic American or European History
* first-year Biology or Physics or Chemistry
* foreign language
* first-year Calculus
Yeah, that's hard stuff, but if you clear it in High School, you do it for free, and then you can spend your time and money in college on things that are more of interest to you (plus your danger class, like I mentioned above). Clear these classes by taking AP if you can in High School. If you can't get into AP, take the hardest High School classes you can. College will not feel as hard if you apply yourself in High School.
BTW, my danger classes were -
Freshman year: German Literature
Sophomore year: Botany
Junior year: Creative Writing
Senior year: Film Interpretation
