A sample size of 23 Willis Hall students also completed this survey, and there were some notable differences between the high school and middle school students. The results were fairly similar compared to the 8th graders, though the high schoolers seem to visit more social media sites as a whole as well as use more ways to communicate in general.
The last portion of the survey focused on amount of sleep our students average on a school night and compared this average to weekends. Both numbers were in the 8-hour range for all Eaton Hall students; a healthy amount according to sleepfoundation.org. The high schoolers reported getting approximately 7.1 hours a night on school nights, but almost 10 hours on weekends. Lastly, with the exception of the 6th grade, an overwhelmingly majority of our students sleep with at least one electronic device left on (able to make noise or alert them of notifications). This leaves room to question that even if our students are reportedly getting the recommended amount of sleep for their age, is the quality of sleep in jeopardy due to these electronic devices?
