If you want to become a math teacher at a high school, you will need to do calculus 12

Are you planning on going into Engineering? You need it. It's one of the admission requirements for almost all Universities.

Business? You can. You do need some Calculus knowledge since you do have to take a few Math courses.

Check the course requirements for the major. If you see any calculus courses (i.e Elementary Calculus, Calculus 1, etc.), it would be beneficial to take it in highschool since you'll have a better understanding of the material in University.

If you think you might be stressed out, or might end up with a grade that's not good enough, don't take it since you have to.
