This January, the PIHS midterm schedule is totally different than the way it’s been in the past few years.

Midterms for all of your classes used to be taken over the course of just a few days. Now, the midterms are stretched out over the course of two weeks. Students are now given two days to complete their test per subject. Some people like the new schedule. Others, not so much.

Aaliyah Lichterman ‘20 said, “ I honestly hate it. It’s so inconvenient that we’re now stressed out for two whole weeks, rather than just getting them done and over with in a few days.”

“I really don’t like it, it’s just too stressful,” said Clara Kohbacher ’20. I’d rather just take all the midterms in a few days rather than two weeks.”

English teacher Mary Trainer said that she actually loves the new midterm schedule. “You may find a lot of people who disagree with me, but I like it because students only have to study for a couple of tests each day. I also think that students have more time to get their grades up after they take the test.”

Principal Ben Greenlaw said that the decision to change the midterm schedule wasn’t ultimately up to him. “Our main concern with the previous schedule was that we were hearing a lot of faculty complaining about the loss of instructional time.”  He went on to say, “I also wanted to try and get away from taking more than one midterm per day, and with the new schedule that is in place, there isn’t a lot of lost instructional time.”

However, he is still waiting to hear the students and faculty’s thoughts on the new schedule.
