Senior high school students often face a multitude of academic responsibilities that make time management a challenging task, particularly when it comes to compromising their sleep. Sleep deprivation has become increasingly prevalent, with a significant number of students receiving less than the recommended six hours of sleep per day. The consequences of insufficient sleep are numerous, including tiredness, mood disorders, memory loss, a diminished attention span, and physical ailments. Although the recommended sleep duration for students aged 13 to 18 is 8 to 10 hours, the transition to senior high school poses difficulties in balancing academic workloads, resulting in shorter sleeping hours and subsequently lower general weighted averages. To shed light on this issue, a study was conducted at NU-Nazareth School during the academic year 2022-2023. The study employed a descriptive-correlational design, utilizing a multi-stage sampling technique to select the participants. The researchers developed a researcher-made questionnaire as the primary research instrument, which was administered to the 312 senior high school students of NU-Nazareth. The collected data was analysed using Spearman's correlation and JASP statistical software, with all tests conducted at a significance level of 5%. Surprisingly, the findings of the study revealed that, on average, senior high school students slept for only 6 hours per night. However, contrary to expectations, no significant relationship was found between sleep hours and academic performance or classroom participation. These results suggest that while sleep deprivation remains a prevalent issue among senior high school students, it may not directly impact their academic performance or classroom engagement. Further research is needed to explore additional factors that may influence academic outcomes in this student population.
