In this day and age, employers are looking to hire "drop outs".
From my own experience, my younger brother dropped out of school in Grade 9. He is now 19, all of his friends are graduated, and he is kicking himself in the a** for not finishing school as he can not get a "good" steady job to support himself.
I hardly graduated, but I got my self together and managed to do it by taking some courses as "Learn at Home" courses and working hard. I wouldn't be where I am today if I didn't graduate High School, I may not have a University education as of now, but High School is something that really matters.
Please, for your own future, put your nose to the grindstone and graduate whether it is homeschooling or not.
ETD: The "homeschooling" I did was more so, go see a teacher in the program once a day or a few times a week, depending on the help you needed, do your work on the computer, the teachers had a system set up that you could "chat" with them and also send in your work. It was quite neat, "Learn @ Home". But I was doing this on the side to get my extra credits while STILL going to school every day.
