WHAT A TYPICAL DAY AT HILLWOOD IS LIKE.
What is a typical day at Hillwood like? It starts with you hanging out with your friends in the morning until 9:00AM when classes start. We normally start with math. In math this week we've been doing positive and negative numbers. At 9:50AM we take a break. After that, if we haven't finished our math, we have to 10:30 to finish it. Then we do literature. In literature we do exercise A and B and we do D.W.S., which stands for Developing Writing Skills. We develop our writing skills by writing sentences. After D.W.S., we have lunch. My favorite lunch is chicken nuggets. After lunch, we go to the park and play games until 1:00. We usually have study hall until 1:45 and we do history until 2:25. If we don't extend history longer we do grammar. Then we pack up.
