What are the common start and ending dates for a school year in sixth form? by mandagal1212 Q: In the United States a school year usually begins in late August/early September and then ends in early June. What are the usual dates for the sixth form schools in the UK? Thanks!

A: well i went to this UK school in China and it started around the same time maybe a little earlier and then it ends around the last day of June. But thats because they have way more breaks during the school year.

What happens if you fail your junior year of high school? by ssnco_uahn Q: I'm a junior in high school and the school year is going to be over in a week... I'm currently failing all of my classes... Can I make up all the classes in summer school and still graduate in time?

Ways to convince parents to let 16 year old have a job during the School year? by Q: I was just talking to my Mom about getting a job when I turn 16, I am currently 15, during the school year. She said I could only have a job during the Summer.. I am trying to make money to pay for a car. Any ideas to convince my mom? I think it may be a trust issue. I slacked in School for a while but now I am back on track, but I think she is scared that during the School year, if I have a job, I'll slack again. That won't happen. And ideas how to prove this?

A: do not what so ever work now, if you have someone who can support you then please pay attention to school, when you grow up you will pay them back because at that time you can be an engineer from paying attention to school or a doctor..etc

What would happen to a 15 year old caught selling hard drugs to other students in high school? by Emma Q: What would happen if a 15 year old male in gr 10 was finally caught selling hard drugs (cocaine) to alot of other kids in school and has been apparently selling since the very starting of the school year? Was selling grams of cocaine for 70 dollars to students, sold about 4 grams a day, and was also selling anabolic steroids to some students for sports? would he be expelled, charges made?

A: Wow. Most likely juvie time. The least is out of school.

How do I not be shy during the new school year? by Q: I've always been shy all my life. But in the past year I've been especially shy. Its gone to the point of feeling uncomfortable talking. I'm fine talking with close friends, its just school and places like that. Last year was one of the worst years ever because of it. With the new school year in a couple days, I want to out grow my shyness but its hard because it seems I cant think of things to say. Please help.

Do any girls have to wear black opaque tights all year at school or for work? by Q: I have to wear black 40 deniers with a navy skirt all school year, even summer term. Was wondering if black opaques are compulsory for any other girls/women at school or worK? And does anyone stay in tights from morning til bedtime after school or work?

A: Get a good brand and enjoy the experience as much as you can. Black tights accentuate the legs nicely. Law professionals or even females in finance often wear hose in the office if not wearing a pants suit.

What are you most excited for the upcoming school year? by Singergrl Q: I know it can be sad to think about school starting, and me and my friends were talking about how fast the new school year is approaching. It's kinda sad cuz the summers ending, but is there anything you're looking forward to about the new school year? Or anything you plan on changing for the new school year? Right now for me...the only good thing I can think about is shopping for school lol. I kind of like going out getting new clothes and school supplies. What about you guys?

A: stolkked for grading! but at the same time sad.. :( im excited to see everyonee!

What would happen to a 15 year old caught selling hard drugs to other students in high school? by Emma Q: What would happen if a 15 year old male in gr 10 was finally caught selling hard drugs (cocaine) to alot of other kids in school and has been apparently selling since the very starting of the school year? Was selling grams of cocaine for 70 dollars to students, sold about 4 grams a day, and was also selling anabolic steroids to some students for sports? would he be expelled, charges made?

A: What im interested in knowing is has it happened or is it going to happen? How on earth do the kids afford $70 for the drugs when they are 15?! Do mum and dad know about the drugs?! If it was my old school they would be expelled charged and end up in some kind of juvenile correctional jail for X amount of years and hopefully if the justice system is working to get drugs and dealers off the streets and out of our childrens arms and noses then he will be prosecuted as an adult not just a child because he knows better than to sell drugs and the kids that are buying the drugs need a good swift kick up the @$$ for buying the drugs and steroids! Parents need to take a closer look at their childrens behavior and if they are parenting they should know somethings not right! Me personally if it was my son selling and or buying I would kick his @$$ to whoop whoop and back again and then send him to rehab and then jail just to make a point!

