Effects of Ditching in High School Students

Students who often are late and ditch classes are more likely to struggle academically
Kaya Paluda
When students start Kipling classes ad constantly being late to classes they often have a hard time academically. Making sure students aren’t ditching is important.

High school is a very important period in a kids life where they explore their personal and academic development, shaping them into the person they will be after school when they go out into the real world. With that being said, many students often ditch or skip class without permission, which could lead to many issues, such as academic, social, and legal issues.

Ditching or skipping school can often lead to significant academic consequences in a student’s life throughout high school. When students regularly miss classes, their ability to grasp new concepts, participate in class assignments, and complete assignments often dwindles. This can result in lower grades and missed learning opportunities, and students will fall behind with the widening of the knowledge gap. In addition, missing classes makes it difficult to catch up on schoolwork and homework, which puts the students at a disadvantage during tests or exams. The overall effect of ditching or skipping school can lead to poor academic performance and no motivation to go to school, which could eventually lead to an increased risk of dropping out.

Skipping school not only affects students’ academic performances, but it also has a social impact on students as a whole. As students regularly skip class, they become more isolated from their peers and friends, which leads to loneliness and depression. In addition, students who ditch school often engage in risky behaviors, such as rebel behaviors or delinquent behaviors, as they will find themselves with a lot of free time and no supervision on what they are doing. With these negative experiences, it can harm the students confidence and overall mental well-being, which could potentially lead to long-term consequences down the road in their personal and social lives.

With ditching school having academic and social impacts on students, it is not only a violation of school policies but can also have legal impacts on a student. When students are repeatedly absent from skipping school, it can result in legal action having to take place against the student and their parents, which includes fines, mandatory meetings, or counseling. In addition to that, a legal record or ditching or skipping school can have large impacts on a student’s future opportunities. These records could have a negative impact on things such as college admissions, scholarships, and even jobs.

The effects of ditching on high school students are very wide and also very impactful on a student. These can range from academic impacts to social challenges for a student. The consequences of ditching can have long-term effects on a student’s education and overall well-being. With that, students need to know what they are risking if they decide to go down that path in their youth years of life.
