Your high school grades don't matter very much, but I'd argue that what you learn from high school matters a lot. Skills like developing good study / note taking habits will be super beneficial in college, but nobody really cares about your high school grades in college, let alone medical school.

High school is an important time to develop good study habits. This will help you get good grades in college. Med schools don't look at your high school transcript. But you will need to get good grades in college in order to apply for medical school. At the medical school I attended, the average GPA is reported to be 3.85, so even one or two B's can hurt your chances of acceptance.

Medical schools will not look at your high school grades. However, it is never too early to form good habits for college, when the grades matter. Now is the time to develop time management, figure out how you study best, and learn to ask for help (in high school from a teacher, in college from professors or tutors).

I would say all grades matter. Shows your dedication and hard work. Don't think that this is overlooked. Shows many traits about a person that is able to stay dedicated and cares about there grades. Even with the the distractions in high school.
