Hello all.

Our time in school and especially high school has a big impact on pervasive memories and annoying dreams. We've all heard of the "late for your exam" nightmare. But what are some of your reoccuring dreams concerning school and teachers? A few themes that I dream about nearly weekly are:

- roaming around a school that's a maze with missing floors and endless hallways. :omg:
- my high school teachers keeping me inside a building against my will, and me trying to escape, always getting caught then running again, getting caught and running, caught and running... :ohdear:
- my primary school building and playground randomly playing a role in otherwise non-related dreams. :smile:
- prolonged meetings with a former teacher in a private setting. :blush:

How about you folk?

When I was younger, I was on my high school's wrestling team. The practices ended pretty late, which meant that it was incredibly dark and cold by the time I got out of the dojo in winter--although, I didn't live in a place that snowed. Rather than ice, winter meant long nights of pouring rain. The rain was gorgeous to see but very unpleasant to stand in without umbrellas and proper boots.

I dream often about standing out in the rain after dark, waiting for my mom to pick me up by the school gym.

Only thing I can think of is those dreams I get now from time to time about being back in school again. Frankly, for me that alone is enough to be a nightmare.

I don't tend to dream about school that often (I dream about the house I grew up in a LOT though). That said Iv definitely had that maze dream in the school halls; our school was a cheap "temporary" building from the 70s that had very distinctive halls with a weird metal roof.

Is that your school? My old school had (it's been removed now. So much has changed in my old school as it doubled in size) a pretty cheap hallway built on the side of the 19th/early 20th century main building. It doubled as gym changing room for the boys, too. And it had almost exactly this roof/ceiling!

Yep thats my school, ours was exactly the same, it had a 19th century building that had been an old school and this was built as a separate extra building, we also had a separate gym/hall. The building was demolished shortly after I graduated, I think its a carpark now and there is a new multi-story building connected to the 19th century building.

It's really interesting to hear that other people have school dreams as adults! I know there's the classic trope of "realizing you showed up for class naked" and stuff, but I didn't realize it was a real thing for other people.
I do have school dreams a lot (not the naked one!), but they're never at anything resembling my real schools, just weird imaginary places. I always imagine myself in the dream as I am now (instead of being a kid), and they're almost always anxiety about schoolwork. Typically it's a scenario like:

I suddenly show up back in class, and realize I should have been attending class this whole time because High School never stopped. Now I'm in 22nd grade or something, and I have no idea what's going on because I missed a decade of classes
Or a variant of the same thing, where I've been on vacation this whole time, and now school is starting again, but we have a project due that we should have been working on for the past 10 years and I just neglected it

Arrrgh, it's so stressful! It's just that total dread about showing up for class unprepared, and it is such a huge relief when I wake up and realize I actually did graduate and don't have to rush to class in the morning. :happy:

That sounds sooo stressful. But also kind of funny- 22nd grade haha! Thanks for sharing. My stressy school dreams happen when I have an exam the next day (I'm currently still in University), I ALWAYS without exception dream about leaving the house too late, taking multiple trains, missing them, being on the wrong one, not knowing what station I'm in... Extremely disorienting and frustrating and awful. And then I wake up anxious, realize I have an exam today, and get double anxious! It's no bueno.

I'm currently twenty one and I've been out of school for a very long time, but I have plenty of reoccurring dreams about hanging out with my old friends and just walking around outside. During my time in high school, my two friends gradually started to drift away from me and moved on to other people, so doing fun stuff with them was something I unfortunately missed out on. I also moved away before I ever got the chance to say goodbye to either of them, so I guess I have a lot of unresolved feelings.

I have dreams that take place at 3 out of the 5 schools I attended. Often I'll be visiting my old elementary school for some reason, then wandering around the town.

My dreams set in my high school are the most common ones where I'll end up lucid dreaming. Something about that setting just makes my brain realize I'm dreaming, and then I get to take the reigns for a bit until I wake up.

My college dreams are the worst. They always involve terrible roommates, or riding the elevator but it's tilting and twisting the whole way up and then when I get to the top the floor is missing.

A lot of them involve a mashed-up version of My Middle School and High School, Graduating, a Dance Event, Two people I won't get into because it's a lot of bad things, Running around. Sometimes I'll be at school and then at my house and a dog bites me on the hand and breaks the skin (just today, my sister told us she was bitten on the Knee by a neighbor's dog and it broke the skin...Very coincidental.) As much as I HATE the sound of an Analog alarm Clock, the sound has never appeared in my dream.

One I've had repeatedly recently is that my high school diploma isn't valid because I missed a credit somewhere so I end up having to go back to high school as a freaking 30-something, lmao. I hate it so much!

I've had dreams similar to that. They're the worst!

I had a funny one last night. I was in elementary school and it was winter, and we were all participating in the "Emma Stone Downhill Wheelchair-Toboggan Race."

It's so strange humans all culturally share such similar dreams. Everything you've listed are things I also dream about regularly.

I also get dreams where I am late to work or some sort of venture with friends over and over again despite how much I am trying to shower or get dressed... or I will go to work or out somewhere and not realise I am naked.

Trying to pee but standing in a transparent cubicle in the street so everyone can see.

My teeth falling out or crumbling in my mouth.

Trying to catch a bus or train and getting lost or not being able to find the stop.

Oddly a lot of my dreams seem to revolve around getting lost and panicking, or something bad happening to my cat and me desperately trying to keep him safe.
