Short or long periods?

From middle school to my first year of high school I grew to the comfort of block schedule.

Three classes a day for two hours. There were benefits from it like having more time in class to finish assignments or homework wouldn’t be due the next day. The thing I dislike about it is that every class is about two hours and sitting for two hours straight can be very draining.

I went around school and asked two students on how do they feel about block schedule and which do they prefer, normal or block schedule?

TCA Senior Giselle Santiago said, “I prefer block schedule because we get time to catch up on work and as a senior it really piles up.”

PAM Senior Daisy Pinto said, “I feel like the block schedule is better because you don’t go to all six classes and feel stressed about multiple assignments due the next day and if your in a class you like you should have no problem.”

I personally don’t like block schedule because I don’t like being stuck with the same people for two straight hours. I like seeing other people and having different conversations throughout the day.
