Hallway Etiquette

Apex High School is terrible at walking the hallways! Students move slow and act incompetently, adding to the frustation of moving to your next class. There is a general consensus that walking to your next class can be one of the most frustrating aspects of Apex High. With over 2500 students, we could all be better at walking the hallways. I have compiled a list of what to do and what not to do.

What to do:

  • Walk swiftly.
  • Stay to the right side.
  • Slower walkers should keep to the wall.
  • Stay on the right side of the stairs.

What not to do:

  • Stop walking.
  • Block the doors to the stairs.
  • Walk shoulder to shoulder with four people.
  • Yell or scream.

There are also some unwritten rules of the hallways too. For example, when that final bell rings, there is no right side of the stairs. With 2500 people needing to leave, do not attempt to walk up the stairs. You slow down the entire school when you do that. Similarly, at the first morning bell, all the stairs should flow moving upwards. Nobody should move downstairs.

“It’s very frustrating seeing people standing in the hall thinking that they’re so much better than everyone else. In addition they also shortened the amount of time we have to get to our next class,” said Jayce Peters. 

In addition to all the commotion in the hallways, the time between periods has been shortened to six minutes. Time to get to class – the right way!
