FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS ABOUT THIS QUEST

please read before asking

I have missed this quest! Why can’t I start it yet?
You cannot miss main quests they have to be completed in order. You need to complete all previous quests (list can be found here) and reach level 19 before you can start this quest

Can I complete this quest even though I have passed level 19?
Yes, you just need to complete all previous quests then this quest will start automatically

Why are there two versions of this quest?
Some quests have two versions, as when the makers have updated the times for quests they haven’t updated them on all devices so some players still get the old times

I can’t afford the town hall, how can I earn more simoleons?
This post may help

Can I build the town hall early?
Yes you can

How do I give my sim a job?
Give this post a read

Can I use a BBQ at my house to cook pulled pork instead of the park?
Yes you can

What do you mean when you say a goal can be started early?
Any goal that you can normally do can be started early because you will have access to it and any goal that you can’t normally do you will have to wait until you get the goal to be able to complete it
The tip with this method is to put the sim doing that action early in a different house that you cannot go to until you get that goal or it will not work

I have completed this quest but it will not allow me to enrol my teen sim at high school, why?
You need to build the high school in sim town first

I don’t like this quest! Can I just skip it?
No, you have to complete this quest before you can move onto the next one

Some times are slightly different on my game, why is this?
Times may vary depending on the star rating of the item you are using, as the higher star rating an item has the quicker you will complete a goal

Some times are really off/ different goals show for me, why is this?
This will be because the quest has been updated recently, I try my best to keep these posts up to date but it is difficult as I cannot redo every quest each time the game is updated. If you notice any changes please let me know so I can update the post


The next quest is The Pirate and His Goddess which unlocks pirate ship trading- you will need a teenager to be able to complete this quest

  1. Just a quick comment. I’m sure others have told you but just in case, the Higher Education quest follows the Teenager quest. At least on my game. I was on the teenager quest when the pirate one became available and when I finished it the next quest was the Higher Education. Thank you for all you do. I love your site.

    • Actually no one else has told me! Thank you, I just assumed it went there because the pirate pop up that showed a few days before said it unlocks from level 18 but it looks like they got that wrong! 😛 its changed now though 🙂
      You’re welcome! I’m glad you like it 🙂

  2. Do you have to cook the double smoked pulled pork on a BBQ at the park? Just wondering because I have a BBQ at one of my Sims’ houses, and it takes around 17 hours to do it there versus 20 at the park.

  3. I completed the quest but when I try to enroll my teen it says the school is locked. I tried giving someone the teaching career but it didn’t help. Is there anything I may be missing?

  4. I just called the mayor and according to your blog I have to bake a caramel slice so I already started that this morning so I wouldn’t need to wait so long. However the game tells me that I have to let a sim take a deep sleep now. Maybe it’s new or they changed the quest? Anyway the sleeping comes after the “call the mayor” with me. Maybe after this I need to bake the caramel but I don’t know yet. Thought i’d let you know.

  5. Maybe it changes depending on your phone, just like which quests are available? For me, on this quest, I was to bake the 10hr caramel slice after calling the mayor. I have had to skip quests before that I don’t have, but this is the first change during a quest I’ve had 🙂

  6. hello. I have a quick question. Once you complete this quest and are ready to build the high school how much does it cost? I am asking because I am still working on the teenagers quest and I am taking my time because I am trying to earn and save up money and LPs for the next few quests. I’m sure building the highschool is going to be very expensive especially since this last update and how EA has been screwing us over at least in my opnion. Anyways, I love your blog and all your hard work. You do a great job! 😀 Thanks

  7. I can’t get my teen to high school. My politician is a mayor so can go no higher. Completed the pirate quest. Next one in queue is Seniors. The school is built so no idea why can’t enroll-it’s not even an option like some here say they are getting times. Your is my go to site to get questions answered. Great site.

  8. I have built the townhall and I have one Sim as a politician (if I am not wrong, she is level 5/6). So for the part that my sim has to advance on the career – how do I proceed with that? any idea?

  9. Do you know what the highest level of the ancient goddess is? I also do not understand the hobby skill level, and the significance of it. Thanks!

  10. I’ve built senior school. But i still cant enroll my teen to school. It is unlock. I’ve completed my teen quest too. And now i am in pirates’ quest. What should i do to unlock my teen to school?

    • I think this is a glitch, I have heard of other people having this problem too
      Have you got the latest update? Has this fixed it? If not I think you should contact EA to see if they can sort it out.

