2. Make friends with your teachers 👩🏫
Believe it or not, teachers are just normal human beings, who want their jobs to be fun too!
Teachers don’t usually enjoy shouting at students or making lessons boring, but it’s up to you as students to make your teachers feel like:
- You’re genuinely interested in what they’re saying 👂
- You’ll listen to them and follow the school rules 😇
- You won’t make an effort to embarrass or hurt them 😟

Making an effort to get to know your teachers can make a huge difference in making school more fun.
Making friends with your teachers can help you to:

Generally teachers love it when students take an interest in them, their work, and the topics they teach!
So, don’t be shy—chat with your teachers, and you might find learning becomes even better!
3. Find subjects you really enjoy 😍
Discovering subjects you genuinely enjoy can turn school into a more exciting and enjoyable experience.
When you find something you’re passionate about, learning becomes less of a chore and more like an adventure.
Whether it’s science, art, or sports, diving into subjects that capture your interest can make each lesson feel like a new opportunity to explore and grow.
Enjoying what you study not only makes you more motivated to get involved in class but also helps you remember and understand the material better.
Finding subjects you enjoy adds a sense of fulfillment and joy to your school journey, transforming the entire learning process into something you look forward to every day.
4. Make the boring subjects more interesting ✨
You can’t always choose what subjects you’re asked to study, which can make it really difficult if you’re given subjects you find difficult or boring.
However, making those dull subjects more fun is really important for keeping school enjoyable for you!
When you find creative and enjoyable ways to study them, like researching interesting facts, turning them into games or incorporating humor, it not only makes the process more interesting but also helps you remember information better.
Adding a bit of fun to less exciting subjects can transform your perspective, making learning them feel more rewarding.
Making boring subjects more interesting helps you overcome challenges, and also helps you to feel more positive about school overall.
5. Make studying for exams more fun 🤹♀️
Making studying for exams more fun is important because it helps you remember things better and makes learning more enjoyable!
Instead of just reading from a book, you can turn studying into a game or use colors to make your notes more interesting. Plus, when you enjoy studying, it helps you stay focused and motivated, making school a happier experience overall.
When you have fun while studying, it makes the whole process easier and less stressful. It’s turns a chore into something exciting!
In our article How to study for exams 🤓 we explain ways that you can make studying more fun, by adding fun things to studying such as:
- dance routines
- role play
- silliness/things that make you laugh (maybe even rude things)
6. Show off your personality with your school belongings 🎒
When your belongings reflect who you are, it’s like bringing a bit of your unique self to school each day.
Doing things like:
- personalizing your rucksack
- decorating notebooks
- buying cool stationary
- using hair accessories to show your personality
- getting a school uniform that makes you feel confident
Showing off your personality with your school belongings creates a positive and uplifting atmosphere.
It helps you express yourself, but also lets others see your interests and style.
Adding a personal touch to your school belongings makes school feel more like your own space, making it more enjoyable and comfortable.
7. Celebrate small wins 🏆
Celebrating small wins in school is important because it makes learning more enjoyable and can help to boost your confidence. 👐
When you achieve something, even if it’s small, it’s like a little victory.
You could celebrate things like:
- getting a good grade on a quiz
- finishing a project
- learning a new skill
- understanding parts of the lessons
- getting work done on time
- feeling proud of work you’ve done
When you celebrate these moments, it makes you feel proud and motivated to keep going!
Celebrating small wins turns school into a place where you not only learn but also have fun by acknowledging your accomplishments.
Plus, celebrating with friends and teachers adds a positive vibe to your school experience, making it more exciting and rewarding overall!
8. Find a career path to motivate you 💪
When you figure out what jobs you want to do in the future, it can make school a lot more fun. Knowing where you’re headed gives each lesson a special meaning because it’s helping you reach your goals.
Learning becomes more interesting when you know what career path you want to try, because you can see how it connects to what you want to do when you grow up.
Having a career path in mind makes school feel exciting and important, turning it into an adventure where you’re preparing for the awesome job you dream of having.
9. Get comfortable with failing 👎👍
A lot of the time, school can make failure seem terrifying. However, failure is the best way to learn!
Did you know that JK Rowling (author of the Harry Potter series), failed to get her book published 12 times, before someone agreed to publish it? 🪄🧹
Imagine if she’d given up after failing just once, or even 11 times! 🤷♀️
There would be no Harry Potter! 😱🧙♂️🪄
How many times would you retry something if you failed? ⌚
Would you redo a test after failing it 12 times? 🔁
The more you feel good about failing, the more likely you are to try again, and succeed. 🏆💖
When we embrace the idea that it’s okay not to get everything right the first time, school becomes less stressful and more enjoyable.
Instead of feeling discouraged, see failures as opportunities to learn, improve, and try again. This makes the whole school experience more fun and exciting, turning each setback into a chance to become even better.
10. Get some sleep! 🛌
Let’s be honest, if you’ve stayed up all night, school probably isn’t going to be fun.
Young people especially need more sleep — according to experts, most teens need about 8 to 10 hours of sleep each night!
If you’re not getting enough sleep, try and add some more Zs to your routine, to make school more enjoyable! 😴
