School Spirit

Most children attend elementary school (or primary school) and then high school (or secondary school). Usually, children enter high school at about age 13 or 14. Some school systems have middle schools that children attend for two years before they enter high school.


Elementary school starts with Kindergarten at age four or five. The purpose of Kindergarten is to help young children become used to school. At age six, children attend Grade 1 and continue through to Grade 6 or 8 before they enter high school.

In most elementary schools, children have one classroom teacher for all general subjects. Other teachers may help for special subjects such as music or physical education.
