What time should school start? Should the high school switch times with the middle school? What would happen if it does? High starts early for a reason. The time should not switch with the middle school because too many activities would be disrupted. High school sports would have to be done before school. If students are too tired from waking up so early, they should go to bed earlier. High school should not switch times with the middle school. Middle school students have less homework, so if they get home later in the day they will still have time to finish it before dinner. As much as some students may want the time change between the schools, it would be detrimental to students if it were to happen.
