Why do we go to high school?

You go to high school as a step toward learning what you need to know to make your living and be better able to avoid victimization in society. There's plenty that you need to know that's not taught in school, but school is also designed to teach you how to learn on your own.

It's up to you whether you make use of the opportunities of high school or to waste it for some youthful excuse or fantasy about life. Knowledge is power.
