You need to go see a doctor. There are to many possible reasons for this and the only way to find out for sure is to see a doctor for testing. You will also need to let the doctor know everything you know about what is going on. Like when did it start, how many times a day does this happen, have you had any kind of head injury and anything else that will help them come to a solution.

You should see a doctor or the school nurse.  I would start drinking more water, gatorade for electrolytes, and improving sleep quality.  Make sure you eat breakfast as that's something I never did in high school.  Do you lose consciousness when you are doing something?
