Ooooold thread! XD I'm still gonna post.

So, I start school at 8:50 in the morning every weekday. We have to wear uniform all year round, but it changes. And we leave school at 3:30, getting home about 4.

In Summer we wear a polo shirt with a green jumper which you're allowed to take off, and then a black pair of trousers or a skirt with tights. Then in winter it's a shirt and tie with trousers or a skirt and tights, again.

We have Yr. 7 to Yr. 11 at my school, and we all have to wear a uniform. That's from the age of 11 to the possible age of 16. Yeah.

We have no more than 560 students, and my school specialises in Arts and Drama, so that means we do more arty and dramatic sort of things more than other schools will.

Break is 15 minutes and then lunch is 50, and we have 6 50 minute lessons.

The most amount of floors we have is two, and we have teh option of doing Spanish or French.

From about a week ago, we now have houses, and I'm in the blue house, the awesomest one! XD The red house looks like a christmas tree because the school colour is green. Mehehe.

Oi, I'm finally in middle school. Took long enough.

School's from 8:30 to 3:00, dismissal at 2:30 on Wednesdays. The first bell, which rings at 8:15, tells you that you can go on campus/open your lockers and stuff. The second bell, at 8:28, is the warning bell, telling you that class will start soon. At 8:30, the last bell rings, signalling that you're late if you're out in the halls. There's a bell each period, and for three periods you have the same teacher for Core, i.e. English/L.A., Reading and Social Studies. P.E. is every other week, and on the weeks you don't have P.E., you have Exploratives, like Drama or Art or something. Every other Wednesday you run a mile in P.E., which has me like O.o. We have a fifteen minute recess after second period and a five-minute break in the middle of fourth period, and lunch is at 12:30 I think. Right now I'm in sixth grade/Year Six, and our school is from sixth-eighth grade. Um what else...well my school is supposed to specialize in the academics and all of the teachers give you random lectures about alcohol and smoking.

We have a thousand students, and no, that's not an estimate, and I find that rather strange, seeing as my old school was K-8th grade and only had 600 students.

Our stage is the awesomest stage ever; tis a huge auditorium with nice curtains and a nice wooden stage, plus a nice indoor balcony with a spiraling staircase leading up to it, which makes me think of Hogwarts. Our school is big, even though it's only 1 floor (minus the balcony), meaning it's more spread out. We have a nice wide field and a basketball court, and our gym is huge and shiny.

The buildings are separated into halls. A-Hall is where the sixth graders have most of their classes, and also is where most of the sixth graders have their lockers. There's B-Hall, where the office and nice, big lockers are, mostly for seventh and eighth graders but some sixth graders. There's E-Hall, where exploratives are held, and other halls that I don't know are what for.

Every morning there are announcements shown on the TV, except the quality is not as good as, I dunno, Zach's video editing skills (that guy is wizard). We have a lot of extracurricular activities, like Drama (guess who's trying out~!), Sports (Cross country, volleyball, basketball, track, baseball, flag football, badminton, and others), Leadership (I heard it sucks though), music (they took away violin though~!), and much others. Oh and there are a lot of dances.

The only downside is that there are clans. Much of them. Every school has cliques, I mean, but in my school they're so intense I call them clans.

Wow, Dana. Your middle school sounds strange compared to mine. Granted there was only 200 or so students in each graduating class.

Only three hundred kids in my middle school, and then there is 400 in elementary! And in elementary you could be friends with whoever you wanted, now, if you are friends with someone from the oposite gender, it is a real mess. Drives me nuts, because most of my friends are the oposite gender, so I am a mess. Not to mention the dweebs all around my locker...the most "cute" guy's locker is right under mine (just my luck) and that means it is always surrounded by reallly girly girls flirting with him. And he went to my old school too...ugh...feels like your typical stereo type middle school. All the different cliques, all the rumors, the gossip...eck...

Whoa. I can't believe this thread is two years old.

Alright well stuff about my school is up there. *points upwards* But this year, I'm auditioning to get into this fancy arts high school. Yes, you have to audition to get in, and it's a very rigorous process. Since I'm trying out for the Creative Writing course, I have to submit a portfolio of ten poems, two essays, three short stories, and one five-to-ten-page play. Also, I need to include a letter of recommendation and my report card.

Once that's done, the fun begins. This March, I have to actually go to my audition. First, I'm interviewed. Afterwards, I have to write on the spot using a prompt given to every student that day.

Yup. It's pretty much like college. LOL.

Me too. Three more years until college. Actually, I am going to take dual-credit classes my junior and senior year while I am still doing High School . . . so one or two years . . . Eeep!

I am Home Schooled. I am on a Varsity Girl team and Middle School girl team this year in Basketball. This is a schedule of what this semester will be like:

Mondays:
Get up at 5:30am, get ready really quickly, then drive to Varsity Girl Basketball practice. Get out of practice at 8:30am, then go home, take a shower, study a bit, eat lunch, then head to a co-op school I go to on Mondays. Get out of co-op at 4:15pm, then head home. Do some homework, eat dinner, then head to the Middle School Girl Basketball practice. Get out of practice at 8:30pm and head home. Get ready for bed, then go to S-L-E-E-P.

Tuesdays:
Start school at about 9:30am. I always do school at my awesome desk. I do all the normal academic subjects, plus art, and two electives: Economics and Astronomy. School will take about six hours, not including lunch. So I'll be finished at 4:30. After school, take a break, then take an Algebra 1 test. (I do a math test every week on Tuesdays). After that, I chill a bit.

Wednesdays:
Get up at 5:30am again to do another Varsity girl practice. After I get home at 9am, I start school. Here's some repetitiveness; end school at 4:30. Study a bit for Physical science, do any extra co-op Homework.

Thursdays:
SCHOOL: 9:30 to 4:30 as usual. Then naturally, STUDY, then eat dinner, then head to Middle School Girl Basketball practice, and get home at 8:30pm.

Fridays:
SCHOOL: 9:30 to . . . you guessed it! 4:30pm. Wow, I bet you'll never guess what comes next. Study? Maybe. Every three weeks I have a Physical Science test on Friday. If not this friday, I study. If it is this Friday, then I take the test.


Yep. So that's a normal schedule for me. That does not include any Basketball games that would be in the evenings, or personal social activities and events, or any extra school activity I need to accomplish. Or any personal things like Writing, drawing, ect.

Anyway. There is Mallori Sparke's Home School schedule for this semester.
