High school preparation for engineering

What high school electives are most important to help a student
interested in engineering?
Probably the most important classes are upper-level math classes.
If your school offers calculus, by all means take it. Engineering is a math
based subject. Physic and chemistry are also basic science classes that will
apply to engineering. One class I wish I had taken in high school was typing.
Today's engineer will use a computer and the need to know typing is needed as
well. On that same line, learn all you can about computers as well.
