Why You Should Stay in School

When you hear the word “school” during a conversation, you may think of several unpleasant things. Thoughts of endless homework, long days of classes, and to-do lists of activities and sports that can overwhelm you. With so much pressure to get good grades and to go to college, daily life can become grueling. You may wonder if your efforts in school are worth the stress. When the going gets tough, take the time to remind yourself that there are many reasons why getting a good education is important.

     Your journey through school can help you discover more about your personal career interests. Beginning in kindergarten, teachers tend to ask you about your dream job. You may find your love of a certain subject, such as coding or drawing, through the experience of these classes and activities. When you go to high school, you may gravitate towards that same subject and find a passion that can last throughout University, possibly the rest of your life. It’s okay if you still havent found something that you like more than other subjects; sometimes you can narrow your list of possible careers by discovering what you don’t like.

   School prepares you not only for your future career but for the real world. You learn about handling stress, managing your time, and prioritizing your homework. Your teachers give homework to help you learn about meeting deadlines while concentrating on specific assignments and activities. Making a study schedule and creating a supportive group of friends who want to help each other succeed can help you stay accountable. Discipline and hard work go a long way toward achieving success.

     Working with your classmates is one great way that school can help you. You develop networking and social skills. You already have a great support system with your fellow students who are usualy going through something similar academically. You may have a better understanding of certain subjects, and can help others who may, in turn, be able to help you in different areas. Most importantly, some of these friendships have the potential to last for a lifetime.

    You could find yourself becoming involved in extracurricular activities. You may end up loving dance/cheerleading, soccer, mathletics, e-sports, and countless other hobbies. Some are able to discover their passions through extracurriculars. School gives you the time and freedom to discover them for yourself.

      Throughout your journey, remember that you are never alone. If you feel stressed, do not be afraid to reach out to your parents, a favorite teacher, or a trusted person in your life for guidance. There’s a great chance that person can help you along the way. Going to school is important in preparing yourself for life’s successes and challenges. Staying in school allows you to learn and develop basic coping skills. With a great support system, a disciplined approach to work, and the freedom to explore your interests, you set yourself up for future success in your life.
