Is this possible?

So a kid walks to and from school everyday, walking uphill both ways without ever going downhill. How is this possible? I want to know what you think. When I get five answers I will tell you mine.

My answer is this:
His parents are separated and He lives with his Mother at the bottom of a hill. In the morning he walks to school, The school halfway up the hill. After school His mom is at work so he goes to his Fathers house. which is at the top of the hill.

living on a ship, when the kids go to class, the ship slowly rolls to that side. when they walk home to their cabins, the ship slowly rolls to that side. uphill both ways.

the answer "His parents are separated and He lives with his Mother at the bottom of a hill. In the morning he walks to school, The school halfway up the hill. After school His mom is at work so he goes to his Fathers house. which is at the top of the hill." would not work as it can only happen once. and the original questions says he does this everyday. So in the solution once he reaches his fathers house the next morning he will have to walk downhill to get back to school. Which is against the premise.

the kid takes a plane to school and he walks home (that is... if his school is farther away when he flies than when he walks)

Yes its possible. The school is on a hillside and has several floors. When the kid goes to school he/she walks uphill on Road A to the front door of the school. After school the kid exits from the back door which is on a lower level than the front door and must walk uphill on Road B to get home. Since you didn't specify, I'm saying that the kid uses two roads. If he/she must walk on the same road both ways, then the school remains the same, but the road is "U" shaped like a cul-de-sac and wraps around the school. Therefore the kid goes uphill to the front door in the morning, and exits from the back door going uphill once again to get home.
genius!

It's due to the Earth's Axial tilt and rotation. Look at a globe and you
will see what I am talking about.
