A student is a learner, or someone who attends an educational institution. In its widest use, student is used for anyone who is learning, including mid-career adults who are taking vocational education or returning to university. An individual living in the United States typically spends the majority of their adolescence as a student (ages 5 – 18).

During a teen’s duration of living as a student, he/she will be provided with a multitude of opportunities to better their lives, depending on what kind of grades or accomplishments they achieved as a student. Teen’s, who receive excellent grades, will reap benefits and opportunities that students with poor grade will not be given. Moreover, students, who excel in athletics, may also achieve opportunities through their ability and athletic prowess.

Troubled adolescents are typically poor students during their time of academics. These types of teens seemingly don’t care about scholastics and instead, care about living in the moment, relishing in instant gratification and indulgences. Troubled adolescents, in general, do not care about their future, and, therefore, don’t care about their life as a student. For these types of teens, parents can trust in the services of trouble adolescent treatment, such as, therapeutic boarding schools, group homes, and residential treatment facilities for struggling teens.
