in HS I got no sleep. I would be in class barely conscious, slurring words all over the place, unable to concentrate on anything, and forGET memory, I barely remembered my teachers names much less anything they tried to teach me. it was BAD. granted, my sleep habits were worse than usual, but pretty much everyone wasn't getting as much sleep as they should, and in this culture, it's impossible to go to bed before 11. let's be honest. nobody does. our culture operates its evenings on TV schedule, and good TV ends at 10 at the earliest. in order to get a proper amount of sleep you must be unconscious at 10 at the latest if you're waking up at 6. ain't gonna happen. I can count on one hand the number of people I knew in my graduating class who got as much sleep as they should at night. (there were some, which is almost surprising that any teenager can go to bed at 10 on school nights).

people our age need sleep more than anyone else and at our age we are less predisposed to being "morning people." so as a result? everyone loads up on coffee from age 15-on, making Starbucks the biggest company in the goddam country (I'm convinced Starbucks is the reason HS start times haven't been changed already). newsflash, coffee is bad for you. caffeine is bad for you. yet we're forced into it; it's either coffee or Cs.

and what's with making HS so damn long, anyway? in college you get 3 hours of a class per week. in high school you got 4-5. what's the big idea here? the **** they're teaching us ain't THAT hard. most of class time is wasted anyway. just an excuse to keep us in the building for 7 hours. make school 5 hours. starts at 9:30, ends at 3. so easy.

lol 3 hours a week my ass...

I will agree with you but I never had to wake up at 6am. I woke up at 7am. Go to bed by at least 11:30 everynight and you're set.

Making the HS school day start later would f*** up the sports schedules. Don't freshman games start at 3:30, JV at 5:30, and Varsity at 7 or 7:30? Nobody is trying to go to watch a basketball game at 9:30 PM.

9-3 for me. It's a pretty happy medium as far as I'm concerned, for getting out early enough to still be able to do something afterwards and not having to get out of bed at the crack of dawn each and every morning.

Just make the day shorter. Start at 9 and finish at 3, no need to be in school as early as 7 in the morning, that's rediculous not to mention that it must be a b!tch to concentrate or even stay awake for that matter.
