Hrm... We have air conditioning... When they use it...
I got to an all-girls Catholic high school. Uniform skirt and blouse, socks, shoes, everything. (Attention guys: Get that thought out of your heads-
It's not as great as you think it is). It's actually quite ridiculous- Many of the girls neglect to wake up in the morning because there aren't
any boys-- Brushing hair is apparently futile, because hair is apparently supposed to look like a mop anyways.
Schedule-wise I love it. Instead of a block schedule or periods or something, we have what we call mods.
Each mod is 20 minutes and we
have 20 mods in a day. A class can be made up of 2, 3, or 4 mods depending on which class it is (aka, lecture or lab, or whatever the teacher sees
fit). It actually allows for more "off-time," because we can possibly have any random mod off. Most classes are scheduled to three mods though,
making it an hour-long class. So the bell for each mod rings every 20 minutes, but you don't leave class because the bell rang!!! I love to see the
annoyed look on teachers faces when they have to stop lecturing for three seconds for the mod bell! It's actually quite a lovely system once you
learn the secrets (MOD 11 starts at 11:00 on a regular schedule day).
