People, who are not in school anymore, tend to dream of high school more often than about their primary school. The rule is, the higher the level of the school you dreamed about, the more serious the issue the dream refers to is.
For example, grade school is a minor issue, while a dream about a university indicates some major issues you are dealing with.
Dreams about high schools also symbolize important issues in your life. That is because high schools are very important period in every person’s life. They are a major turning point when we make significant decisions which reflect the rest of our lives.
Mistakes made during this period could cost us severely in our later age. High school marks the beginning of your mature age.
Our high school years are the ones when we meet people who then become our friends for life. These years are the ones remembered for the pleasurable and relaxed times spent in the company of our closest friends and other classmates.
Everything was simpler then and we didn’t have to worry about important life matters, only about studying and going to school.
These years are also the ones when we gain our first knowledge and lessons about the world and the way it functions. High school prepares us for the rest of our lives, regardless of the fact if we choose or not to continue with our education.
Because of such importance of high school in our lives, dreams about high school are very important. They can be provoked by many everyday situations.
We often dream about high school during periods of adjusting to some new environment, like going to a new school, moving into a new apartment and being worried about our neighbors, changing jobs, etc.
These are all situations when we are worried about being well accepted by the new people we encounter in the new circumstances we are in.
