Do you think that school is longer than it should be? Here’s some facts about why the average student would say they are in school for too long. The school board should be against the length of the school day because it prevents failing and the lack of sleep students get. The average student is in school for 8 hours and a 180 days out of the year for 12 years. Despite the fact that they have school for the early years of your life but then they’re working for the rest of your life and most would agree that education is a big factor of your life, because the harder you work in school could determine how hard you work later on in life.
If an individual likes to be stressed all the time, sleep deprived from countless hours of homework all while being criticised by their friends and teachers, Palmer is a good place. As a teenager struggling with the transition into adulthood, Community Prep allows you to take the days you need to deal with real life, outside of school. That is how high school should be ran.

Middle school can be a hard time for most students, it’s also when us kids find out more about ourselves and that’s where electives come in. Electives are supposed to help kids find out what they want to do/be in life, and if they are reduced it would be like forcing kids to do math, science, etc. for a living. If a kid doesn’t have anything to do all school year or even during the summer, electives would help activate the kid’s interests. According to the text Schools Should Leave No Elective Behind, Bob Balmer states, “More class choices would benefit students in preparing them for their ideal careers and providing smaller class sizes.” Kids should have the opportunity to discover what they want to do in life at an early age rather than high school, because in high school it’s almost time to go to college and pick a major but they didn’t have enough time to try any possibilities.
Little things like better teachers ones that can do more than read a textbook.

Most middle schools and high schools start school between the times of 7:30-7:45. Teens are very tired and do not want to go to school because of how early they have to wake up this has caused there to be many tardies to school. Mt school starts at 7:45 and I still think that we should push that start time back. A reasonable start time would be 8:30 and ending time would be around 3:50. This would cause teens to get much more sleep and not be as late to school.
School, when some hear the word, they moan or grunt in frustration, others may even find to enjoy it. However, Kate Peters found herself falling into despair when she found herself enrolled at Whittaker Magnet School. The mysterious school in the basement of a library, said to have the best test scores in more than one country.

Most of them all they want is to graduate and get their high school diplomas. Sherry writes that “tens of thousands of 18-year-olds will graduate this year and be handed meaningless diplomas” (1).

By that saying “[today’s kids are] getting cheated on by our educational
Allie was a straight-A student from kindergarten through middle school. When she came to high school, the workload had a huge effect on her performance for tests. She would study all night for one exam and average around a C grade. She was unfocused through every test. When those vital senses are at low functioning ability, it becomes a difficult task to remember all the crammed information from the night before, as seen from my friend
It’s interesting, isn’t it? How much information a student can squander when having slept only 6 hours. According to Nationwidechildren.org, the average hours of sleep a teen should acquire is 9 and ½ hours. When students are drowsy, not only does it affect their academic performance, but it also endangers their health and safety. Drowsiness contributes to over 100,000 crashes per year, can decrease a student’s academic performance, and can harm a child physically and mentally.
Despite the fact that countless studies have proven that students that receive eight to nine hours of sleep each night preform better in school, many schools still start school at the regular time. Diamond Bar high school is one of these schools that refuse to acknowledge these studies. Students these days have to balance schoolwork, athletics, club activities, and social lives. Getting the proper amount of sleep is the last thing on a young adults mind during their high school career. If so many studies have proven that when students get the right amount of sleep, then why does Diamond Bar high school, a school that prides itself on its high-test scores, not want to benefit their students even more by starting school later than the usual start time?
However, imagine a child’s experience through school without recess. For a growing number of students, losing recess is a startling reality while forty percent of U.S. schools are currently reducing or eliminating recess time (Dills 889). The elementary schools claim more classroom instruction is needed instead of recess. However, recess is a crucial part of children’s development and should not be eliminated. Elementary schools should be required to provide adequate recess time because recess promotes social development and increases physical activity that improves classroom focus
Asperger 's Syndrome is difficult to live with. It affects me in all aspects of life. In school, I have great difficulty communicating in groups (for example, Socratic Seminars); I either fail to speak up, misunderstand what someone is talking about, or ignore the entire discussion. This failure to follow through has drastically affected my grade and I immediately knew I needed to change my behavior, and fast. As I entered high school, with the help of my parents and prior experience, my social skills have steadily improved, and I began to work as a group.
My sister on the other hand was going into tenth grade and was ahead in her classes; to me, that wasn’t fair. I feel way less intelligent than all my old friends and I just want to try to get back to their level by taking advanced classes and working diligently. Knowing what my parents have said about me and how they think I’d do this year is more encouraging than I
In sixth grade, average students are being taught algebra which, 5 years earlier, would have been reserved for students enter 9th grade. The parents of today’s students, unless they have a career in which they use math regularly, are not able to assist their children with their math homework. Ignoring the fact that some parents may not have finished high school or even elementary school, most parents that did receive a high school education have probably forgotten, by this point, all of the math they learned when they were, say, Sally’s age. This inability to do what you feel you need to be able to do as a parent(assist your child) would cause unnecessary stress on the parents. Many people would argue, perhaps, that the children need to do less extracurricular activities if they know they don’t have enough time to do them and finish their homework.
