  • I had 7 classes a day, and I had probably about 8 hours a weekend and 10 hours a week

  • I teach 11and 12 grade and depending on level (honors, AP...) I would agree about 8 to 10 hours. I know, that is too much, but the competition is so high these days. I try really hard not to assign a ton, teens today are way busier and stressed then we were at that same age.

  • Jeez, I don't even remember and I only graduated 5 years ago! It really depends on the classes said high school senior is in - if they're in more advanced classes, probably more homework!

  • It depends on the classes they are taking. My daughter is a sophomore, and has a fairly heavy load (honors US history, AP biology, Honors Physics, algebra/trig, Honors British Literature, PE); she has 3-6 hours a night; 5-15 hours on the weekends. She is planning a lighter load senior year, so she can focus on college essays, and take at least one class at a local college.

  • Depends on whether he plans on going to college or not. The more he does now, the easier it will be then.

  • My son is a senior this year and he has 12-14 hours of work on the weekend.
