Well, you've already taken the first step
in becoming a paleontologist, stating that you wanted to become one.
I'm going to become one as well, (I'm 17 years old.) and you should take
a lot of science classes like Biology, Chemistry and anatomy. These
classes may be hard or easy depending on the teacher but you should never
quit becoming a paleontologist just because the classes are hard.
After high school you should go to a community college and get in a year
or two of geology and college biology and anatomy(But if you can take colleges
courses during the summer in high school, that's even better.). Next
a four year university and take geology and anatomy again and get more
into the paleontological part of geology. Then your undergraduate
year you should take paleontology classes to learn the fundamentals of
paleontology and during your graduate year specialize in a specific field
like the sauropods of Australia. (I'm going to specialize in the carnivorous
dinosaurs of North America, mainly dromeosaurids.
