Classes to take if interested in computer science/engineering

Math, particularly anything involving discrete math and calculus. Physics or more specifically the electrical side of physics. And if there's any basic electronics courses, take that too.

 

Otherwise if you declare your major in college, they'll usually give you a list of classes you have to take anyway.

Every level of calculus, Semiconductor physics and calculus based physics, some classes are only algebra based. Programming such as C++

Learn a programming language if you want to go into computer science. It will give you a good idea of you like it or not. Calculus and physics will give you a good idea of you are cut out for enginerring. Computer science requires mostly just math.

Id take a CS classes to start with. Also math all the way up to Calc 4 is recommended. I'm taking intro to Java next semester

You know, I feel embarrassed I didn't mention programming classes.

To be fair, if they comprehend calc 4 before doing anything related to computer science, they're well on their way

As others have said, math and computer science related courses are recommended. Also CS is a really vast field so at some point you'll have or rather want to pick what interests you more within CS (basically networking, graphics, ai, theoretical, etc. and yes I'm aware that all of those have overlap to some extent but that's not my point).

If you can do a tech school or vocation program at your high school, see what they have. Even a basic building PC class is good.