Are teachers allowed to quit during the school year? by phalangie07 Q: I am a currently employed as a teacher in a public school district. I can never remember teachers leaving in the middle of the year. Are we allowed to do so (I imagine we would have to be). If so, does anyone know the proper steps to take? Do I give two weeks notice, as in other jobs? Is there someone I should contact to ask the specifics? If anyone is a teacher who has quit or thought about quitting during a school year, please advise.

A: It depends. Did you sign a teaching contract? If so, you may not be able to get out of it. If you're just employed at-will (no contract), then you can quit. The private schools here are at-will employment, while the public schools are contract. So, private school teachers can quit whenever, while public school teachers are stuck for the duration of the school year. You'll have to contact your school board of directors for details. Best of luck!

When does the school year in London start? by Q: Like how the school year starts in August here in California. When does it start in London?

A: primary and secondary schools start early september, same with colleges and sixth forms. Universities start late september (around the 20th) but there is freshers week before that (no lectures)

Can you switch to homeschooling at any time during the school year? by LilB Q: I really don't like my new school, so i was wondering if you could switch to homeschooling any time during the year, or if you had to wait till the end of the school year. Also, how long does the process of signing up take? Any information is accepted, and thank you for all of the help!

A: I know where I live I switched a week before semester testing. I was having serious medical problems though that caused me to miss too many days of school. So I would of failed semester tests and had to redo that whole semester. I wasn't guaranteed to make it through high school with the problems I was having. It turns out my next door neighbor was home schooled. My mom went up to the school got some paper work and filled it out. I turned in all my books and on the paper work my mother wrote the subjects I will be studding and for how long and what times. We had it all done within two days. I think you should ask your school councilor they will give you more information. Make sure you do not lose the paper work and you get your grades up to that year. You will need it for college. All this is in Arkansas though so I don't know how it is for your state. Good luck though.

How early can I apply for off-campus housing for the upcoming school year? by Q: I am going to attend a community college for the 2011-2012 school year. This CC doesn't have dorms, so I am going to live in a private off campus dorm hopefully. How early in a school year do they typically start accepting applications for the next year? Any help or advice would be appreciated. Thanks!

A: I don't know of any college that allows non students to live on campus during the school year (housing is usually pretty scarce for the current students). I suggest you email someone in the residential office and ask if this is possible and what the process is.

How much better is sophomore year of high school than freshman year and why? by Q: The school year is almost done, and I'm pretty excited to not be a freshman anymore. How much better is sophomore year than freshman year, and why?

A: You get out of school what you put into it. If you study hard, you will get good grades. If you are nice to everyone, you will have lots of friends. If you get involved in lots of school activities, you will be well balanced. I will admit that the difference in being a sophomore as opposed to a freshman is easier because you have gotten use to the school and kids and you wont be the new class anymore. BUt beyond that, its totally what you do that matters.

Are there any jobs for fourteen year olds during the school year? by Nilly Q: My best friend and I are going to a different high school and I we want to stay in touch with each other. Do you know any jobs for fourteen year olds or things we could do together? Maybe like a club or something?

A: you could start a babysitting , pet walking, pet sitting, or tutor service!

Shopping for school clothes: How many outfits does a 5yr-old girl need to start the school year? by Amy Q: My 5-yr old daughter is starting Kindergarten at the end of the month. I dont want to go overboard with an expensive wardrobe, but I want her to look nice for her first year of school. Any Moms with advice?

A: WEll my son is 5 and going in kidergarten too. I plan to buy him new sneakers and shoes, at least 4 pairs of jeans, a few sweaters and some tshirts. Probably new underwear and socks too. I like to shop at old navy for him becasue they have adorable clothing. My daughter is 8 going in grade 4 and I will probably buy her new bows for hair, shoes, jeans a skirt, sweater a few cute tshirts with sayings on them and new undergraments. Walmart is good because they have a mk and ashley line - barbie and princesses too. Zellers has trolls and hilary duff. Walmart has that garuntee - if it wears out before your child out grows it then they will replace it. Thats always good - just be sure to save receipts. Good luck :)

When does the canadian school year start? by thatdude Q: My family are considering moving to Canada and wanted to know when the canadian school year starts, and about international schools also?

