Student version in high schools

    I used the student version of Mathematica in high school and found that it
 was too powerful for most students.  Most of the things that I would need to
do as a high school student could be done better and simpler with a TI graphing
calculator (which many schools now require).  As I got into my junior year of
college I still haven't run across a problem where the student version of 
Mathematica couldn't handle in a reasonable period of time.  I am a physics
engineering major so I am not a slouch in math either.
    My question is what did I miss?  What things did everyone else do in high
school that I didn't do?  Or was everyone else using a better (less crippled)
program?  I guess my question is what is it even used for in high schools
anyway?
