A school day can fluctuate from boring to exciting. A teacher also has a very different view from a student. But have you ever noticed how people walk away from school with more than just knowledge? If not, pay more attention to this.

Matthew Horen, a social studies teacher, laughed and then exclaimed that “A school day is never boring, it’s busy never the same from day to day and filled with many opportunities to help people reach their full potential.” So, to Horen, there is no way, to summarize every day because each one is different.

Kids around Perrysburg High School spend much of their time on their phones in and out of class. Most of our views on being here at Perrysburg High School is that we are here because we have to be.

For example, Hayden Madden, a sophomore, sums his school day up in three brief words: “quality nap time.” Madden views school, as you can infer, as boring.

A school is a place where many people find the need to complain where as long as they are in the building it is hard to find their happy place, for the reason that they are flooded with work a lot of the time. However, the students attend to be very social to here.

So does school actually have a meaning under its educational complexion? Have you ever considered maybe school is made to make it so you can handle your regular outside life after you leave high school?

At school, we, learn the core math, the English studies. But we also learn to socialize with many different types of people. No matter what place you decide to be after school is over you is going to have to deal with people.

School gets us ready and prepares us for more than what many people realize.
