They will be at school for 5 hours and will start from level 3, grade C (no idea why they don’t start from level 1 but you can get them down to level one (if you really wanted to) by having them leave school and then enroll again, each time they leave they will level down)

Hey is there a way for my preteens to go down a grade? Maybe by not going to school?
No, they don’t go down a grade if they don’t go to school, they stay at their current grade.
how can i fill the award display with medals and such?
You need to keep sending your teen to school, they will level up and fill the case.
Hi, I’m trying to age my sim from a preteen to a teen but it’s telling me they aren’t at the biggest level in school and my preteen is at A+++. They have also leveled up as far as they can in their hobby and life goal. This is happening even with my adults. Any idea why or what should I do from here? I did go ahead and aged one but I lost their orb… I’m not understanding. Thanks!
They definitely are at the highest level! I think it just says this now so you know when you age them they will lose that career or education level. You shouldn’t lose an orb when you age them as you need to age them to complete their orb so I don’t know what happened there!
My question’s regarding changing a preteen to a teen. I can do that now but, I can’t afford to build a town hall to get them into a high school building yet. Can they stay going to school in the elementary until I can afford to build all the new buildings? I don’t want them to be lazy and wastrels, doing nothing. : ) Maybe I could homeschool them…
Your site is SO helpful! Thank you for all the time and effort you put into this – you help so many people with this – I appreciate so much, I’m sure many others do, too! Thanks!
Yes if they are still preteens they can go to elementary school for as long as you like, you don’t even have to age them to teens anyway!
You’re very welcome! 🙂
Does the high school not need a teacher?
No, teachers only work at the elementary school
I figured out a way to lower sims grade level! First, enroll them in school. Then make them quit via the careers tab. Their grade will be lowered. Could you add that to this post?
Thanks for that! I have added it to the post
I’m about to age my toddlers into preteens so I was wondering if you can accompany them to school like you can the police or actress career thank your so helpful
No you cannot go to school with preteen or teenage sims.
What about the high school in the city next to the hospital? I can’t find anything on it anywhere. Are you still here and/or on Twitter? Thanks
Sorry I haven’t created a post on it. Sims cannot go to school at Downtown High, the Class Clown hobby can be completed here, that is it.
