BHS students are given 5 minutes between classes. Last year, we were a 10-12 high school and only half the seniors were there at a time, and the hallways were manageable and 5 minutes for a passing time was a decent time. This year, however, we became a full 9-12 high school which made the hallways extremely crowded, and 5 minutes just does not suffice under those conditions, especially if you have a class in the E wing or the F/G/H wing and have to go all the way to the other side of the building, in a hallway jammed full of kids and it's not quite a quick walk.

I think the passing time should be increased from 5 minutes to at least 6 or 7 minutes so students are given sufficient time to go between classes, use the restroom, go to their locker, get a drink, etc.
