Classes at Hull High School start at 7:25 a.m. Meaning on an average school day a student from Hull High would have to wake up at around 6 a.m. to get ready for school, and catch the bus to learn for a full 7 hours. After learning for 7 hours most students have to go attend after school activities, which usually last for 2-3 hours. Once attending school activities students come home to a handful of school work that averagely take around 1-4 hours to complete. Some students from Hull High have claimed they've had to stay up till 12 a.m. in order to complete their homework. It has been claim by scientist that teens need an average of 8.5 to 9.5 hours of sleep at night, though the daily school routine doesn't allow the average Hull High student to have those 8.5 to 9.5 hours of sleep. In general it is difficult for most teens to go to sleep early enough to get sufficient rest before an early school start time. Sleep deprivation increases the risk of health problems such as obesity, depression and substance abuse, and also impairs students abilities to concentrate and learn new material. The mental and physical health of students should be the highest priority of our schools. It is time to speak up and make a difference. Hull High School Students are calling to make immediate changes, so that school can start at a healthier time.

-by starting school earliar that doesn't means we end school later
