16 Unusual Things At Schools That Are Normal In Some Places

#10 is pretty cool.

Most students arrive at school in the morning, books in backpacks, uniforms all clean and nice, then return home in the afternoon with an armful of homework. They come back the next day and do the same things they did yesterday.

This is what comes to mind for many of us when we think of schools. Sometimes people forget that the way they do things in their country isn’t necessarily the way it’s done everywhere else. In fact, some schools are a little different than we expect.

1. A school under a bridge in New Delhi

2. Student can stay in school for as long as 16 hours in South Korea

3. Unisex school uniforms in some schools in Japan

4. A school on a boat in Bangladesh

5. Dutch students begin going to school at age four

6. You’re not required to wear shoes in Oceanic schools.

7. Boys wear kilts in some school in Scotland

8. After a series of calamities, students are asked to wear protective headgear in Tokyo

9. Unusual way to commune in India

10. A cat-shaped school in Germany.

11. Students in Carpe Diem schools in Ohio where study in cubicles to prepare them in their workplace in the future.

12. First day of school is celebrated in Russia like a holiday

13. There are countries that offer kindergarten outside.

14. Students need to travel via a helicopter in the Arctic tundra

15. There’s a school in Brooklyn that doesn’t have a test and homework

16. “Study Zones” in a Danish school

A school is a place where students learn and meet new friends. The area and structure don’t have to be the same in every country just as long as they can be a good environment for learning.

While there are many types of schools around the world, education is important and we should remember not to take it for granted.
