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.

Im in canada as well, in Ontario

Preschool (daycare option) is from 3-5

JK/SK (junior and senior Kindergarten - part of elementary school) is 3-6

elementry school - grade 1 through 8 - approx age 5/6 through to age 12/14 - depending on when you started school and when your birthday is

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

High school is approx age 13/14 - 17/18

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

Vancouver, Canada (it's not the same nationwide):

Pre-school: 3-4 years

Kindergarten: 5-6 years (part of elementary school)

Elementary: 6-12 years

All of the above are available publicly and free and are mandatory. After age 18 university, colleges, and trade and technical schools are all optional and user pay.

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
