    I'm kind of a noob to Tasker but I set up contexts for the times I go to school and the days of the week and I was going to add my schools location but I want to be battery efficient... What would be the best approach? And there probably isn't a way to do an exit task right? Because the phone can't check the location if it's off right? Thanks in advance

    You're right about the exit task - if it's off, it's off. As an alternative you could silence it and set it to airplane mode, which should prevent it interrupting you and keep power usage down, but could be exited.

    The most battery efficient way of doing a location is the "cell near" list. Much less accurate than GPS, but very little power drain and combined with the day/time information may be good enough unless you are likely to be in the same area on days when you don't want it to be active (e.g. the holidays). If you live near the school you might want to use a more accurate method though.

    You may find this helps: Tasker: Location Without Tears

    Okay, its not a big deal if i must turn it back on manually and i can use the wifi near, because my school has wifi. So tasker will only turn off or silent or whatever, only if its that time, on that day, near this wifi right? Or how many of those comtexts must be active?

    All contexts must be"true"for the task to run

⚙No repetitive tasks for you, let your Android device handle it!⚙
Total Automation, From Settings to SMS. Here are only some
of the things you could do with Tasker. Its real power is the flexibility to combine contexts and tasks however you wish: https://tasker.joaoapps.com/exampleuses.htmlAutomations
Make your phone a true smart
phone! Why remember to change the volume every day when you leave home when your phone can do it for you? Automate stuff based on the app you're in
, the time of day
, your location
, your Wi-Fi network
, Received SMS or Calls
, the currently playing song
and many other (130+) states and events! Check out how easy it is to create an automation: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=s6EAbLW5WSkActions
350+ actions allow you to truly customize your phone like never before! Send SMS, create notifications, change almost any system setting like Wifi Tether, Dark Mode, Always On Display, change any volume, control Do Not Disturb, open apps, file manipulation, control music playback, get your location... you get the idea. If you can think of it, Tasker can probably do it for you! Note: root is NOT (I repeat NOT) required for majority of the functions.
However, a few of the actions (like the Airplane Mode action and the Mobile Data action on some devices) require root. Regarding those few actions that do require root, this is because of Android security policies that developers cannot work around. ☑ Other Triggers
Manually trigger your actions via launcher shortcuts, quick setting tiles, widgets, long-pressing volume buttons, media buttons (like the ones on your BT headsets or headphones), Bixby button, Navigation Bar, Notificaitons and more! ☑ Join - Remote Tasker
Adding Join (https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=com.joaomgcd.join) to the mix will even allow you to trigger tasks from another Android device or PC! ☑ Scenes
Design your own UI and use it to display any info you want or trigger any task! ☑ App Creation
Create your own standalone apps to share or sell with the Tasker App Factory (https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=net.dinglisch.android.appfactory)! ☑ Developer Friendly
A lot of 3rd party developers already allow you to perform actions in their apps and listen to their events/states through Tasker! Check out a list of plugins https://tasker.joaoapps.com/pluginlist.html. You can also call most of the Web APIs from Tasker with the powerful HTTP Auth and HTTP Request actions!
