I did'nt know that any schools in the country had school days that long.
I am in High School, my school starts at 7:30am and ends at 2:00pm.
It works out fine for me.
As for why they don't start at noon, well because we'd have to be
in school until the early eveneing and no one wants to be in school
during that part of the day.

They said they get up at 6 and get home at 4. They didn't say they were in school that long.
School should probably run from 12-5, no lunch, a few breaks, everything would be taught. The kids have all meals served at home (saving the district money), you're normally more alert during this time....
The reason we don't have it? It would interrupt everything else that is 'standard'. Parents work schedules, taxes, teachers salaries, etc.
