A student is one who "studies" or "learns" from a teacher.

The word, like much of the English language, comes from Latin, specifically, the second-conjugation verb "studere," or, "to pay painstaking attention to," or "zealously pursue." Thus the very word itself implies that a student ought to pay strict attention to his or her targeted subject.

As the face of American education changes, a student may be enrolled in a public school, a private school, or taught at home, or even online.
