Having actually done some teaching of programming to high school kids, I can attest that Python is a nice language to start with. In particular, Python notebooks are a great way to get your feet wet in programming, and teachers can put together nice "cheat sheets" that are actually executable using the notebooks.

I would stay far away from any compile-link-run environment. Goodness, why inflict that on any beginner when there are such nicer options around.
