TS2 Sim doing homework

A Sim doing their homework.

School is where children and teenagers attend to get education during those life stages. School appears in all of The Sims series, except in The Sims Castaway Stories. The school bus takes children and teens to and from school. In the first two games and The Sims 4, the school is located off-screen and is not visible to the player, just like careers. In The Sims 3, the school is a rabbit hole building.

Children and teenagers attend school on weekdays and are free from it during weekends (expect for The Sims, in which weekends don't exist). School days usually last for around 4 to 7 hours, depending on the game. Children in school will have grades, that work similarly to job performance of careers. Grades can be boosted by doing various forms of activities during free time. These include studying from books, completing tasks, and raising skills. Sims will get homework after school days, and failing to complete them generally results in bad grades. In The Sims 3 and The Sims 4, players can also assign tasks for the Sim to do during school. They vary from sleeping in classes, working harder than usual, or just gaining more friends.

Other forms education alongside normal schools exist for children and teenagers to attend. In The Sims, children whose grades linger at F for several consecutive days are first given a warning, then banished to military school. In The Sims 2, Sims can attend private school if they have a minimum grade of C. In The Sims 3: Generations, children and teens can be sent to a boarding school and take a class after school.
