ATTENTION:  Students, Parents, and Teachers
Adolescents need 9 hours of sleep each night.
However, 91% of American high school students are chronically sleep-deprived.


Even half an hour of sleep deprivation can cause:

  • Decreased performance & alertness
  • Impaired memory and processing speed
  • Lower levels of motivation/satisfaction

Leading to:

  • Increased risk of driving accidents
  • Obesity
  • Increased use of stimulants
  • Depression
