  1. I think a perfect school would have many physical things to do. For example a pool, a soccer field, a football field, and tennis courts would make kids so much more active. At recess we could play 2 on 2 tennis or play football with each other. It would bring all the children together as a community.

    1. If I could build the perfect school it would be abundant in resources; in all subjects, I would make class time shorter by 15 minutes so our brains don’t get over loaded and use the extra time to start school later so students can get better sleep, I would go back like the 70’s and make an open concept just with more walls, I would hire more teachers so we have more one on one learning, I would also have more high school majors courses such as aviation, welding ect, in one school, I would make the population of the school larger so that the social side of the learning would improve in students , by doing that also more activities can happen due to the population of the school. All this in my opinion would make a better and great school.

      1. I would build a school with a huge gym with a variety of equipment. There should be more hands on activities with newer technology and different teachers according to their strengths. There should big classes with teachers with assistants to help individuals. Also there could be different units to help students with day to day life.

    2. i think the perfect school would have teachers always encouraging their students.i also think that kids should be able to interact with their technology at school, like working on a computer because for some students its easier. i also think that we should have gym everyday because it helps the students get more exercise .

    3. It would have proper air conditioning an heating, nice washrooms, with a massive indoor pool and the school is actually in a dome where the weather is nice all the time, bigger classrooms… ooo maybe like Hogwarts but not as dark inside or as dangerous…and just cats everywhere

    4. i wounld make the school look like a old castle, on the out side then a 40 by 40 foot classroom for each class the smaller classon the inside wont change the bigger class would have a 50 by 50 foot. to help with learing a huge new library inside and computer room, and for gym a in door simming pool, and all new stuff for gym. new play ground stuff for the little kids. i wound put in a cafeateria in the school so friends in different classes cound eat and talk togetheir

  2. If I could design and run a perfect school I would have more sports tournaments like soccer and hockey. I would also be able to watch hockey and sports it class.

  3. If i could build the perfect school it would be similar to Hogwarts. The school grounds and the inside and outside of the school would be and exact replica to Hogwarts.

  4. If i were to build a perfect school it would have access to a lot of different type of facilities ie; pools, gyms, art centres, and labs that would offer a variety of learning opertunities for students. it would encourage creative learning and many different types of learning through multiple teniques. it would definitely have a more artistic or creative learning environment that would make many diferent kinds of people more comfortable so that they can learn better and easier.

  5. If I could design the perfect school, I would introduce more smart boards, ergonomic furniture, a less ghetto school, air conditioning, new textbooks, better computers, and more options for classes.

  6. A perfect school in terms of structural characteristics would be a school with a nicer cafeteria, hallways, nicer computer labs, a more accessible library, better quality science equipment and materials, A/C and Heater.

  7. A perfect school would have a/c, a nice football field, good size gym, better bathrooms that OP, a pool, hardwood floors, and many more.

  8. If i would build a perfect school, it would have a soccer field, football field, 3 to 4 gyms, a pool, a huge weight room, great computer labs, smartboards in every class room, good air/heat conditioning, the best teachers, the best food, and a track and field area.

  9. a perfect school for me would be a big school with a HUGE variety of courses and the teachers would be chill – not get mad if we come late etc. also the teachers would have to help a bit more for the kids who need help

  10. If I were to make a perfect school there would be a big library with a great selection of books also I would put in a study area so you could study for upcoming tests.I would also put in a big psychical education area so everyone who enjoys gym can have a big gym to go to. Also I would make sure to have a big art room for everyone who enjoys art could have the big area they always wanted.The last thing I would want in the perfect school is to have a recreation center with a swimming pool and other fun activity

  11. If I had the opportunity to establish an “ideal” educational institution, I would include all aspects that would help and engage students towards learning. I would offer all sorts of classes that would help students learn about themselves and what career they would like to pursue in the future. This would result in fewer students taking the “victory lap”. I would offer “study rooms/quiet areas” that would be set up for students to focus on work, such a library. However, along with teachers if students seek help for their studies. There would be personal management classes for students to learn to become independent. Additionally, last but not least provide the schools with teachers who would actually teach and not just regurgitate information to students. All in all, that is my view on having an “ideal” educational institution learning environment.

  12. Well first of all there would be my wonderful throne room made out of diamonds, platinum, and gold. We would have great diamond, platinum, gold class rooms and if you get a question right or wrong you get a million dollars. The teachers would be nice and know karate for absolutely no reason and we would have great sports teams that are way too OP. Pirate Ninjas.

