I am not a parents, but a former student at that school. Here's a little inside look at the daily life when I attended: The school is made up of 7 classes which are regulated on an odd day/ even day schedual. You attend your 1st period every day, then if it is an even day you attend 2, 4, and 6th period, or if it is an odd day you attend 3, 5, and 7th periods. Each class is 100 minutes long, and you get a 7 minute passing period, which, given the over 4000 students on campus, gives you just barely enough time to travel the 1 mile two and from classes to the next. Lunches, well there are 2 of them. With two caffeterias. Jocks and Cheer leaders on one side, Mexican's and Blacks somewhere in the middle, Asians down in the aphitheater and pot heads, rockers, dweebs, geeks, freaks, and the ones that dont fit in, on the other side. Most classes have 30 + students and thats putting it lightly. My choir had darn near 75 students the first year! Yes our school is new, and I am glad to have gotton out of there with the rest of my 678 member class. I find it unfortunate that my middle sisters class is 1000+ and my youngst sisters is 1500+. But we need to weed out the 'Boundry Jumpers' I have friends that bus out from Vallejo, Benicia, even San Ramon! Common guys, get out of my school and into your own!
