Felipe dreamed: “I often dream that I am very hungry and I can’t find food anywhere: my fridge is empty or full of inedible objects—like a watch, a ball, a sock.... I decide to go out and buy something, but the grocery stores are closed or close just as I am about to go in. So I get really mad. Other times I dream of a table full of exotic fruits (figs, grapes, papayas, strawberries) but when I bring something to my mouth, it turns to smoke or disappears. Then I wake up in a very bad mood, but curiously, I’m not hungry.” Dreams about food sometimes have a merely physiological trigger. However, in Felipe’s case—since he wakes up not hungry—they are warning him about another type of necessity, concretely hunger for affection and safety. When Felipe began to have this type of dream, he had broken up with a partner several months earlier. Even though it was his girlfriend who make the decision, he felt strong and optimistic and bragged about having gotten over it easily. However, his unconscious was reminding him, through dreams, that he was emotionally dry and more vulnerable than he thought. Gluttony sometimes has a sexual connotations: the fruit especially reveals a unsatisfied sensual desire. The fact that he couldn’t find food or stores open reflected his inability to understand his emotions and express them.... The Big Dictionary of Dreams

It is a throwback to the past, but it can help you understand the present. Not surprisingly, dreaming about the school may mean that you are behaving childishly.

If your school dream was negative, however, and you hated school, then your dream may be suggesting that you have not resolved your feelings about this life experience. You need to reassess your school days from an adult perspective.
If the school was ruined or dilapidated in your dream, this can represent the collapse of youthful illusions; your dreaming mind is urging you not to dwell on the past but to move on. Another interpretation of dreams about being back at school is that you are feeling suffocated by rules, regulations and restrictions in your waking life that are preventing you from leading the life you want to live. It can sometimes refer to feelings of rejection, aloneness and stress on leaving your mother for the first time. Your dreaming mind may also be urging you to seek out knowledge or learn new skills in waking life. Specific places or rooms in the school represent attitudes learned at school. For example, the library is a place of knowledge and stored information; the gymnasium is associated with physical health and a place where you take risks. School clothes suggest the social image you developed at school and school friends, those of your attitudes that you developed at school.

If you are still at school, or if you have a job and your dream referred to your actual workplace, then your dreaming mind was probably referring to your everyday concerns.
If you have left school, or the school or workplace in your dreams is unfamiliar to you, your dreaming mind may have been suggesting a past feeling or experience that has relevance for your current situation. Such dreams could also indicate a sense of restriction and your resentment that you can’t spend your time doing what you want. They could also be commenting on your social interaction with your peers and authority figures, since relating to others is an essential part of school and work.
Jung regarded dreams as teachers and guides on the road towards wholeness; from his perspective, dreams that feature schools and teachers were especially significant because schools are places of learning and maturing into a healthy adult. Jobs are closely linked to self-esteem in waking life, so the type of job that features in your dream—and the reward or lack of reward associated with it—can be significant indicators of your feelings of self-worth and of the success or failure of your approach to life’s challenges.