  13. my perfect school would have a sports field and grass outside. Also it would have a study room with 15 computers, it would have a big gym and a pool. lots of clubs (for example glee, drama, sports, swimming). Also lots of classrooms

  14. i think a perfect school, for me would be one were everyone was treated equally. and i mean everyone. for a building idea id say hogwarts. and then we could go through closets like in narinia into the classrooms. and there would be a camp half blood. 🙂 ( percy jackson)

  15. I think the perfect school would have purchased all the resources a student needs to succeed, like books, technology, gym equipment. A perfect school would also have accepting teachers and students, but you cant buy “nice people” haha

  16. Very modern rooms with comfortable chairs and working areas. More technology such as ipads, smartboards, and laptops in class. More windows and bright colours to help uplift moods instead of having schools look plain, boring, and depressing

  17. My school would have a bigger gym , a hockey team , a track field in our school, air conditioning, bigger classrooms,bigger computer lab, better basket ball nets outside ,a dodge ball team, chess team and a large supply of equipment for gym.

  18. The school would be rich with different kinds of technology, and the building itself would be taken care of and not in poor condition.

  19. The school will be big. It wIll have art rooms they will do paintings. It will have fish rooms for looking , feeding fishes and the children will studie fish. The school can have cafeteria to eat lunch.

  20. I would have a huge gym with belcher and everything and gymnastics equipment a pool big cafeteria a big open field with soccer posts and football lacrosse too. Air-conditioners in ever room and have everyone with an iPad.

  21. A school that at least had functioning bathrooms would be nice. A school where every stall had a lock, and every door fit the stall’s doorframe. A school where you wouldn’t walk in to a regular, unmarked, women’s bathroom to find a group of adult men doing work in there.

  22. My perfect school would have FUNCTIONING air conditioning and heating in every room. And it wouldn’t catch fire. Or blow up. Or have bursting pipes. Or mold. Or fires. And soap would be nice sometimes

  23. A school with no roof leakings, no power outages, clean washrooms, and teachers that don’t just give out booklets and textbook questions n actually teach students.

  24. My perfect school would have a lot more rooms like instead of using the Science room as the French room it go its own. Also my perfect school would have a bigger gym.

  25. A school with teachers who care about the students and actually want to be engaged in our learning would be perfect. Building wise: a bigger gym, air conditioning and windows!

  26. If I could build a perfect school, it would have a respectable sports program, dedicated, hardworking teachers, and all the resources required to help students to succeed. there would be a lot of focus on assisting students to find out what they want to do in life. the building itself would be air conditioned, new, clean and large. On the school grounds would be a hockey rink, soccer fields, and basketball and tennis courts. My school would help you succeed in all aspects of your life.

  27. If I could build a perfect school it would have a large area for sports and other activities, where there is an ice rink, track, soccer fields, tennis courts, etc. for students to enjoy their day at school. Inside the school, there is going to be enough rooms where teachers have their own class rooms, and won’t have to rotate through to different rooms throughout the day. All class rooms will have comfortable chairs, and strong Wi-fi. At lunch all students can fit into the 2 big cafeterias built to hold hundreds of students. The school will be very clean, air conditioned, and heated in all rooms.

  28. The perfect school would have the great facilities of Catholic Schools and the great teachers of public schools. Another thing from my experiences is that the IB teachers at my school are much better than the regular teachers.

    Follow me on twitter @ogalaga

  29. It would have air fresheners in the change rooms hall ways washrooms etc. now that’s IMPORTANT because most students have a bad smell it’s true thank u

  30. A perfect school to me would have large modern classrooms. The teachers would be engaging and motivating. Finally, there would be large sports facilities to support peoples needs.

  31. Unlike Ancaster High, it would not have an unidentified brown liquid dripping from the ceiling and it would not spontaniously catch on fire. It would have good insulation, and no asbestos. It would have a spacious cafeteria. In addition, good faculties for the performing arts would be present. All the bathrooms would have soap dispensers, and more than one plug per classroom.

  32. The rooms would have air conditioners there could be like a moving stand table with a iPad mounted into them and they have those in every group. When your finished work your should be able to use them. The rooms should be different coloured and not all the same.

  33. My school is out in the middle of nowhere, and as you can guess, we don’t have many students there. If I could design a perfect school, it would definitely include many activities and different clubs/groups. My school barely has any of those and I really wish that we had more opportunities.

  34. The rooms would have air conditioners. There could be a moving stand table with a iPad mounted onto them and they have them in every group. When you finish your work you should be able to use them. The rooms should be different coloured and not all the same.

