Default Middle & High School schedules

Do your kids have a regular schedule with the same classes at the same times each day?

Rachel's school has this screwy rotation. There are 8 periods.
Day 1: periods 1,3,5,7 in that order
Day 2: 2,4,6,8
Day 3: 3,5,7,1
Day 4: 4,6,8,2
Day 5: 5,7,1,3
and so on so the classes are at different times each day.
Math is periods 1& 2 and English is periods 3&4 so they have those 2 classes daily.
Lunch is always during the 3rd class of the day but there are 3 different times so it gets changed daily. The teachers write it on the board and they have a copy of the schedule in their planner.

anybody else have a wacky schedule?

Wow that is crazy. My kids have the same classes at the same time every day. I would hate having classes at different times everyday and I would hate for my child to have that as well. Are all the middle schools like that or just that school?

We call that a rotating schedule around here. They are wonderful adn the kids get used to them. It's handy so that kids with sports early release don't miss the same class, snow delays don't kill the same classes and holidays don't always get the Friday or Monday classes.

Kids also perform better in the morning, so the rotating schedule helps each teacher get a bit of strong learning time.

We had an A-F day schedule that had stepped rotations of the periods.
So an A day would have periods 1-8, then a B day would go 2-3-4-5-6-7-8-1, and a C day would go 3-4-5-6-7-8-1-2.....

It was pretty cool!
Much harder on the teachers and keeping supplies organized than kids.

I was told this is why they do it this way. I don't know if all the Middle Schools here do it or not.

Something else wacky - there are no lockers so students are assigned textbooks that stay at home and there is a set in the classroom. I guess its cheaper to buy more texbooks than lockers.
