Hi,

To mean (an elementary school) class schedule, which is more idiomatic?

1. the schedule for classes
2. the schedule of classes

Thanks in advance.

Neither. 2 sounds to me slightly better, but 'time-table' is idiomatic.

I might be wrong but I think in AmE, "class schedule" is OK. In BrE, as Bob said, it's "timetable" (note that I would not use a hyphen).

:up: I wondered about the hyphen - it's definitely on the way out.

I think it must have been on the way out for at least four decades. I've never seen it used (until this thread).
