A Usual Day
The school bus would come to my neighborhood at
7:40
, we get to school a bit past
8
and class starts at
8:30
. If you are a junior or senior, you can drive to school.
If you arrive after 8:20, the doors are locked, and you have to go to the security office to show your school ID with a 10-digit number and bar-code to get in.

There's breakfast served everyday, and many kids who come from low income families get free lunch eat breakfast in school. Since there are so many students there are 4 different lunch times in the day.
There are
1900
kids in the school, nearly
600
kids in my grade, and around
31
kids per class. We have four
90
-minute classes a day. We have those same
4
classes everyday until the semester is over in mid-January.
Teachers teach
one
subject, and the students have that teacher
one
semester for 90 minutes a day, so students don't usually know their teachers very well.
School ends at
3
and if I take the bus home, I don't get there until
4:20
from traffic
