Below is some information from another study.

We studied 48 high school students and found that the students who went to bed earlier did better on their school tests. This is not only true for those who slept nine hours, but also true for those who slept less. And some of them agreed that they learned better in early morning classes.

No, because her letter says teenagers’ brains do not work well in early morning classes.
No, because her letter says students are asked to get to school by 7:30 a.m.
Yes, because her letter says getting up early is not helpful for learning.
Yes, because her letter says it is better to sleep from 11 p.m. to 8 a.m.
