I'm from England and here it goes

Nursery around aged 3-4 years

Primary aged 4-11 years

High school 11-16 years (the law is going to change to 18 soon) and I think it should and children should be made to stay in school as i think 16 is know age for such big choices.

Any education after 16 at present is optional although if carried on you then attends college, then university.

You MUST have your child in school in SK for age 5.

You can opt for college or university afterwards but it's not forced.

Preschool 3-5



Kindergarten can start as early as 4, but some kids are 6 first. 5 is 'average', so I'll give average ages for the rest



1st-5th... 6-11 years old



Middle school (6th-8th).... 11-14



High school (9th-12th)... 14-18



College is optional
