Yeah, I had a 90% average in grade 12, and generally pretty good grades in the rest of high school, mostly around the 80-95% range from what I remember, just a couples 70s. Anything that had a clear right or wrong answer, especially if there wasn't too much memorization involved, I did great, so 90-95% for math, physics and chemistry.
There was some family pressure but I was generally able to get interested in most of my classes. If I was going to be forced to sit in a classroom, I might as well explore the ideas being presented to me. It's not like I have much interest in chit chat with the guy next to me.
Only exception was programming class where we were sitting at computers and most people (myself included) were playing online games when the teacher wasn't looking (he generally wasn't). Those were my worst grades.
When the structure of high school transitioned to the more independent studying of university is when I struggled.
