Is it ok to sleep for only 7 hours? I have to get up for school around 6 and I usually go to sleep around 11. Is this enough sleep to grow?

8-9 is optimal for your age, especially if you are an athlete
7 hours is good enough if it's all you can get, plus the amount of sleep needed can vary form person to person. Catch up on the weekends and you will be fine.
Random tip: if you wake up at the same time every morning, you body will adapt to that and start to get tired on its own at night (see: early bird)

7 hours is fine. Try to always get as much sleep as possible (I'm talking 12+ hours if possible). Sleep is the best thing you can do. Lift heavy then eat and sleep all day and I promise you you'll have massive gains.
7 hours is honestly fine, 8 is recommended but saying an hour less sleep will kill your gains is stupidYou can be as cold as the winter weather but I don't care as long as were together <3
