I hate to keep bringing up ancient history but we used our lockers..... a lot. Go to the locker, put the last class books in, get the next class books out, go to class. Maybe, if the classroom situation worked out, we might carry two classes worth so as to eliminate a run to the locker.It's not how old you are, it's how you got here.
It's been a long road and not all of it was paved.

One school I attended had a different system, the teachers moved, not the teachers. Trips to the locker were limited, but it was no big deal to use the locker, it just happened less often. It simply kept the hallways quieter as it was a smaller school. We did switch class rooms, but rather then 7 times a day it was more like 2 or 3 times.
I usually was able to get most of my work done at school, but at times I did need a book bag/duffle bag at other schools. Especially at the college prep focused private school....long research papers.
We had a study hall with no adult supervision. Only a few of us were allowed that privilege but they loved me.
They have a very strict grade scale, and my grades jumped from the public school system, I started to like school again and qualified for the good student discount for car insurance. A/B average...passing grade was a 70, which would of been a C in the public school...
I loved that politically conservative, Christian school. Many were upset about the rules but they also had strict parents, I did not. My music was not the devil, etc. I had the best parties and all the other parents were just happy that their kids were at my house as they knew my parents were not going to let any kids take off and drive if they had been drinking. The parents knew deep down the kids were going to do what they were going to do, and were just happy they were safe. My parents would wake up on New Years Day and were tripping over kids sleeping on the living room floor. My dad would run up town and buy doughnuts or my mom would cook breakfast.
On our senior night before graduation we had a co-ed slumber party at a Pastor's home.
