Abstract

Sleep is one of the most important factors in student success, both academically and socially. Although many schools recognize the importance of sleep for their students, they fail to make changes that allow or help their students to get more sleep. In order to observe how sleep, or a lack thereof, affects students’ lives and grades, surveys were sent to students of Illinois Mathematics and Science Academy, as well as students of Watseka Community High School to see if students under more academic pressure had significantly different sleep habits or perceptions of the quality of life. Using the results of these surveys allowed us to make overall conclusions about sleep habits of high school students as well as a unique comparison in sleep habits of two different types of schools. Findings will be discussed during the presentation
