Well it might not be too much for your skin. The best amount IS twice a day, once in the morning and once at night, because otherwise too much washing can irritate skin and produce more oil which will then cause more breakouts. However, everyones skin reacts differently and if washing your face after school as well seems to be okay on your skin then go for it. Just be sure and use a GENTLE cleanser so you arent using SA, BP, or facial scrubbers too often.

I would say that if you wash it after sweating at school, you shouldn't use soap. Just splash it with water. 3x per day with soap is a bit much.
