Last updated March 7, 2024

School. It's that glorious mix of social and educational encounters that happens every weekday for thirteen years. For the most part, your childhood is spent in school. If you have to be there– and federal laws say you do– you might as well have a great time! Here are the top 5 reasons why going to school every day is important.

You might earn a perfect attendance award

Being at school every day means fighting through the days when you have the blahs, the days when you have tests but didn't study, and sometimes even the days when all you want to do is curl up with a blanket and Netflix. Being in class everyday says a lot about your commitment to education and your belief that showing up is important. 

What about your friends?

School wouldn't be the same without friends. Good friends are your most loyal fan club members, there to support you when you try out for cheerleading or take the field in your first game. They listen to you go on and on about the joys of chemical reactions or help you make campaign signs for your race for student body president. And when you're home sick with the flu, your friends take notes for you so you don't fall behind in math class. Friends for the win! 

We've got spirit, yes we do!

There is nothing like school spirit. Not only do you think your school is the best place in the entire universe, you want others to agree with you. From pep rallies to spirit days to school events, your school knows how to turn up. Being a part of that excitement and pride is more than enough of a reason to show up every day for school. 

You're preparing for life

It might not seem like school is preparing you for life but it totally is. No, you might not need to know the exact calculations of pi, the three types of rocks, or even that there are eight parts of speech when you're an adult, but you're learning how to show up, work hard, and apply what you've learned. These are definitely skills that will serve you in college and the workforce. Your thirteen years of school are helping you master these skills!

School is so much fun!

School can be fun. Learning new things is fun. You're learning from your teachers, your classmates, and the entire school staff. When it's all said and done, you'll graduate from high school with a lot of great memories of all the fun times you had in school.
