School. An institution where students want to achieve an education in order to compete for jobs in the global market. An academy where scholars acquire knowledge to build their intelligence in life. No matter how people define the meaning of school, they can all agree that an epitomic school environment is the principal factor that they can learn the materials best. No one prefers a school that distracts them from their education: negative reasons such as gossips, drugs, gangs, and bullying. That is why an ideal school experience usually consists of positive surroundings and internal motivation.
A positive neighborhood will increasingly boost the student’s ability to stay in school and attain the learning materials. For instance, a person who is enclosed with drugs or alcohol has a negative correlation to the number of dropouts in high school. According to research, “Students who drink or use drugs frequently are up to five times more likely than their peers to drop out of high school” (Hardcastle, “Marijuana Use”). For students who come from a drugs or alcohol-related environment, these addictive substances cause them to hallucinate and not concentrate on the tasks at hand. When attending school, they are less likely to focus and retain the information, thus making them unlikely to want to go to school every day and feel exhausted and instead drop out and work in order to buy enough drugs or alcohol to satisfy their needs. That is why a healthy environment without these detrimental stimulants can help students stay in school, play in school, and graduate successfully.
Positive outside influences are not the only reasons why students want to experience school every day; internal motivation also push students to obtain the best school experience.
