Obviously, many, if not most, schools do not allow students to bring game hardware. Depending on the school, some won’t even allow smartphones! You bring any of that, and your stuff will be taken up.

Of course, students would sneak in Nintendo and Sony portables, but the Switch isn’t only a handheld. Nintendo designed it for folks to play it at home or outside of the home. Doubt they meant at school!
