Oh, no..it's not exactly the same. It's somewhat different over here.
Here, you start school at the age of 3 or 4 in pre-school. Then on to Kindergarten is age 5 or 6. Then, Elementary school is ages 7 to 10. Then we start Middle school which is ages 11 to 14. Then we start High School which is 4 years...Freshman year, Sophomore year, Junior year, & then Senior year...we usually graduate Senior year at age 17 or 18. Then we are off to college.
