  • The start time is radically later than most high schools. Research indicates that high school students, and teenagers in general, perform better with a later start. High schools are often pressured to start the day earlier to accommodate athletics in the afternoon. Sports and activities play a vital role in the development of many children, but they should not drive the schedule of the school.


  • The later start allows for many clubs and activities to meet before school. Additionally, faculty/professional development could take place before school. The issue of time is always critical to staff development and traditional pressures make the task difficult.

  • The late start allows students to experience a wider variety of activities. If clubs have their meeting times before school, then student-athletes are more able to participate in non-athletic, co-curricular activities.

  • To meet the needs of families, the building would be open beginning at 6:30 AM as is currently the operating standard. Bus transportation will continue to be offered.
