In brief: Tools for Sleep
We go through a variety of cycles from light to heavy sleep and it seems that when we wake up in a lighter sleep you are not as tired throughout the day.
The website sleepyti.Me has a calculator to find an optimal time. There are a variety of monitors that you can buy such as jawbone's up or the zeo at around $99. They track your sleep waves and try to wake you up during lighter phases of sleep.

Ideally, even adults would benefit with better health by averaging around 8 hours of sleep - just count backwards from your needed wake up time.

In brief: 10:30pm
If you are sleeping through the night, we sleep physicians generally recommend 8 hrs of sleep.
Some of us can get away with less, some of us need more. A good rule of thumb is whether you can wake up before your alarm, not need naps, or not feel even the bit sleepy during the day. Sleep is just as important to our physical and mental health as diet and exercise.
