It's something you wouldn't expect from one of El Paso's most highly regarded schools.
Hundreds of students from Silva Heath Magnet High School attempted a walkout Friday, and over the weekend, parents and students met to discuss as what they see as yet another failure by the El Paso Independent school District.
Students from Silva Magnet High School and their parents signed a petition of protest on Sunday.
Students say the schedule changes allow for less time in the classroom.
They also say their class sizes ballooned, going from around 15 students per class to 45 students per class.
Now, students worry about the quality of their education.
Dozens of parents showed up to the off-campus meeting.
Silva Magnet High School is intended to prep students for college with the idea they'll concentrate on jobs in medicine for the future.
"We are very concerned that she will no longer be graduating from a blue- ribbon school if this change goes through", said Ericka Aguayo, who's a parent of one of the students.
The changes have many parents concerned.
Parents say the schedule changes aren't needed.
"What has worked very well and was not broken is now very inefficient," said Aguayo.
Isela Castanon Williams, Board President of the El Paso Independent School District attended the meeting.
"Whenever there are concerns raised with the functioning of any component in a school there needs to be a deliberate and conscientious and immediate effort to rectify the situation to fix the problem," said Williams.
The petition was to have the school change the scheduling back to what it used to be.
EPISD officials tell ABC-7 they have been working over the weekend trying to adjust the schedules.
They also tell ABC-7 they will be having a meeting with parents on Monday.
