-Calvin and Susie at school during a test

Calvin's school is a run-of-the-mill elementary school. Calvin's schoolmates include Moe and Susie Derkins.

Things that happen at school

Calvin encounters many things at his school, whether it's a fight with Moe, the constant "Fs" with Miss Wormwood, the constant coming and going to the principal's office, or the food at the cafeteria, Calvin always tries to make things fun for himself (like daydreaming) until he gets home. During his time at school, Calvin often daydreams in class, imagines being Stupendous Man, or he would ask many questions that are not according to the subject they're learning. He would pretend to go to the bathroom, or get a drink of water, when he's actually escaping from school (in one case because "[he] prefer[s] [his house's] water"). At lunchtime, Calvin would always sit where Susie sits, and always tells her how gross his lunch is, or he would buy lunch, and complain about it. Most of the time, Calvin tries to copy off Susie's answers, but sometimes Susie would give a wrong answer to him. In the hall, Moe always bullies Calvin, or tells Calvin to give him money. Before dismissal, Calvin always looks at the clock, and when it rang, he would burst out. This leads to Hobbes pouncing on Calvin when he comes home.
