We all strive for higher scores in school. A four-day week may provide just that. Students have more time on school days, giving them the opportunity to learn more each and every hour they spend in their classrooms. Even teachers have more time to learn from their peers about their lessons and ways of teaching, so they can improve it to fit their students. A four-day school week may provide higher quality resources, as there are only four days to use them. It saves the school financially in times of low budgets, and that unscheduled day saves at least 1.5% more than schools who stick to the regular five-day week. The mediocre quality of supplies gradually decreases as more weeks spent as a four-day week slowly increase. Students with four-day school weeks had proven themselves they deserved that schedule with their academic scores, which have increased throughout the year. They have better attendance, because they have more time for extracurricular activities and appointments outside of school. A four-day school week may be just what we need.
Stress on the body can lead to deeper and bigger problems such as depression. Depression in students is a very serious problem and coming on the rise. A group of economists at the Brookings Institute on schoolstarttime.org concluded that, “Students at later starting schools get more sleep, perform better academically, have significantly fewer automobile accidents, report greater motivation and less depression, experience fewer physical health difficulties, are less likely to be tardy or truant, demonstrate better performance in attention level, impulsivity, and rate of performance.” This shows how stress from more homework, less time to do it, and less sleep can lead to many bigger problems and even more problems in the future. The findings from the results of this experiment show that this can be monitored and fixed by making school start at a later time, causing less stress, more sleep, and better lives for the adolescent students in the United States of America.
Students need time away from their teachers and other students to relieve the stress of going to school everyday for so many weeks. Students need time of freedom, instead of their teachers instructing them through everything they do in the day. Students need time to make their own decisions instead of their teachers making them for
Transitioning from the middle school to the high school is a big change for a student. When we moved to the high school, we thought freshman Friday's would be all year and that it would be very difficult to find our classes. However, freshman Friday's only last the first couple weeks, and there are lots of link leaders to help the freshies find their classes. School is a big deal here in the high school. 8th graders should follow our tips if they want to be successful in the high school.

Transitioning has always been a difficult for me. My freshmen year of high school experiences varied from disappointment, to complete chaos. Freshmen year of high school is tough, you worked yourself to the top to be placed in the bottom again. Not to mention middle school and high school are two different types of environments. I was aware that they were two different types of environments, so when my middle school offered a summer course at Carl Hayden High School I took the opportunity to help me adjust. The course was a reading comprehension class, I did not need help with my reading comprehension but took it to get a feel of how high school would be. Judging high school by one course was ignorant of me to do. From that short experience

Middle school is known as a time to mature for high school. For me, there were many changes I underwent after coming to the middle school.
In regards to school, most students loath just about every aspect of it. Five brutal days of tests, mind numbing lectures, and bounteous amounts of homework that they must turn in the next day, is very overwhelming to most. By the time the fifth day rolls around, some students are so fatigued that they cannot focus on the various tasks at hand. The solution-a four day week. A shortened week could help to improve overall productivity of students and save the school money. Plus the additional day off could be used to ease the minds of frazzled students.
