Do not take any more than 5 minutes to answer this question.
What is something this school really needs? Why?

This school needs to consider having school began at 8:30 & end at 3:00. I suggest this takes place because students will be able to make it to school on time rather 7:56. The Freshmen at Campus 9 are to arrive at school before 8:45 and they get out of school at 3:02. I find that to be strange because were older than them. So hopefully my idea will take action....
