The students that volunteer their time and knowledge on Reach a Student are eligible to receive community service hours. We are looking to expand our roster of academic and athletic mentors, interviewers, and video editors to help inspire and answer school-related questions.

Whenever students finish a lesson at school, it is not uncommon that they have to do some required practice at home. Although this may not be graded, it is just as important. Many students overlook the importance of homework and simply think they are fine without it.
Doing work just at school will not be enough practice for you, but homework is a way for students to understand if they are getting better, or worse. Some students feel scared to hand it in because they did it wrong, but that is okay. Homework is just practice, and if you are not doing well in it, teachers will be more than welcome to help you get better. Most teachers use homework to apply what you learned in class to problems that you can practice, so that students can have a better understanding of what they are learning.
Especially when studying for exams, homework is especially useful because you can use these documents to look back at what you learned all year and practice the content. Sometimes, teachers provide a study guide for the exams for you to practice which is also really important to complete as well. However, you cannot always rely on teachers posting these guides for you because they may ask you to use the content from the past year. If you have done homework in that course, it will be very easy for you to study for the exam, but if you did not complete the homework, you will have a much harder time studying for exams.So for people who despise the homework system, it is a very useful tool for many students, and even though you think you do not need to do it, it is always good to complete it because the more practice you have, the better you will do on quizzes, tests, and exams
