Dreams about being at school often mean you are feeling inescure about your social status, your abilities or your performance in a situation.
A dream that takes place in school may also be a metaphor for the lessons you are learning in your life.
To dream of ditching/skipping school may indicate that you have skipped something important or avoided your responsibilities – have you done the right thing in a situation? If you dream about the first day of school, you could simply be nervous about returning to school in real life. Or, this dream may also be a warning to pay closer attention to your responsibilities.
A dream about the last day of school can be a straight-forward reflection of reality, meaning you are looking forward to school being over! This dream may also represent how much you have learned from your experiences, and your readiness to go forward with a new phase of your life.
If you dream of visiting an old school, your unconscious mind is telling you that you have come a long way.
Try to consider the lessons you learned in the past, and apply them to your current challenges. Your mind could also be trying to teach you what worked or didn’t in the past, so you can change your behavior and be happier in the present.
