It's fun to have a song like this in your repertoire that is short, easy, and well... motivational! The beginning of the school year is the perfect time to sing of such things as reaching high and doing our best. But of course you can use it any time. It's a neat reinforcement for the first of the day or the week, or for some particular event, like preparation for testing.
The song is in cut-time and has a hip hop groove, which basically means it swings in a contemporary sort of way. It's performed in a light pop style and has many scoops indicated for vocal stylizing. Our singers provide good examples on the recording for yours to imitate.
