Before commencing higher education, students in the American system will be required to complete a total of twelve years of education which is distributed throughout primary to secondary school.
Around age six, U.S. children begin primary school, which is most commonly called “Elementary School.” They attend five years of study and move onto secondary school.
Secondary school consists of two programs: the first is “middle school” or “junior high school” and the second program is “high school.”
The American Diploma is awarded upon graduation from high school. After graduating high school (12th grade), U.S. students may go on to college or university. College or university study is known as “higher education.”
