Well, where I grew up the school system might be unconventional, so I will try to use something different, but let me mention who was school when I grew up: 7:15 morning queue/file/ranks: basically each class stand in a line and listen to small speeches/activities read by other students (usually prepared by the teachers) 7:30-9:45 first 3 periods 9:45-10:15 breakfast recess 10:15~12:30 3 more periods 12:30:12:45 small recess (no lunch) 12:45~1:30 last period so basically each period is 45 minutes, 7 periods a day That is one of the schools I attended, other schools was about the same except they start 30 minutes later and finish 30 minutes later. I didn't look up much to other countries, but in Japan they seem to start at 8 and finish at 4, I don't know many periods they have and how long they last. So what are common/known daily schedule breakdowns? Is it the same for boarding/live-in school? I am thinking of making something similar to Hogwarts school, houses and points.
