- I'm a 15 year old student in my sophomore year of high school. I receive about 7 hours of homework a day from A.P. chemistry, Pre A.P. English, Spanish 2, and Accelerated pre calculus. I am usually unable to compleate all of my homework and it has started to affect my sleep habits. I get home, do homework, then sleep. My suggestion is to talk to your teachers and see if they can help you shorten your workload somehow, either staying after school, or going to school early for help.

Tons of homework
- I have tons of homework. I have homework in every subject and it's only been about a week into school. I got off the bus and started on it that was about 3:30 and now it's 7:15 and I'm still not done! I'm only in sixth grade!

A little Crazy
- I'm a 15 year old student, not a tween but whatever. I get around 2 hours a night but I'm in 9th grade. Sometimes I'll spend more or less if it's easy or hard, but in math I'll spend lots of time, other subjects, not so much. I'll say on weekends they give a bit much, but my school is very academic too.. Next year I'd expect a bit more work as I'm entering high school.. But yeah it's a bit much to ask for! They throw too many assignments in a given week, and it's stressful on me too. The problems I have encountered in middle school.. My experience has been awful and I'm failing a core right now. Middle school is rough, but I'm glad it's almost over.
