In US, I am a product of private Catholic schools and public (sort of) college.

Went to both. Private for 2 weeks in high school and I didn't care for it.

Private for 3 years, public for all the rest. Public school here is 10 times better than private schools.

Do you consider a charter school a private or community?

1-2 years of preschool (optional)
1 year of kindergarten
1-12 grades

So... as many as 15 years. Then 2-4 of college for most people. Some go on for advanced degrees.

Interesting! I didn't realize that college and university is separate there. Here, people go to college/university but they are basically the same thing. We go after graduating high school age 17 or 18.

Yh you must graduate college first to move up into the higher education of university college is free here you don't need any tuition money but we do for university... But uni is really important to us i.e want to be a doctor must graduate from uni

This is weird for me like so are you saying you don't need to go through school college and university I have always been use to one way of life but everything seems so much more easy and fun in America gadd I've gotta hate England

Technically, kids can drop out of school completely but it would be hard to find a good job nowadays if they did so.

Kids go to high school (grades 1-12). After high school graduation, comes college/university (again, those are the same thing here).

College/university is optional in the U.S. but most kids go because that's where you study and learn the field that you pick as your career. If you want a career that doesn't require a college/university degree, then you don't have to go.

In England we have to be in school or parents get fined/appear in court/jail

alynn Somewhere wonderful
07/31/15 7:01 am

So...everything prior to college/university here (around age 17 or 18) is considered a basic education. College/University is to prepare you for the career you've chosen and is usually ages 18-22.

It's considered very bad here if a kid drops out of school (typically in high school only). Parents get in trouble up to a certain age though.

We consider school most important without that we wouldn't get into our wanted college

alynn Somewhere wonderful
07/31/15 7:10 am, you can't get into a good college/university unless you did well in high school.

Went to public school through high school.
Then attended a private college but didn't graduate. Transferred and graduated from a public university.

If this is for a science project remember that the universe that makes up SOH is not representative of the population.
May or may not be a good or bad thing.
