This study analyzes block scheduling and its effect on Leicester High School. Block scheduling is a system where fewer, but longer classes are employed. The effects of block scheduling were investigated through analysis of SAT scores, student surveys, and faculty surveys. Although this study found no relationship between scheduling systems and SAT scores, student and faculty surveys revealed a great deal about block scheduling at L.H.S. It was recommended that a five period schedule be adopted.
