Healthy Habits

Students should get the proper amount of sleep at night to help stay focused, improve concentration, and improve academic performance.

info graphic stating that students 6 of 10 middle school students and 7 of 10 high school students don't get enough sleep. Kids 6-12 need 9-12 hours and teens 13-18 need 8-10 hours of sleep.

Children and adolescents who do not get enough sleep have a higher risk for many health problems, including obesity, type 2 diabetes, poor mental health, and injuries. They are also more likely to have attention and behavior problems, which can contribute to poor academic performance in school. Sleep and Health at Centers for Disease Control and Prevention
