    I went to a southern US public high school. I woke up at 4:30am every morning to make the bus at 5:30, as I was the first stop on an hour-long route. The first bell rang at 7:15. Classes were 45 minutes long with a 30-minute lunch. The last bell rang at 2:15pm. The bus would drop me off at home at about 3:15 to 3:30, depending on traffic and how many other kids had decided to ride that day. Once home, I would do my chores (clean the kitchen, living room, take care of pets, then tidy my room) until 5pm. I would make dinner for my family after chores. At about 7pm, I would do my homework for about 2 hours. Take a 10-minute shower, then give my self an hour to relax on the internet or read while letting my hair dry. I went to bed no later than 10:30pm most weekday nights.

    I did not participate in any sort of after-school activities and never had a job while in high school, and yet my schedule still did not allow me to spend time with friends on weekdays or even have a full nights sleep without either cutting in on my personal time or on other responsibilities. I cannot imagine how little time to themselves a more involved teenager would have compared to mine.

      I get up at 5:30, get picked up by bus at 7:04, and have classes start at 7:30. Thens its 6-7 subjects ( all at least 45-55 minutes long ) before it ends at 2:25. I have a late bus so I usually get home by 3 o clock unless I have practice, which sometimes ends at 5.

    My school is a sport school, soo I'm training volleyball and I wake up at 7:30 and get ready for training. I leave home at 8:00. My training starts at 8:45, so before that I eat something small, then after the training which finishes at 10:00, I go get ready, because I'm starting school at 10:30. I get dress up for 15 minutes then go to eat again and go to school. My classes ands at 12:50am and I have lunch at my cafeteria. I give 5 dollars (I'm not American,so I'm saying dollars) to food for a week. Then I have training again. It's starts at 1:45 pm and ands at 3:00, I get ready for school again, it's starts at 3:30. I finish at 6:00pm and go home. Have a shower and do my homework and get my bag ready for tomorrow. I go to sleep around 10-11pm a clock.
    Thursday and Friday I have no school after 3:30, so I go home, but at Thursdays I have English projects, so I stay at school after I finish

  • She doesn’t Even go here

    At my school in Alaska it’s super depressing in the winter we start at 750 so it’s still dark and we end at 220 but most have after school things to do like work or sports so the three hours or so of light is spent at a desk doing work. A lot of kids are depressed and tried because of this. The schools started to stop using the over head lights and use lamps and string lights and ever room has a happy light witch helps with moods. It kind of sucks going to school here

    Generally, in South Korea, high school students gotta go to school around by 7am(it depends) and come back home around at 11pm. They keep studying even after - until like 2-3am. Sadly, a lot of them are having a serious depression in reality.
