Guam - A high dropout and absentee rate as well as low SAT-10 scores are part of the reason the Guam Education Board opted to change the bell schedule for Southern High School. Following board approval the Santa Rita campus will now be under a 3-x-3 block schedule like other local public high schools.

Despite the change principal James Petite says classes will begin and end at the same times. "Students now at Southern High School were going to be earning a six credits a year in the regular academic program," said the administrator. "Now since they've done this, I can bring back summer school and Eskulen Puenge' (summer school), so we will be in line with the schedule of other high schools."

Basically the new bell schedule petite means students will have three classes on Monday and Wednesday, then the other three classes on Tuesday and Thursday, and on Friday they will have al six classes.
