EOC: Extremely Overburdened Class

Seniors and their struggle to survive through EOC block schedule week

Some seniors not used to the early mornings, struggle on their way to school

As the end of the school year approaches, it can only mean one thing: the dreaded EOC testing schedule.

This schedule is arguably the worst class schedule in the Wentzville School District. You only have three classes per day, and the order that you have them is even worse. One day you’ll have third hour first, and the next you start your day with the eighth hour. This schedule is hard on the whole school but it especially affects one grade specifically, the seniors.

As a senior, you get the perk of choosing to having a late start or an early release added to your day. However, the EOC block schedule defeats that advantage, as it rearranges the schedule completely. Some days, third hour is the first block of the day, meaning the late start seniors who have a third hour are unable to sleep in and arrive late.

“The EOC block schedule made my routine less ideal since I had to be here at the very start of the school day for most of the week instead of having my usual late start,” senior Aicha Beye said. “That said, I liked getting to arrive/leave two hours late/early a few times.”

The nice advantage of the schedule gives the EOC testers a good chance to start and finish their tests, without the interruption of the bells. In spite of that, as a senior you don’t have any official EOC’s, so this schedule can be draining for those who have nothing to do.

“The worst part was having to do two straight hours of notes and assignments in some of my classes,” Beye said. As a senior with only a few AP tests, most of her days consist of long, ongoing classes, with little motivation or focus. She also mentioned that by the end of most days she was mentally drained and exhausted.
