It's been the case for the last 40 years that if you mention jazz to anybody in high school they'll look at you funny, but jazz is not dead.
You are dealing with an enclosed society of high schoolers who like you say listen largely to boy bands, punk and rap; this is not a good sample to make judgements about the overall direction of music. If because they dont like rock that means rock is dead, than classical and jazz, as well as every type of ethnic music, is dead too. Listen to what you want, and be assured that as long as there are people like you, it will survive, who cares about how popular it is.
