A kid walks 5 miles up hill to AND from school.- How does he do it?

I thought of some unconventional ways that this is possible. Just get creative with your answers, this should give us some laughs.

The kid goes to M.C. Escher High School. It's best not to ask too many questions.

I believe the first line of the riddle should read "I come at the beginning of end and at the end of time", in which case the answer is the letter E. But I googled that so I cheated. :)

Three theories :P

1) He does whatever he wants to get to school, because he goes to law school and understands human rights.
2) He goes to school and says he walks 5 miles both ways. This is because he understands human rights and freedom of speech, because he goes to a law school.
3)The boy no longer cares about the riddle he invented several months ago because he got expelled from the law school for liying explicitly.

How do you spell "liying"?

 Or...

1) He plays leapfrog with his "pleasingly plump pal."
2) It's the pothole that's five miles deep.
3) He has multiple houses and schools, all of which are always exactly five miles apart on a hill
4) His teacher has a bunk o' bustin' mega super ultra... BOOM!
5) He wakes up after having a very strange dream, in which his next destination is always five miles uphill.

 1.He lives like me. My school is 5 miles between my gramps house and home, IN the morning I go to my gramps house. then i walk five mile up the 15 degree hill and then 5 miles back home after school done. Both homes are owned by my family or in this case the kid.

2. The school is at sea level on mars, his house is 5 miles into a frozen sea with only 2 ways out one directly to school and one vertically down. He walks to school up a slope and gets there. After school he has to climb to the top of the mountain then moon jump down and land perfectly in the exit which goes vertically down into his house in order to avoid alien death virus which is only active on sea level on the afternoon.

Or maybe he wasn't home to start with. He could have been at his friend's house or his grandparents' house in the morning, having slept over, and then went home after school.
(You didn't specify that he started from home ;D)

The kid had a teleporter device that made it look like he was going up hill to school, but wasn't really, he was going downhill.

A bit late, but how about:
His parents are separated. It is a friday. In the morning, he walks from his mum's house (at the bottom of the hill) and then afterwards, he goes to the top of the hill to spend the weekend with his dad.

How's that?

It's a 10 mile walk., and there is a hill that is directly inbetween the two.
So to get to school he has to walk 5 miles uphill, and 5 downhill.
Same thing with the way back.

His parents are separated and he spends the mornings and nights at his mum's and the evenings at did dad's.
So he leaves his mum's in the morning, walks uphill to school, then, after school walks uphill to his dad's.  Later that evening, his dad gives him a lift back to his mum's ready for the next day.

There is a 10 mile distance between his house and the school.  Both his house and the school are at the tops of 5-mile-long hills.  To get to school he walks 5 miles downhill, then 5 miles up;  the same trip for return.

The kid lives on a gentle slope, rising from the valley bottom to the top of a range of hills over several miles. In the morning he walks 5 miles uphill to "The flying school" a mechanical marvel built in the shape of a giant woodlouse. During the course of the day the school flies to various locations for lessons, but ultimately returns to the valley-bottom, where he then has to walk another 5 miles uphill home.
And they apprehend some criminals about 14:30.

The school is on a floating barge.  In the morning it is moored 5 miles up river.  He has to walk 5 miles uphill to get to school.  By the afternoon it has floated 5 miles down river and he has to walk 5 miles up hill to get home.
