For the first time in recent years, all four of high schools are on the same schedule. Here’s a sampling of the initial feedback I’ve been receiving regarding the new 4×8 high school schedule:
- It feels calmer for our daughter and family. There’s more time to prepare before the next class meets.
- My son is able to take AP physics now at another district high school that offers it.
- Homework brings some stress and anxiety for my child. It did last year and is again this year, now with 8 classes instead of 7. I’m learning that finding the right balance of courses, between electives and AP, for example, is important for my child. And, it’s helpful to have an extra day to prepare before the next set of classes meets again.
- The new classes are awesome!
What’s been your experience so far with the 4×8 schedule?
I look forward to your comments!
