Tiger Time is a mandatory study hall for students. The purpose was for everyone to finish work, retake tests, raise grades or maintain them. Tiger Time was created because graduation rates were low.

It should be gotten rid of completely.

Some students don’t take it seriously enough. Instead, they are on their phones, catching up on sleep, or talking with friends. Students seem to be more productive during regular classe time rather than during Tiger Time.

If students choose not to work efficiently, then what is the point of being there?

A few people use their time wisely, but those who do tend to like challenges. Some people like to even try to get ahead of everyone else.

Others have the habit of procrastinating at school. They hold off until the last minute. Tiger Time is unnecessary because sometimes, students work better alone when they are in a different setting .

We should eliminate Tiger Time. The school can make classes longer to cover needed hours of school.

    As if to read this article. i don’t know what to say really. But I’m going to be honest, i do waste my time during study hall, i currently don’t do anything unless i have missing work for that class i have tigertime in. Before in when i was a freshmen, i used to go to tigertime a lot, but when the year passed by, i lost the courage to go and finish my work. I do my work at home but, It seems like a bad thing to do since i have a lot of problems at home. But just to say, if I were you guys, if extending school more longer and ending an hour later than the regular time, then students to me won’t be staying or coming to school anymore. it’s best if we do keep tiger time. It’s not the school’s fault for students failing, it’s the students themselves. Don’t blame for something you didn’t do. Let others think about what they did.
