Barbszy, your big ds's schedule sounds a lot more sane and reasonable than our high schools. I look at my ds' schedule and the classes are shorter and there is those short "breaks for Connect 10 etc. which is new and I am not even sure how useful it will be. In our high school, students only need 1 year of gym to graduate and it may be taken any year. I think that is a disgrace!!! When I was in school we had gym 3 times a week every year of high school the whole school year. No wonder so many kids struggle with obesity. In Middle School, you take 1 quarter of gym each year so that isn't any better but you don't get recess either.
