No kindergarten, but from 1st through college all in the little town of LaGrande, Or. Various schools there, but in a town of 10,000 it doesn't make much difference and there was only one high school and junior high (middle) school.
When I started college they only offered 2 years of my major, but in my sophomore year they added a third year and when I was a junior they added the degree. It worked out well.

Hi from across the Atlantic! We have a Birmingham. Birmingham, Alabama home to the civil rights movement. Infants school... I guess that would be our preschool age group sometimes called headstart.
Birmingham City Council decided to produce a flyer, to post through every door in Birmingham, which has a population of approximately 1.5 million. It had a photograph on the front, to show the changing skyline of Birmingham, which has been transformed by the building of higher and higher skyscrapers. Although the picture looked like Birmingham, it was hard to make out individual buildings, and it just didn't look quite right. Then an observant person realised that the skyline was actually of Birmingham Alabama.

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.
