Grade is completely unnecessary early on. The teacher can track the kids progress without involving grades. If a kid falls behind they need to take action otherwise let them be kids.
We don't do middle school here. It's K-7 elementary and 8-12 high school.
We do not usually have middle school here in the UK, everyone is shoved in together.
always seems odd having a middle school.
So just elementary and high? What age do you start high school?
We start at 11 and then finish at 16
But for England.
“You can leave school on the last Friday in June if you’ll be 16 by the end of the summer holidays.
You must then do one of the following until you’re 18:
stay in full-time education, for example at a college
start an apprenticeship or traineeship
spend 20 hours or more a week working or volunteering, while in part-time education or training”
@chrismaster69 I like that program. With summer school and by taking the maximum number of classes each year, I had amassed enough "credits" to have skipped the 12th grade (senior year) entirely and graduate. My school district didn't allow that, so I was required to serve a prison sentence of half of my senior year before graduating in January (rather than in June). I had planned to attend the US Naval Academy and needed far more advanced math and science classes than were offered at my high school and used the extra months to take classes at a community college. At that time, you could not be enrolled in high school and college simultaneously. It sounds like you chaps on the other side of the Pond have a system which meets individual needs rather than one size (has to) fit all.
In my school district we did K-6 followed by 7-8, and then 9-12.
It seemed to work fine.
Middle school for me was 6-8 and I had no issues with that.
It was elementary K-5, middle school 6-8 high school 9-12.
my upper el. was 5-6, my junion high was 7-8 and my h. s. was 9-12
I had Junior High School from grades 7 through 9
Hell no lol. That doesn’t exist to me
On this post, we pretend that doesn’t exist. Nope lol
Umm… The middle? 🤔 lol
I studied 6-8 but it changed now :(
7th - 8th
7-8 is perfect. I was ready to get out of elementary in 6th and middle school was the perfect length and now I'm ready to go into highschool (I hope)
I see. I experienced the same but my middle years sucked so it’s hard to tell in my case but I always wondered what it would’ve been like to start middle during 6th grade.
