Sims 4 Better School Mod – Improve Schools!


About Schools in Sims 4

We all know that the schools in Sims 4 aren’t the most brilliant feature ever, right? I mean, sending your Sim child or teen to school and watching them disappear for a few hours isn’t that fun or engaging. In the real world, school is like any other job, and it requires attention, time, effort, energy, and dedication. So if you’re looking for ways to improve the school experience in Sims 4, I want to introduce you to the Sims 4 Better School mod!

Why should you play with the Better School mod?

For starters, the Better School mod gives you more things to do at school. It adds new interactions, which make the whole school experience pretty realistic. I especially like the fact that every interaction reminds me of my own personal real-life experiences in school since the interactions are inspired by the real world.

Even though that should be enough of a reason for everyone to try this tool, let’s jump into greater detail of what’s inside the Sims 4 Better School mod!

What Does this Mod Do?

The Sims 4 Better School mod improves the school system by adding new interactions and allowing your Sims to build skills while in school. Now your children and teen Sims can work towards their skills but also have fun when they are at school.

How does this work?

Well, each interaction has a positive and a negative effect. In other words, with whatever you do at school, you’ll gain skills or needs in something but lose in something else.

For example, if you fall asleep during class, your energy will get increased. But your performance, manners, and responsibilities will decrease as well. So, choose carefully which interactions you perform when.
