What happened to the HW policy of 10 minutes per grade? The HW at the high school level is still extremely excessive! It has become the norm for my child to spend between 4-6 hours on HW per night, sometimes longer! Tonight math HW alone was over an hour, and there is still HW from all of the other classes to complete. She is a strong honors student, so it’s NOT due to a lack of understanding the material. Please remind the teachers to be cognizant of the amount of HW they are assigning (especially the English and History teachers)!

A.  Thanks for sharing your concern.  Please be sure that your daughter is sharing with her teachers how long the assignments are taking her to complete.  If you still notice a lot of homework after your daughter speaks to the teachers, we’d encourage you to speak with the teachers directly and possibly follow up with the principal or academic administrators.
