At Salesian High School, we have a modified block schedule. All academic classes meet four times a week, with three days of all seven periods for approximately 45 minutes. On Wednesday and Thursday, our ‘Block days’, three to four periods meet for eighty minutes. Our schedule also reflects a rotating order of class periods so students and teachers can benefit from not always having the same class first thing in the morning or right before lunch. This tumbling schedule provides students and teachers with a variety of class meeting times during the course of a week that may expand the opportunities for assessment, a field trip, or just a new perspective on a class based on a different time of the day. Our second and seventh periods are the only frozen blocks of the day. The Community Time period scheduled for Wednesday afternoon accommodates guest speakers, student assemblies, rallies, prayer services, Faith Family activities etc. (see the sample bell schedule tab)
