Do you capitalize the name of a specific school grade, i.e. second grade or kindergarten, etc.?
In a word - No. For this question, you would capitalize only proper names. Some examples would be:
If you have a soccer club who's name is "The Second Grade Tigers"; then, second grade would be capitalized because it is part of a proper name.
A musical band may name themselves "The Kindergarten Cut-ups". Again, kindergarten is capitalized because it is part of a proper name.
If you are talking about a school grade as a whole, it is not capitalized, "The children in second grade painted this mural" or "When children enter kindergarten, they begin to learn about the school system".
If you are using the school grade as a destination, "My son enters second grade next year", second grade is not captalized because it is a destination only. "My son is going to the store" is the same usage as in "My son is enters second grade next year".
Hope this clears up the confusion.

I attended kindergarten in 1975 in a Deerlodge, MT. My teachers name was Mrs. Hart. How about you, where did you go to school? Pick whatever age you like.

How do schools in America work?I've always wondered this, I hear about middle school and high school but what ages are they. In the UK we just have primary and secondary, and lets say year 8 in the UK wouldn't be the same age as 8th grade in the US.

What was the name of your kindergarten teacher?Many people forget their teachers after leaving school. The student-teacher relationship is truly life altering one. My kindergarten teacher was Mrs. Fonacier. Though I'm not sure if I got the spelling right.

How about proper grammer such as how to write "aka" or "US" (with periods or without?).Or perhaps explain in layman's terms how to capitalize titles without going into things like pronouns or adverbs. You seem to know everything so I figure you're the perfect person to ask.
