Having Finals Before Break is a Good Thing

Having finals before break can help students be more successful

Finals before break is a touchy topic for high schoolers due to a shorter summer.

While some students are upset with having their summer cut short, it is ultimately a good thing. With finals being after break, many students struggle.

This is partly due to students forgetting the information they previously learned while on break. Also, a majority of students are not going to study while on break. Studying while on break doesn’t sound like the most fun thing for many. With finals before break many students will actually study, and it will be the last schoolwork they have to worry about before break. With finals after break, students have to worry about it while on break.

Students will most likely be more successful on finals when finals end before winter break this year. Students will also look forward to winter break more since they are halfway through the school year.

“I like that when we come back from break, the new semester starts and we are not burnt out,” said junior Drew Demarini.

Having finals before break will also help when coming back to school. Students will have a fresh start and are refreshed for the new semester. With the old system, students would get very burned out and struggle with the workload, but the new system will help kids keep up with their classes.

The school year also started earlier this year which has upset many students. Summer was cut short, which many think is unfair.

The school year ends in May this year, which is earlier than normal. Many students don’t really care about these finals since they are so far away.

“I think this new format is going to help many students improve on their finals and overall have better grades,” said junior Nathan Dutchover.

There are many who have a positive feeling towards the new finals schedule but there is also many who have a negative feeling. Only time will tell with the impact it has on students.

If the new schedule positively helps students, it will stay, but if students do worse, it will leave many to wonder if that is due to the new schedule.
