I do think classes like AP computer science have their place in high school as a vocational elective. I took a computer programming class in high school and it was a great starting point for me. I went to college ready to start my CS degree.
However not everyone needs to be a full-time software developer, but imo everyone should graduate high school able to use programming as a tool. Math and science classes are the obvious place to teach this and there's no reason to wait until high school.