A: i think its slightly different through out the country. in british columbia where i went to school it starts at the beginning of september (usually within the first week) and goes to the end of june. i think in alberta they started in august some time though. international... umm i think the usa would be similar to canada. i live in australia now and the school year runs from the end of january to the end of november.

Is it possible to transfer from home schooling to a public school in the middle of school year? by Q: I was just wondering how long it takes you to transfer your child from home schooling to a public school. What if the year has already started - is it possible to get your kid in the school, say, in October?

A: yes, a child can enroll in public schoo at any time during the school year. The school may require the child to take proficiency level test to place the child in the correct grade level so the child won't be behind the other students.

What is the first semester of the school year? by xophillychik Q: I'm a college sophomore, preparing to transfer schools next year. One of the questions on my application asks me to indicate a list of the courses I am taking this year. Would spring semester be the first semester since it falls right after January (the beginning of the new year? -- or, would fall be the first semester (since it's the beginning of the new SCHOOL year) ?? Please answer only if you are positive.

A: I would say the first semester is the fall semester.

How could I good grades and keep focused during the school year? by Smile... You're Pregnant! Q: I have trouble staying on task during the school year , at the start of the year I do well but as I get more into the school year I get very lazy and do poorly

A: Get busy. There has been a positive correlation between the amount on a student's agenda and their performance in school. Sometimes, when you know that you have the time to take your time, you slack off. When you are busy, you are in a full-force working mode. Of course this depends on who you are, and what your personal studying strategies are. But it might be work a try. Join a sports team, or an activity, that way you won't have time to be lazy.

How easy is it to switch High schools during the school year? by Q: Can I just leave school one week, and go to a new school weeks later and keep on going? Or do I have to wait for the following year to attend?

A: You can change in the middle of the year. I've done it plenty of times when I was in middle school. I've been to 5 different middle schools between the years of 2003 and 2005. I just graduated this year.

How do I change my high school graduation year on Facebook? by k. Q: I picked the wrong high school year on Facebook, and it shows up in my profile. I want to change it to the correct year since it's annoying me, and I shouldn't be in that year. I already tried going to Edit Information, then to Education and Work, but on my profile it still shows the incorrect year. Is there anyway to change it to the right year and that it shows on my profile? If so, can you tell me how? Thank you.

A: I would try going to account settings and going to networks. leaving your high school. then joining again under a new year

Why does the school year in America start mid year? by Thomas T Q: As apposed to Australia for example where the school year starts in February and ends in November? Am assuming because summer falls in between?

A: Because of the importance of farming to the early American settlers, schools were closed in the summer so that the children could tend the crops and do other farm chores. That tradition continues today, but very few children still help on the farm.

Would a longer school year/days equate to a salary increase for teachers and school personnel? by Dave Q: I would much rather he got rid of summer break. I am a future school counselor and I plan on working in the summer. I don't know what I'd do with 2 months of no work each year. Would an extended school year equate to an increased salary for people who work in schools? I'll gladly do it but they better increase pay.

A: I believe I read that an increase of 300 hours was suggested..that equates to 40 some days. There is no way that employees wouldn't be compensated. For a teacher making $40,000, that would be about $9500 per year. I don't see how this plan will ever come to be...there just won't be money to support it. I cannot imagine what it would cost to pay teachers, support staff, utilities, gas for buses...

Does the American school system start halfway through the year? by Iskandar Q: My friend (who used to live in the US) told me that in the American school system, say you were in grade 11, you would finish your school year in the middle of the year and then start 12 the same year after the break. Is this true? I just find this really weird. I had no idea it was like that.

A: Yes. The school system was built around allowing kids to work the harvest on family farms or wherever. So the beginning of the school year is usually mid to late august and runs to late may, early june. There are some school systems that have gone to a different schedule, but this is still the dominant one, even though most kids don't work on farms anymore.

