children never get to make the final decision on which parent is the one where they will resided. However the courts will consider the age, maturity and intelligence of the child in determining what degree of consideration will be given to the child's desires. Being 16 is a tough time for all teenagers and often very tense between the child and the parents. It may be that you will be running from what seems to be a unmanagable living arrangment to a different one that might be worse in the long term. You should identify why you cannot find a way to success here in school, before any move takes place. You should also sit down with your mother and have a mature conversations to identify what concerns you have and ask her what her issues are with you. Try to address them. Once you are on good, or better terms, then it is healthy to determine if you should move. Make both of your parents a part of your decision making. Be a team and do what is best for you.
