Primary and Secondary Schools

Primary education in the U.S. refers to the first eight years of formal education in most jurisdictions. The first year of primary education, also known as elementary school, is kindergarten and begins around the age of 5. In most jurisdictions, secondary education is the last four years of formal education (grade 9-12) either at high school or split between a final year of junior high school (or middle school) and three years in high school.
