In high school, some students are quick to make a distinction between being book-smart and street-smart. The students that are book-smart are generally those who thrive academically – able to memorize endless math formulas or analyze passages of the most advanced literary works. Conversely, the kids with street smarts are able to approach real life problems, take a step back, and adapt to come up with the best solution to have them come out on top.