  35. My school would have lots of different programs that have to do with what the student likes. It would have an amazing basketball court and a Harveys/A&W in the cafeteria and nice chairs to sit in.
    🙂 :0

  36. Functioning air conditioning and heating, no fires, no asbestos, no unidentifiable brown liquid leaking from the ceiling and landing on students, no falling ceiling tiles, actual soap in the bathrooms, bathrooms that actually look like they’re cleaned daily, and teachers that can actually teach the subject they’re supposed to. And the building would be modern and look like schools do in pictures

  37. It would be awesome if our school could have nice clean washrooms with working doors, soap and toilet paper; a cafeteria that is regulated to make sure the kitchen is clean and the food is sanitary, also different options would be nice. Someone should make sure the school is properly heated so that we don’t have to wear our coats while writing.

  38. It would have a laptop or computer for everybody with many varieties of school sport teams students can get involved with. It would have a lot of clubs too, if people don’t want to do sports.

  39. The perfect school is hard to determine as everyone would have a different opinion… But in the Case of Ancaster High School I would probably fix the asbestos in the walls and floor tiles, the broken pipes / ceiling in the tunnel with unidentified brown liquid dripping down, maybe include some actual air conditioning so tat we don’t suffer from heat stroke, actually have locks in the bathroom, stop having explosions in our generators very few months, and perhaps even have snow days on the days when its NEEDED and not to make up for the last time when there wasn’t a snow storm or -40C weather.

  40. if i could build the perfect school it would include air conditioning in the summer months, and heaters in the winter months. it would also include updated resources such as textbooks that were from the last five years. also, washrooms that include a decent water pressure.

  41. if I could build the perfect school it would include air conditioning during the summer months and proper heating during the winter months. bathrooms that include decent water pressure and paper towels. also and an update with text books and other resources,

  42. The ceiling wouldn’t leak, there would be air conditioning, the tunnel would be insulated,some of the teachers would be better at teaching, there would be curtains that worked in the classrooms. School would start at 10am and run until 4pm. The cafeteria food would taste nicer and we would all have soap.

  43. My perfect school would have air conditioning. The ideal school would also have enough school supplies for each class so we could bring textbooks home which helps with homework and studying.

  44. My perfect school would spend months evaluating each and every student to learn everyones interests and preferred learning strategies. Each student would then be placed in a class with other students who share the same interests as them. Once this happens the fun can begin:
    Schools will be placed in a location that best suits the type of topics being learned inside. Sports Academies will be built at higher altitudes and have access to wind tunnels. They will be fed a diet of muscle milk, tofu, titanium nails and fire.
    Schools more devoted to the arts will be placed in locations with scenic views of forests, coral reefs, mountain ranges etc. New technology will allow the resurrection of past art genius like Shakespeare and Da Vinci to teach lessons in place of teachers.
    Military Academies will be much more numerous than before. In order to compete with other counties militaries and eventually achieve world domination many adjustments will be made to our current schools. To learn how to function in total darkness, students will spend their first semester wearing blindfolds. Ancient Chinese karate masters will be brought from overseas to teach students self defence. For conditioning and endurance, all students will be required to spend their 5th grade year living in recreated spartan settlements where army drill sergeants dressed as greek warriors will be the instructors. All preschools will teach in a different language every month. High schoolers will spend the majority of their time overseas functioning as sleeper agents.

  45. At Ancaster High’s Student Voice, we are thinking of implementing school signs for directions, coupled with school-spirited names. This is a realistic outlook at how the physicality of schools can be enhanced. Moreover each school has an ‘area’ to work on. I believe this is upon the students and admin to locate and plan accordingly to improve this area.

  46. the perfect school would have inspirational quotes every where every one would be kind to each other and they wouldn’t always be getting in your business. it would be a smart school with laptops and computers and all of the work would be hands on because with kids in this century we don’t feel like looking into a textbook all day. it would be clean and safe we would have after-school programs and tons of super fun trips and all the teachers would care and make sure that they were doing the best thing for the student it would be huge and we would also have a pool for swiming

  47. It would have fully functional air conditioning, heating and opening windows. It would also have fully working lockers and wi-fi that is easy to get on all over the school. Finally, it would have more plugs in classrooms so people could charge their laptops.

  48. I think the perfect school would be just one big school in the middle of the city. I think this because the school would have good programs, instead of each school having something like one good program. Also, the school would have a teacher for each subject instead of one teacher teaching many things. Another thing is, it would be able to teach with the different learning styles like auditory, visual and tactile learning. That is what a perfect school would look like.

