The schedules vary depending on what grade youre in. All
classes start at 8:30 AM. All kids get a 5 to 10 minute break
in between consecutive classes. The kids in elementary
school get recess, but middle and high schools do not. In
both schools, they have to help clean the class after lunch
for a clean environment to work in afterwards. All
elementary schools get out at about 3 PM, but they have a
choice of an after school club (optional however). All middle
schools usually end at around 5 PM.

and have some knowledge of basic solid
geometry.