What do you usually do at football practice during the school year? by Trevor Q: I'm in summer workouts as a freshman in JV and boy its hell. Are the coaches more layed back at practice during the school year? Also is practice typically everyday after school? How long is practice usually during the school year? I also like to gel my hair at school, so should I stop? Will I have time to finish my homework, my parents are really strict on grades >< did you guys ever hang out with friends after football practice? So it's harder during the school year? I thought it'd be easier since the coaches want you fresh for games

A: Summer workouts are the worst because they are trying to get you into shape for the season. Our practices always got easier as the season went along because the focus became more on learning and running plays. Our practices ran 2 1/2 to 3 hours. You'll want to at least rinse the gel out of your hair before practice because when you get to sweating it runs onto your face and if it gets in your eyes it burns like hell.

When does your university school year start and end? And when are the breaks? by lauren b Q: I have no idea how a university school year works. I'm so confused. I've heard their are two semesters, and you get a three month break in winter vs summer. But I've also heard it's exactly the same as high school year(starts in September, 2 week break in December, Spring Break in March, 3 month break during summer). Can someone help me out? Has it always been this way? I'm doing a paper on the 1940s, so does anyone know about universities in the 1940s?

A: It depends on the school. Some schools are on semester systems and some are on quarter systems. Here's what I know is true at least in California For the semester system, they typically start in late August or early September. Quarter systems tend to start mid to late September. For both types, winter breaks are typically 3-4 weeks long. Quarter system schools usually get out 2 weeks before Christmas and semester systems get out a week before Christmas. Spring break is usually somewhere in March for both types. And summer for semester systems usually starts in May while it starts mid June for quarter systems. There are 3 quarters (or trimesters) in a year for the quarter system and 2 semesters for the semester system in a year. The breaks are dispersed among the semesters. This is typically how they work in California. I have never heard about getting a 3 month break for winter.

What year of high school are we supposed to take physics? by Q: I moved from the United States, California to Singapore this year and just started school a month ago but as you can guess their curriculum is a litttleee bit advanced. I'm only a sophmore, but the school year here is just about over and this year we did Physics. How many years ahead is this??? The Math is way ahead as well! Will this in any way help me for applying to colleges in the US?

A: Well here in California, we take physics (whether regular, honors, or AP) usually junior or senior year, but before this we take physical science, which covers basic physics, in 8th grade :) Hope this helps, and Good luck in Singapore!

How long is the school year in these countries & when do they start and end? by Q: How long is the school year (number of days) and when does it start and end (months and usual week) in these countries: Finland Canada Japan South Korea China Australia United Kingdom Thanks for answering!

A: I'll give you the number of days. Finland - 190 Canada - 190 (Starts early/mid September and ends last week of June) Japan/South Korea/China - 220 - 240s (and the days are longer too) Australia/UK - 190-200 US is 180, one of the shortest.

How do I eat healthy in high school during the school year? by Hello Q: I'm a teenager and I want to focus on eating healthy this school year. When I look on the internet, I found back to school recipes and ideas, but I don't think they are tailored to the needs of a teenaged girl (ya know, iron, potassium, and all that stuff.) And my taste is a little more sophisticated than a little kids. But I still want good, healthy food this year. Anyone have websites/recipes that they recommend? Thanks!

