High School on Resume?

I'm currently a freshman and I was wondering if I should put my high school on my resume. I know this has been beaten like a dead horse on Wall Street oasis but my situation kind of differs from others. I went to the Bronx High School of Science which is very highly ranked nationally and known in the academia world but I'm unsure of how well it's known on the street. I know typically the answer would be to remove it once you get some more experience to fill your resume with but my high school has a pretty wide and supportive alumni network. Would it be worth it to keep my high school on there because of its reputation (assuming it's known on the street and not just by college professors) and alum network?

Do you go to school in the Bronx now? Like Manhattan college or Fordham? Anyway, leave it on there if it's good just for this year, starting sophomore year remove anything related to high school. Most people don't go for internships freshman summer especially at big firms. I was told back in school to enjoy freshman summer and just work any job. But yeah if you're set on something a good hs gpa is fine for now and the SAT/ACT if it's REALLY good can stay on there forever until your first full time job.

Everyone knows Bronx Science. Leave it on for this year if you had notable leadership roles in high school. Take it off after this year.
