Sorry if it's in the previous 4 pages, but do you have an after school job? If not, this is GREAT for improving your social abilities.
The key thing your doing wrong is pointing the finger at yourself too much and not other people.
I agree with pretty much what you have said, except that you should tailor what you are good at to other people. Thats just a higher order version of the Carnegie solution, and while it may not make other people think you are creepy and a fake, it will make you unhappy over time.

Focusing on grades or social interaction in high school are equally worthless.
High school is perhaps the single most useless time of our lives and either ironically or cruelly the level of immaturity we all suffer through at that age make it all seem so much more important than it is.
Trust me, high school is worthless. Unless you plan on being a lifelong townie or peaking at 18 it's really a period of your life that will barely qualify as a footnote.
For the most part college is much the same.
You could get move on quicker by dropping out, getting that GED at 16 and heading off to college or trade school ASAP if either of those are your eventual plan.
High school is a waste. The whole public education thing could be condensed into half as many years considering how many hours each year are thrown away from 1st grade all the way to your senior year.
