Hey i'm 17 and am in about the same situation... trying to do well in school while also managing my landscape business without getting totally stressed out. the best time for school is now when you still younge not 10 or 15 years down the road when your relize that you need some more educ. because you may not be feeling very successfull in life. My view is that if i can do well in school then i will have a better chance of doing well in my landscape career. I just try my best to provide professional, dependable landscape services while also being in high school. some day i'm just too busy with home work that i don't have enough time to go out and wack out a few lawn especialy now that it gets dark so early. Just try your best.
