You should get an education first.
If you wanted to become a monk, study at Buddhist college and acquire useful skills (like translations). It is tough work though and requires many years of commitment.
And to do this, you need to finish high school.

To do this, you need to learn Japanese. Get started in high school. If that's not possible, then it'll have to be in college. To get to college... you need to finish high school.
If your current high school is not meeting your needs, then try to transfer to a different one. If that's not possible, tell your teachers and your counselor. This is because you must finish high school and probably college in order to pursue your dream of practicing science as a Buddhist monk.
It would help if you learned something about Buddhism before making such a commitment to it. Does your school have a library? Go there and read the books about Buddhism. If you really have an interest in science, you would do well to read about science too.
Thanks to the help of generous sponsors (most of them from DharmaWheel), I'm doing a Vajra Armor (Dorje Kotrab) self-retreat this summer. May the merit be yours!
