If you’re in high school, classes start really early. Redditor 1ew put this map together to show the average start time for high schools in each of the American states. View it full-size here. As you can see, they are going at it awfully early, despite research showing teenagers do not get enough sleep and benefit from later start times at school.

Some of these early start times are because schools share buses, and once the high school students are delivered, they go back and pick up elementary students. Starting earlier also gets high school students out of class earlier for extracurricular activities, jobs, and supervising younger siblings. Whether those are good reasons is up for debate.
My school, back in the day, started at 8:30, and the doors weren’t even unlocked until 8:15. We still thought that was too early.
