A place a child or teenager is sent to learn skills that are as useful as they choose to make them later on in life. It is highly useful, but incredibly underappreciated by the majority of those of school age, particularly Americans. It is also a place where these same students will be told repeatedly that 'These are the best days of your life.' They will be told that until they are old enough to realize that nobody who wasn't rich, brilliant, or an exceptional athlete in a highly competitive school would EVER go back to their high school years given the opportunity.
When I got stationed in South Korea, I realized that if I'd studied as hard as the locals in school, I could have made plenty of money and helped many people without ever joining the Army at all!

school is a place for learning where you learn all sorts of different things and lots of people think 'when will i ever use this information in my life? why are they teaching this?' and the truth is that they don't know if or when you will use it so they teach it to you, just in case. at school you learn everything informational and technical you will ever need to know (or at least a basis) and this may seem like torture but it will really help you in life. you also get to meet people, find out what other people are like, find out what you are like. not only do you learn everything informational/technical, you also get a social understanding of life/friendship/relationships. you also fill up time in the day. yes you do wake up early in the morning but what else would you be doing? (ok sleeping, but what about when you wake up?) you might say 'going out with friends', but without school, you probably would never have met these people! so STOP bagging school and learn to appreciate it for what it is and appreciate how lucky you are to have it, because lots of kids all around the world can only dream of going to school.
'what are you doing today?'

'going out with friends'

'cool. where do you know these people from?'

'school, where else?'

A place that most people whine and complain about to no end. It's where we socialize and get prepared for the real world. It's where we make friends so we don't have to spend our life alone. Although not everything we learn there is important, a lot of it is. Plus, learning unnecessary things is still developing your thinking and understanding skills. School is what prevents our brains from turning to mush, and also where we can get away from our annoying parents and be with friends for about 7 hours a day.
Ryan: I hate school. We spend most of our childhood to teenage life sitting in a desk being forced to abide by teachers' rules and wasting our time learning pointless things.

Amanda: Suck it up. School is where we learn to think and make friends. Don't be so negative.

An institution where children under 18 learn. Most common subjects in school include mathematics, science, social studies, english, reading, gym, and possibly a gifted program.

School is supposed to be an educational place, and is aimed towards teaching, learning, and fun. Most jobs require a full schooling, meaning from Grade K- Grade 12. Also known as 'elementary, middle, and high school'. See education
Shirley went to school everyday so she could learn.
