  • Yes school should start later

    Students are extremely stressed in the morning and are rushing to get to school on time! That way they don't have a good breakfast they don't have time to review their studies and they get to school tired and depressed! Sometimes even with all that they are still late! If school would start 45 min later and end 45 min later all that could be stopped! Students would get more sleep, would have a good breakfast, would have time to review their studies thus getting better marks and they would even be less depressed! Just shifting the school time by 45 min would make a huge difference and solve countless problems!! I believe that all schools who are not already starting at 9:00 should make the change today!!

  • I honestly agree. I am not saying that we have to start at like noon but at least like 9:00 A.M

    I am a high school student who has troubles staying awake through class in the morning because school starts so early. I think it would be healthier for the students because they will be getting more sleep and your mood is greatly affected by the amount of sleep you get.

  • Of course it should

    I have observed my sister in high school. She sleeps at about 3 o'clock and wakes up at 7'oclock that is only 4 hours of sleep. If her school started later and ended a little later she would be ready to learn and not ready to fall asleep in class.

  • Schools start to early

    YES because students are failing classes and falling asleep in class just because school starts to early. For students who's school starts at 7:00, they can't even get out of bed because they are so tired. School may end later but it depends mostly on students health, if students don't get enough sleep they can get sick easily and miss out from school. LET SCHOOL START LATER IN THE DAY!!!!!

  • Yes they should!

    Because high school students have lots of homework and if they have any after school activities they have to finish all their homework late at night and have very little sleep. Many students who sleep late and get up early fall asleep in class. Many students also doze off during class and don't concentrate.

  • Yes they sh ould

    I am a student and I am tired everyday. Our morning bell rings at 8:45 and I'm still tired. I cant believe how it is for high schoolers. Also it must be a pain for the parents to drive them to school every morning. School should be enjoyable so we can actually be active and ready to learn

  • People are tired and need more sleep.

    We should be able to be in class and understand what we are learning instead of sleeping in class. Its already hard to wake up and get on going because you're too tired. It's not easy for students our age. We need more sleep to be able to have a better school day.

  • Yes, they should!

    When children wake up earlier than they are supposed to they can fail in school. Parents get mad when their child gets bad grades but most of the time the cause is because they are tired not because they are just simply not paying attention. If children dont get their recommended amount of sleep it can cause them to get depressed easier or a lack of tolerance for others. Most children get angry and aggressive really quick when they wake up early and can bully others. Waking up early can also cause children to fail their classes because they either fall asleep or simply cannot pay attention. Some schools that have tried later starting times and have reported better grades, and they get along better.

  • School is way too early.

    If you want students to concentrate more and be attentive we should go into school later. Everyone would be early to class and not fall asleep in subjects, there would also be a big change in our grades because of getting more sleep. I think there would be a very big change in everything.

  • Yes, they should.

    Yes because kids are such in a rush they don't have enough time to eat or even make breakfast for the day and kids aren't getting good grades enough that they don't want to go to collage because they don't think they could do it witch do you think is better focused or unfocused and trashing there lives?

  • There's no point in starting later.

    Most teenagers ranging from 15+ years old only need about 7 hours of sleep. If you can manage to get more sleep at night, then you should be set. Just because a couple of students can't manage to wake up and be ready to start their day when told doesn't mean the whole school should just move up their start times.

  • No

    School is fine the way it is. If you went later that would put kids that are in sports home later and they would be missing supper times, homework time, and family time. There is no reason to start later. People have to get up and go to work early all the time. No reason kids can't do that in school

  • It would be a shorter school day.

    Since the school day is shorter, the students would learn less. If the don't learn a lot as kids they won't grow up and get good jobs. It would also eventually make kids tell their parents that they could stay up later because the school day starts later. My last reason is because the kids might not want to go to school later.

  • No way jose

    If you start late, you end late. If the student has after school activities, they would get in the way. Every middle school should get out at 2;30 and start at 7;40, its a true fact JACK! Oh By the way i live in the ocean and im a purple octopus

  • The lesson would have an effect if school starting times stay the same.

    The best way to learn a lesson is not always the best. So in this case teens would take advantage of the fact that school starts late and loiter around till midnight. Then the next day the teens would complain to start school even later. And they will take advantage of that. It just goes on forever!

  • Really it would still be the same

    The fact of starting school late will make especially teens want to make advantage of it. They will start partying or do anything except to study until midnight or later. Also in the real world you are expected to come to work early. So if you sleep late you can't just go to your boss complaining that you didn't get enough sleep. Most teens would go to sleep to the classroom thinking that they can do it later and it won't have any effect to them that they are sleeping in class. Well in the real world it's not the same. If you go a to sleep during work your boss would eventually catch you and fire you. And if he catches you not working, you won't receive your paycheck and you need money to sustain yourself

  • Schools should not start earlier!

    1: Starting later means ending later. That takes time away from sports, clubs, or any other activities a teen might have. In addition, the teens that work would be working later. If the teens are working late or their clubs and activities end late, they are driving home in the dark and that increases the chance of them getting in a car accident. Also, starting earlier would be extremely expensive for schools. Making just a little change for the school bus schedule can cost the school a lot of money. This means the school will have to cut back on the other school needs. For example: electricity, or even school activities like school sports. Schools should start at the same time!

  • Definitely Not man

    If kids are used to getting up early in the school, then they most likely will still get up early sooooo.... Also, after school activities are scheduled at a certain time for a certain reason. Also getting out later disrupts family time and the schedule that the student has for after school.

  • School days should not start later!

    Imagine watching the sun go down but you are still in school waiting to go home. If school starts later that means it is going to be dismissed later so you won’t have any time after school to do anything. It would be a waste of time if school started later because it would make kids that are in any activities or sports after school come home later which means not eating dinner or eating it late. The problem with eating dinner late is that you shouldn't eat dinner within an hour before going to sleep because it causes people to gain weight. Also if school days started later they might not do\finish their homework, also most people like to hang out with friends and maybe go to the library or and even have plans.
