Personally, that is the opposite for me. If I stay up later and wake when I need to, I get more clumsy throughout the day and get easily distracted and make mistakes that are just kind of sad. Doesn't happen half as often as when I actually go to bed at a decent hour. Everyone is different tho

No, that's not true at all. I found an article that you might be interested in reading from UC Berkley:

In light of reports of a teen sleep deprivation epidemic, researchers at University of California, Berkeley are undertaking what they say is the largest and most comprehensive study on teen sleep yet.

During the four-year study, researchers are working with hundreds of 10 to 18-year-olds who have trouble falling asleep and waking up.

?Adults are good with eight hours of sleep, but because teenage minds and bodies are developing so rapidly, they should be getting about nine,? explained Allison Harvey, the principle investigator in the study and a professor of psychology at UC Berkeley, to The Huffington Post.

It would be a lot smarter of me to go to bed earlier than I usually do.

A recent study has found that those who tend to stay up late and wake up later in the morning are mostly people with a high IQ.

no
early to sleep early to rise makes a man healthy, wealthy, and wise
it may depend on what you do if your staying up playing games its not beneficial but if your studying or doing work maybe it would help
