I would usually take it to mean
the student leaves their house at 7am to travel to school
since 7am is very early for class to start in a normal situation. However, given other locations and situations it may be possible that somethings actually do start at 7am, e.g athletic practice. Obviously, the speaker is depending on the listener's understanding and knowledge of common local practices.