    1. If I could make the perfect school, I would paint the inside all bright colours around the school so it can brighten someones mood, I would put insirational quotes around the school to boost your mood aswell. I would have a pool because I mean, who doesnt like to swim? Then lastly I would have a room where YOU can learn about whatever YOU want and be free to learn about what your passionate about.

  49. If I could build the perfect school it would sort of be like a college where kids can focus on their strengths and expand on them but it would still be like a school where you still learn the important things like what you usually learn in school like math and language (etc) but you can still choose what you want to learn like when I want to improve and expand on my knowledge of the internet and technology but still want to learn more on other stuff like sports because I am not super athletic when it comes to sports so i can choose that topic in that school and once you choose your subjects it will be in your schedule and will be put in a class that other people chose the same subject as you

  50. If i could build the perfect school i would have lots of opportunities for kids to sign up for sports teams and clubs and more tings for kids to enjoy to make kids enjoy school even more.

  51. I think a perfect school should have a simple design, to make sure that new students don’t get lost and all classrooms are easy to find. I also think recreation and athletics are important. Ideally, a perfect school would have a large pool, an outdoor track, soccer/ football field, and large gyms. Also, lots of schools are not being built with auditoriums anymore. I think that sitting in comfortable chairs when watching an assembly contributes to school spirit much more than sitting on a cold, hard gymnasium floor.

  52. The “perfect school” is a difficult question to answer. Does it involve comfort, educational opportunities or a combination of both?

  53. I think Ancaster High was built with “Fiddler on the Roof” Logic- “I’ll have one long staircase just going up, and one even longer coming down, and one more leading nowhere just for show!”

  54. If I cloudless build a prefect school it would be like a skyscraper with electronics in every room and have proper air conditioning and heating with all different kinds of sports fields in the back playground!

  55. I think the perfect school would have lots of stuff, so like a soccer field, and a really big gym with lots of open gyms everyday. Have’s lots of sports teams, And Bullying Is NOT ALLOWED at all! And if anyone bullys they will get kicked out of The school, and it has alot of money so they never ever run out of money, so we can have new textbooks EVERY YEAR. The teachers have to be really nice and can give A Excellent Education. It would be good if we go on lots of trips around the world and we have lots of freedom and everyone is nice to others. And students have an important voice so if everyone hates the principle, then the princible HAS to step down.

  60. our perfect school would have, a bigger gym, two stories, a chalk wall in the art room, bigger lockers, bean bag chairs, bigger desks, bigger field, more trees, tv’s in hallways and classrooms to stream announcements, more windows in classrooms, bigger hallways, more classrooms,

  61. I think that it needs to have an abundance of learning tools and learning opportunities! It should really tech.. take advantage of the technology that we have.Such as laptops and i pads! It should be a school that supports everyone no matter race or religion!

    There should be athletic programs such as running,soccer,basketball,and etc. There should be full soccer/football fields and a track.I hope there were to be sports team that partake in every sports event that we can.

    I also want a gifted program so the smarter classmates can reach their full potential in academics. And teachers that help the ones who are struggling.

    And last i would want a happy and safe environment school.Anti bullying!

  62. If I could build the perfect there would be a make your own club system so no one would feel left out I would have a no bullying and I mean it. Some school say no bullying but they do nothing about it. My School would have a fully funded arts program and so much more for every kid that always feels alone and that gets left out. I could think of a thousand ways to make a good school but iI can’t put it all in words. These are my thought on a perfect school

  63. Amy: A perfect school would be double floored with an elevator. It would have a big cafeteria. We could choose what subjects we want like in high school.
    Courtney: The perfect school would have a cafeteria. One direction would be there. We would have more then one gym period. We wouldn’t have any double periods. There would be a Taco Bell.

  64. Kurt: If I were to build the perfect school it would look like an Asian style temple. Language will become classes were students can learn different languages like Spanish,Italian,Korean,Japanese… and lots others. Kids can starts clubs.

  65. our school has to have rainbow walls all over the place and also needs T.V’s all over the school and with each computer, comes with ether a PS3 or PS4

And it would start at 9:30am and end at 4:30pm !Also we would have 90 minutes of free period ware we could go ware ever in the school and do whatever like swim,go work out, play sports in a gym, go on a computer, and hang out with friends outside or any ware that would be the perfect school!

  69. For my Perfect school i would l0ve it to be alot of phisical classes and for the class there would be not alout of work but a decent amount of work but i dont really talk to much so i think thats all it

  70. A perfect school for me would be big 3 gyms because you will have fun at school everyday when you can go to 3 gyms. Also it would be better if there is more iPad more computer to learn new word if you don’t really know how to speak English. Then you will have 30 minutes to go outside and 30 minutes to eat. You will always have 60 minutes to play on the gym everyday. It will have bigger room, bigger washroom.

