So why don't they consider learning how to use Mathematica in high school,
instead of calculus? Then when they got to college they could concentrate
more on the math.

what students learn in calculus class vs. what is taught..

See this

which suggests that many students who take calculus in high school
not only do not get college credit for it, but the placement
exam puts them into a pre-calculus college class.
