The answer is generally 16. Dropping out seems like a good idea and in your mind it probably will be for a few years of fun. Once you turn like 19 or 20 you're like WTF did I do, I'm stuck working crap dead end jobs and it's a lifelong never ending cycle all because of one stupid mistake.
I have some friends that made this decision and they're all pill heads who are 25+ with no employment. The path you choose is in your hands, choose wisely.
Even if you don't have money for college, there's so much financial aid out there you would be surprised, I have some friends where the college actually payed them to attend since they were low income.
All I'm saying is if you drop out (I'm serious) you better get used to saying "fries with that" bottom line.

What is the legal age at which a person can drop out of school in Texas?
According to the Texas Education Agency, a person cannot drop out of school in the state until the age of 18. However, there are some exceptions to this rule.
Students are not required to attend public school in Texas if they are going to private or parochial schools. Home-schooled students are also exempt. Seventeen-year-olds are allowed to leave school if they are enrolled in or have successfully completed a GED program. If students are 16 and have been identified by the court as truants, they are allowed to enroll in GED programs, as well. Students who are 17 when they receive their high school diplomas are not forced to stay in school.