A: Peace be upon you, my friend: First of all, I am a fifteen-year-old girl. I am at a normal weight, and I am really attentive to what I put inside my mouth. So, I will tell you how to eat healthy because I know that eating healthy is very important to prevent any diseases, such as heart diseases, brain diseases, and so on. 1. Eat breakfast 2. Never try fad diets: they won't support your brain or your body, you will only temporarily lose weight, and will, very, very soon, gain more than your original weight! 3. Eat plenty of fruits and vegetables daily. Eat a variety because all types are good 4. Make sure you eat whole grains, like whole-wheat bread instead of white bread, oatmeal, and brown rice rather than white rice. Bran is also very filling, so you can put 1 teaspoon of bran on top of your yogurt 5. You should limit your intake of sugar as well as of processed foods, lke: fried foods, pop, sugar cereals, and french fries 6. You should make sure you get plenty of servings from each food group. This is what I do (and do not worry, I do not gain weight because this is considered a very good healthy, balanced diet) You need to get some protein which is found in meat, chicken, fish, eggs, beans, or soy products 7. You need to get about 2 servings of dairy per say such as: cottage cheese, yogurt, or milk 8. Do not cut on the fats, you should eat some healthy fats each day, such as: olive oil, canola oil, nuts, and fish) 9. Fish is really, really healthy. You can eat about 2 fish a day. It will definitely improve your memory, your mental abilities, and a lot more. You should be eating about 2 meals of fish each week. If not, you can try "Omega-3 pills": they are for general health and well-being. I take one twice a day during meals to reduce cholesterol and to make me more attentive, and more fresh! 10. Spread out your calories 11. You need to drink LOTS of water 12. You should eat salad, because it consists of vitamins as well as minerals, which are rich in nutrients and so beneficial for your health and well-being. I make a simple salad that consists of only cucumber and tomatoes. Sometimes, I add some carrots and lettuce to it 13. You can get your favorite treat every now and then. Make sure you do not deprive or starve your self. I promise it would lead to binge-eating (Don't remind me of the regretful feeling I have after binge-eating. It is a feeling that sucks!) 14. You should exercise 3-4 times a week. I personally do some home exercises. For example, I do the squats 15 times, I jump the rope for 10 minutes, I do some crunches for my abs, and so on. 15. If you do so, then you are going to stay healthy and fit So, let me give you a simple example of what I eat: Breakfast: 2 boiled eggs 1 whole-wheat toast with cottage cheese 1-3 cucumbers Milk with cappuccino, OR tea with milk, OR skimmed milk with oatmeal (I use skimmed milk) * I can use lite yogurt instead of skimmed milk After 1-2 hours from breakfast, I treat myself with 1-2 pieces of different fruits, like a banana and an apple, an apple and a peach, 15 pieces of grapes and a peach, or with an apple, etc. Lunch: Grilled beef or chicken with green salad A slice of whole-wheat toast Dinner: 1 yogurt (lite) 1 piece of whole-wheat toast with cottage cheese 1 boiled egg What do you think? P.S. You do not have to follow this balanced diet, I am actually trying to lose a bit of weight :-)

When does the school year start in Canada? by Jake Q: I'm from Melbourne, Australia and might be moving to Vancouver at the end of this year. I have heard that the school year starts in late August/early September over there. Over here it starts late January/early February. I am currently in year 9 and if I did move it would be when I finished year 9. So if it is true about the school year, then would I be repeating half of year 9?

A: Yes, it's true that school starts around late August/early September in Canada. But, you would just start year 10 (or whatever the equivalent is here) then. You wouldn't have to repeat half of your year.

How can I make this school year really fun and awesome? by Q: I go to a poor school with no clubs or sport teams. We don't even have 7 periods! I suck at pretty much all sports, except for skiing which is so expensive that I only get to do it every once and a while. My school is also really small so I already know everyone, and making new friends is hard (since there's usually no one to make friends with.) How can I make this school year fun filled and stay busy? I want a funny, happy year at my horrible school.

A: i think you should just be happy and talk with everyone like they are your best friends and be really open about your life and funny because that will keep them interested in you and being funny will help have a good time (: . Also bring some of your own games/ sport equipment in and play with that! I also advise not to be too goody goody / swotty but still get on with your work!

If I start high school and do drama club for the rest of my high school year will it help my acting career? by crestoothpaste11 Q: Im starting high school next year and ive been wanting to become an actress ever since I was like 10 years old. I've been trying to look up on how I can be an actress and what I have to do to get their but theres no information, Im planning on doing it for my whole high school year. If someone can give me any tips that can be usefull please do! -Thanx.

A: Step 1. Take acting classes -- this will help determine what you can do and what you like to do; you might find yourself interested in Shakespeare, or maybe you're destined to star in films. Step 2. Do plays -- this will help you get a sense for the real deal, working with people. I don't mean little kid summer camps, I mean community plays. Look for what you can audition for at your local theater. Step 3. Get good grades and get into a good arts college -- Julliard is nice, but if you don't make the cut, try a nice, private, liberal arts college Step 4. Become your own agent -- this way, you won't have to pay for one, and you can trust yourself. Extra Credit -- Join some theater camps or schools over the summer; it certainly couldn't hurt.

