Well the school system in the United States is a little different.

At an age before 5, some parents send their kids to preschool also known as Pre-K

At age 5+ kids will attend Elementary School: Grades K-5 K stands for Kindergarten, the grade before 1st grade.

At age 10+ kids will attend Middle School: Grades 6-8

And at 13+ kids will attend High School: Grades 9-12

9th grade: Freshman
10th grade: Sophomore
11th grade: Junior
12th grade: Senior (Note these names repeat again in college i.e first year of college is a freshman)

Higher education: Some students choose to do a two year technical degree. Others choose to attend a traditional 4 year college.

2 year degree: Technical degree/ associates degree

4 year degree: Bachelor’s Degree (also known as undergraduate degree)

6-8 years: Master’s Degree/Specialist Degree

8+ is a Doctorate

I hope that answers your questions. ^^

Generally most children attend preschools before they enter into kindergarten at around age four or five
Grades 1-6= Elementary school – though some public school districts also call it primary school
Grades 7 & 8= junior high although there are middle schools which can vary from 6-9
Grades 9-12= high school

then our secondary education system consists of trade schools, community and junior colleges, state colleges and universities.

There is also graduate school after that for students who’ve obtained a four-year degree earning either a masters or doctorate
