Why Is School Important?

Knowledge is power

School is the basic foundation of knowledge being imparted to a child. It gives a chance to children to acquire knowledge on various fields of education, such as people, literature, history, mathematics, politics, and other numerous subjects. By obtaining knowledge, a person is in a better position to help other people

A ladder to college

Unless you complete your school education, a student cannot get himself/herself enrolled into a college. College is highly significant to succeed and achieve his/her dreams. With higher education, one can get a good job and lead a better life. Without academic career, one will not be able to make a living for oneself.

Allows it to socialize

Attending school gives you a chance to meet new children of one’s age. While some remain only classmates, some get close only to become good friends for many years or even lifetime. Conversely, if one stays at home all day long, one will probably not be able to meet many such people of one’s age. Meeting new people and socializing also broadens one’s parameters of knowledge. Thus, if one wants to lead a good social life, it is best to attend school.

Keeps you engrossed

Unless one is much occupied with various tasks, staying without work during the day can be really boring and tiresome.  Attending school not only will it keep you active, it will also help you learn other useful skills. Though one might enjoy staying unoccupied for the first few days or a month, after some time, it will get boring and kill you. Thus, attend school to be a happy, successful person.

Overall development

School does not mean just learning the events given in a history chapter or solving tough mathematical problems or reciting poems and sonnets. School is the first stepping stone in the life of a child, wherein he/she learns a lot more than just rote learning. Developing hobbies, refining them, learning basic etiquettes, getting skilled at multi tasking, developing social skills are some of the many things that a school equips a child with.

Especially if we look at the current trend in our country, international schools are coming up with lot more opportunity for children where the definition of education is getting changed into another level. The internal and external development of a student is being ensured by such international schools in India to grow and nurture.