  11. Hi there,
    I built my high school and am now halfway through the next quest (pirate) and it still will not allow me to enroll either of my two teenagers. I keep getting the ‘locked’ message.
    I also tried to see if my current teacher could quit the elementary school and then work for the high school, but it appears there isn’t an option for that distinction.
    Maybe this is a glitch? The other posters on here with ‘locked’ high school enrollment seem to have not built the school, but I have.. And I’ve finished the quest, And I’ve ‘clicked’ on the school since being built… I appreciate any thoughts 🙂

    • I think this is a glitch, I have heard of other people having this problem too

  12. Heyy great blog!
    So this game has been on my iPad for like years lol but I don’t always play it(I get bored of it and leave it then after a year or so I remember it then return back to it then get bored and so on) and that has pretty much caused me a problem, because as I started playing it again I could not remember much of what I had did the last time I played it, the last thing I remember is getting to the “call the mayor” goal, and when I returned to the game the “call the mayor” goal was gone…I have no idea what happened and why the goal was gone.
    The thing is, only now that I’ve returned to the game and reached level 24 have I realized that my teenager isn’t going to school,so I opened the career and education box scrolled to where my teen is and it was written there that the sim is “not enrolled” , I clicked on the graduation hat symble and it says that the school is locked! How can I unlock it? There are no guests regarding the high school
    Thank youu, hope you didn’t fall asleep lol

  13. Not sure if you’d know this, but if we already have sims as a mayor, do we still need to have another sim start a new career at town hall as a politician or will it complete automatically like the get promoted to level 2 will?

    Thanks for your site, it’s so helpful!

  14. Is this the final quest so far without a time limit? With school starting again on Monday, I’m trying to decide if I want to stop here for a while and build up simoleons and lps and continue leveling up so I don’t miss out on potentially cool prizes because I ran out of time in future quests or if I can just push through. I’m already at level 34 and behind on like 8 quests and I can imagine there will be more surprise quests with each holiday this semester. :-/

  15. I’m supposed to Do the power cord presentation on a black board, and I have the teachers black board but it does not give me to option to present. help?

  16. If I have a sim working as a politician and is already at the highest level, do I need to get another sim to work as a politician? Or the task will just automatically complete? Thanks! Great blog!

  17. U mentioned that in the part
    “Bribe Ducks with caviar”-1Day
    U mentioned that
    “but will take a toddler 5 mins”
    Do u mean that, a toddler can also do that part in the quest? I mean, a toddler can also bribe the duck?! O.o

  18. So I’m on level 19 an I have a teenager but I’m not sure if I’m anywhere near being able to build the high school…. :/

  19. I just aged a toddler to a pre teen and will age her to a teenager when I get done with that quest. Are there different desks for teenagers? Are they better? I’m trying to figure out if I should get her a desk now or wait until I can access the teen desks. Thank you so much!

  20. I’ve used life points to skip the deepsleep goal and now I am on announce grand opening so I pretty sure the call the mayor doesn’t exist anymore
    Thanks love ur blog once again!

  21. Not sure if anyone had mentioned this or if it was just a glitch in my game, but for “deep sleep” task, I had a teenager power snoozing and when he woke, it counted it as my “deep sleep”! What a pleasant surprise!

  22. I am doing this quest right now, and after being Inconspicuous and being at Level 2, it has me Call the Mayor (5 minutes on my phone). Then the Deep Sleep option was given to me.

    • unless they are timed quests they will always been available, if you want to do this quest you have to complete previous quests before you can do this one, it hasn’t disappeared.

  23. I had a new sim who was unemployed and gave them the politician job and sent them to work. Is that considered starting a new career? It hasn’t completed the task yet

  24. Currently doing this and ‘Call the mayor’ came AFTER ‘Get Promoted to Level Two Politician’. 🙂 Just wanted to let you know! Thanks for all your help. xx

  25. There is a hint that comes up saying if your student does well, there is additional content. I’m referring to the quick boxes that flash helpful hints as you go into the game. Do you know anything about this? I’ve never seen any reference to additional content for teens here or on any other reference site. Thanks. Great blog. This is my main goto site, like so many others.

  26. This sucks. I cant find the toddler duck i think they took it away for some resaon. All i see is adult ducks and they both say bribe for one day. Help?!?!?!

  27. Hi. Thanks for your valuable blogs – My sims wouldn’t be where they are today without them!
    I have a question, not sure if there’s an answer. I have built the secondary school and have a teen attending there. One of my adult sims is a teacher at the elementary school, but I can’t get a teacher into the secondary school – the only option for teaching seems to be at elementary level. Any ideas? I’m a little concerned my teen is running wild with no supervision in school – though to be fair, she hasn’t attended much, having been sidetracked for some time by a certain pirate! 😉