Can you start homeschooling during the school year? by Jo Anne J Q: Can I start home schooling my daughter now (she is having some mental health problems) or do I have to wait until the beginning of the next school year? And where can I find a curriculum that will pick up where her public school leaves off? We live in Texas

A: If you do a search on questions that have already been answered, you will find so much info. on this. Briefly - YES. Each area has its own rules so you'll need to check there. Texas is a great state to homeschool in, btw. Homeschool and homestudy are not exactly the same thing. IF you want to do exactly what your local school is doing and continue on that path, then go to your district office and tell them you want to put your daughter on homestudy. They'll give you all materials and assignments, you will arrange to turn in the work and meet with a teacher once a week. Homeschooling is wide open to however you choose to educate your child. Try a packaged curriculum at first if you need to, then figure out what is best for your family. See this website for guidance: hslda.org You just write a letter to your school and district informing them of your decision. They don't own your child or you. The law says that your child must receive an education, not by whom.

How can I start my home school year late? by EC Q: I home school 3 children in kindergarten to high school. Due to stressful circumstances, we were not able to start our school year until now, I am freaking out because I don't know how to catch them up, We are required 180 days, and school here started mid august. Does anyone have any suggestions or been in this same situation? PLEASE HELP!! Thank you.

A: Calm down, you're fine. School half days on Saturday, but make it fun, go longer in the summer and take a shorter winter break. Send the kids to educational day camps for spring break and you'll be fine. If that is not enough, tack an extra hour to 3 out of 5 instructional days, and you'll get to add an extra day to each working week. Also, document anything educational that your kids did while your family was unable to get organized. Think like an unschooler. We had a similar issue at our house this year, as serious life issues kept us busy through most of August and some of September.

Can a school raise tuition halfway during the school year and expect you to pay the new amount? by Killerkitty Q: So I go to a small private college and halfway during the school year they decided to raise tuition. I already signed and filled out my award letter earlier in the year and whatever is left over from my refund goes towards my housing, transportation and books. The problem is my housing and transportation is increasing and now that they raised tuition at the last minute it takes a huge chunk out of my refund. Is this legal?

A: As far as I know, any tution adjustments would apply to the next semester. I wouldn't think they could just raise the tuition in the middle....without offering a 100% refund. What school is this?

The question is asking for unnecessary specifics. I am assuming late August or early September. Please answer. Thank you.

A: schools in my area start anywhere from the first week in august to the third week.

How is the Condo market during the school year? by noelgallagherowns Q: I know the housing market in general is slower during the school year because parents don't wanna move their kids in the middle of school, but how is the condo market during the school year? Is it worse than normal houses or the same? The reason I ask is because I have my eye on one condo that I really like, but I need another 6-12 months to save up. I'm hoping between the bad economy and school being in session I might still have a chance to get this condo. What say you?

A: I'd say that if the US economy was going to recover, it would be well underway in 12 months. At that point real estate prices overall will recover, and interest rates may rise.

School Year? by the hug that lasted forever Q: At what time during a school year do you do your best?

A: probably 2 weeks into the second term. You've settled back into the rhythm but still aren't being overworked.

school year!? by hollister1314 Q: I go to a privite High school where we have to wear uniforms. there are very little ways we can express our selves. and i want to show people this year the real me. i am usually very confidant any help? please

A: Tell me of a High School that doesn't wear uniform and a teenager that doesn't want to express themselves. High school is not only about academic education but also preparing you for where you go after that. WORK (your future). What are your plans for after leaving school? Will the work you do require a dress code, uniform compulsory safety clothing. (don't abide by the rules at work and you loose your job) High school is for 5 years, work (your career) is another 50. Hold your head up high, be confident, use the little ways you can to express yourselves and know the limits. And hey, you are only in the classroom setting for 6 hours. Are you restricted after that and on weekends?
