For high school math, Saxon will probably work fine (up through Algebra II or so). For grammar - well, I personally hated English grammar, and promptly forgot almost all of it. I had college-level reading and writing skills already, so why bother to learn the theory behind what I already knew? The best way to learn grammar, as it turned out, was actually to study a second language. All those parts of speech that didn't look very valuable before suddenly became essential to know.

(don't, however, waste time on Latin, like I did - choose a more useful language such as Spanish)

I love Teaching Textbooks for math. It comes with a solutions CD.

I also like Easy Grammar. It is simple and easy to understand.

Winston Grammar. I also agree with Theodore, learning another language gives all that grammar info a purpose.
