The goalkeeper has all the rights of any other player, plus their special privilege to handle the ball within their own penalty area. This means that goalkeepers can legally take goal kicks, corner kicks, kickoffs, free kicks, penalty kicks, throw-ins, and are required to take a turn during kicks from the penalty mark to determine a winner (a.k.a. shootout) before any team mate may kick a second time.

What are the rules regarding the goalkeeper and the little box in high school soccer?

The "little box" in front of the goal mouth is the goal area. There is no rule governing the goalkeeper and the goal box except that if the keeper is taking a goal kick, the ball must be placed on or within the lines of the goal box to restart play. (Note that the keeper or any of his teammates may take the goal kick - there is no mandate that the keeper take the goal kick.) Following the taking of the goal kick, the ball is considered not to be in play until it crosses out of the associated penalty area, which is the "big box" inside which the defending goalkeeper my use his hands to play the ball according to the Laws of the Game. It is highly unlikely that these rules are modified in high school soccer. It could be fairly said that the sole purpose of the goal area is to define the area from inside which the ball is to be placed in the taking of a goal kick on that restart of play.
