Double shift school is a type of school which operates in two shifts, with one group of students in the building early in the day and a second group of students later in the day. Schools in Mexico use the Double Shift System because they have too many students. In Mexico they have different principals in different shifts. Each shift gets equal amounts of time. [1] The purpose of a double shift school is to increase the number of students that can be taught without having to build another building.

      To avoid crowded classrooms,a school may adopt a dual shift system without reducing the students actual study time.[2]
