Composition notebooks

Composition notebooks are typically smaller in size, and have around 80 pages. They are perfect for taking notes in class or jotting down ideas on the go. These smaller notebooks are usually best dedicated to a single subject and since they do not have perforations, they are not the best option for students who like to tear out pages to turn in assignments.

Subject notebooks

Subject notebooks are larger, with an average of around 150 pages. Most subject notebooks have pockets and multi-subject notebooks will often include divider folders to help you keep track of your class notes in one place. Subject notebooks are most often available with a spiral bindings, and spiral notebooks are ideal for those who want a little more space to write. The spiral binding lets you lay the notebook flat or flip the pages you are not using under the cover while you write, making it easier to take notes however you prefer.

Weighing options by personal preference

Most elementary students need composition notebooks while older students might prefer a subject or spiral notebook. It all comes down to personal preference, so be sure to try out a few different types before you decide which combination of school notebook types is right for you.