  71. a perfect school for me would be bigger classes and more electronics for our knowledge. Also 20 minutes everyday for students to catch up on their work or if they need more help. Every school should get their own cafeteria.More languages for students to learn that is what i think about a good school
    in every class there also be an air conditioning

  72. My perfect school would have a nice a/c and the gym would be huge so we could play like 3 sports at once and it would have a chill room so whenever at breaks you could go to the chill room and you could just ”chill”. It would also have All new technological things like laptops for every kid and they got to bring them to every class. And there would be alot of physical hands on activity. There would be a awesome basketball team and i would get NBA players to come in to the school to teach basketball for gym class. Thats what my perfect school would be like. Thx School bored for giving us a voice!!!!!

  73. if i could build the perfect school i would have a big gym with alot of equipment and mats surrounding the walls. in the computer lab i would have alot of computers for students and ipads or any apple stuff. i would also have lots for classroom for each grade and there would be each teacher for the subject that they teach & during recces i would a some swings on the play ground and some soccer nets for everyone to play. i would also have some more cleaner washroom.Thats how i would build the perfect school .

  74. if i could build a perfect school there would be a lot of hands on activities like in science and fun physical activities in phys ed class.
    i am not a big fan of math but if i made a school then i would make sure everyone understands what there doing before they do it.
    i would also make a cafeteria for free snacks.finally i would make a playground with a slide monkey bars sand box and great equipment.

  75. My school would be totally awesome. First each class wold have there own gym, with tons of equipment and there own computer lab. In the summer there would be a school pool and park. When it comes to homework and learning….there would be only one day of the week for homework. It would be hands on learning and lots of technology. If a student dosent fully understand something, they can choose extra time classes to expand their knowledge.

  76. If i were to make my own school it would have a cafeteria with free food, a massive gym, a indoor swimming pool for a swimming team, 3 floors, it goes up to grade 12, a basketball court, a football field, a soccer field, a park, 1 hour lunches, the perfect air condition, and fun teachers ONLY with the best principal ever.

  77. If I could build the perfect school, it would have a swimming pool , a big gym and 2 floors. the first floor for classrooms to learn, and the second floor so kids can practice their skills,talents,and sports. we should have an auditorium,and a track outside so students can prepare to perform or be ready to run in track and field or cross country. We should have more fun days and all students should have access to the school dances.Class trips should be more educational so students can learn and have fun at the same time.

  78. If I could build the perfect school for me and for all the students in our area it would be one with these special qualities: 1. a school where teachers understand and can help individuals if they have problems at home or at school or outside. 2. with special programs such as Sports programs some kids can not afford huge sport programs or equipment. 3. baking classes! some girls have always wanted to have a baking class to learn how to bake to help with fundraising for school development or class trips.sometimes families can not afford baking classes for their girls. 4. a huger library with more genres and levels and sometimes we should have at least a 30 minute break for studying for tests and quizes.
    please repond, thankyou.

  79. If i were to make my own school or design one. I would have lots of gyms and take sports super seriously and also have a good learning program. We would be the best at every sport and the school would be called perfect game. This school would make athletes and einsteins. This would be my school.

  80. Dear Readers, If i could build a perfect school it would be called “school for girls”. This school will have gym with a swimming and skating rink.

  81. My perfect school would start at 12:00 pm and end at 3:00 pm, because students spend more time with their teachers than their own parents, and with families spending more time together, it might even make a happier environment. My school would have a big spacious gym with lots of equipment for all kinds of sports and games, and the gym would be connected to a rec center with a 11 ft. deep pool and a low and high diving board. The classrooms would also be big with lots of learning tools. There would be different classrooms, some for the same subject but each class that has the same subject, would be learning about different things to do with that subject for example, one class would have fractions and algebra,another would have addition, subtraction, division, and multiplication, and another with decimals, and other advanced learning.

    The teachers would teach the same thing until everybody understands it. There shouldn’t be anybody behind and everybody would be encouraged to do their best. Just because you’re learning, it doesn’t mean you can’t have fun. There would be no homework because you’ve already been doing enough work at school. Their would be a field trip every month, one month educational, the next month is for a break, this would create a pattern. School would be 3 days a week and same with the weekend, and the left over day would be half the amount of time that it usually is because most kids don’t find it fair how it’s unbalanced. K bye…
