Re: Next Year's WHS Schedule

At the high school, Guidance Department director A.J. Beebe and Assistant Principal Kim Smith said that scheduling changes would be taking place there as well, with one 75-minute block built into each day.

Although the number of class periods will be extended from five to six, students will still have the same number of classes to choose from when building their schedules. Beebe and Smith said that each class would meet five times in a six-day cycle.

The extended schedule will allow time for more interactive activities and lab time for science classes.

Lunch times will also change, with the first lunch wave starting at 11 a.m. rather than the current time of 10:06 a.m.

In addition, the homeroom period will be restored and the common “D” block will be retained. This period is constant each day and can accommodate class assemblies.

“I really think this is going to be something that’s very workable,” said member Chris Callanan. - Wakefield Observer

Homeroom everyday is kind of pointless.


  1. That... actually seems sort of intelligent (other than the homeroom, I assume that was to take up five minutes). Now kids won't have to sit in a lecture for EVERY class for 72 minutes, there will be a decent amount of time for labs, etc.

  2. Will there still be a lab period or will having the class everyday do justice for that?

  3. At least we can still pronounce days 2 and 5 phonetically!
