A typical day at Onate High involves you getting to school and the bell ringing at 8:30 am; which is very helpful to some students because this gives them 10 extra mintues. Then, you make your way to first/second period, or your locker- whichever comes first. You spend about 80 minutes in class then the bell rings again. You then move on to your third/fourth period which is the same amount of time. After second period, it is lunch time- which is most fun if you have qualified for an "off-campus" pass; then you can leave school for lunch. If you don't have this pass, you can go to the school cafeteria or the lunch trucks outside. After that, you have fifth/ sixth period for 80 minutes and then seventh/ eighth period. It all depends on the day (odd or even) that depends on the blocked or full year class you have. Then after seventh/ eighth- you go home be it on a bus, driving, parent pickup, walking, or stay after school for whatever activities/clubs.
