    "school performance" or "schoolwork performance"?

    Dear All:

    I am writing a sentence, which goes
    Because of you, I learn that one's ( ) or educational background have nothing to do with one's deeds.

    I am not sure that which phrase below is proper.
    - school performance
    - schoolwork performance
    - school grades

    And is it safe to replace "have nothing to do with" with "do not account for"?

    Thank you.

    Best Regards.

    I would use "school performance".

    No, you cannot replace "have nothing to do with" with "do not account for".

    Have nothing to do with = has had no effect on

    [do not] account for something = To explain by relating circumstances
