Who goes to a community school and who goes to a private school (I go to private but this is for a school project.... No judging I to went to community school for the first 5 years of my schooling)
In US, I am a product of private Catholic schools and public (sort of) college.
Always been to private schools!
Went to both. Private for 2 weeks in high school and I didn't care for it.
Private school since pre-school.
Private for 3 years, public for all the rest. Public school here is 10 times better than private schools.
I went to public. I have two kids at private and one in public.
Do you consider a charter school a private or community?
Public K-12, private college.
Always went to a public school
I went to a public school from kindergarten through 12th grade.
I'm going to public school right now(high school) plan on going to a private university
I went to public school 5th-12th. Private for the rest, and for college and grad school.
In America how many years at school do you have?
1-2 years of preschool (optional)
1 year of kindergarten
So... as many as 15 years. Then 2-4 of college for most people. Some go on for advanced degrees.
In England its:
Nursery and reception 2 years
Year 1/6 which is 6 years
Year 7/11 which is 5 years
And 2 years of college-optional
And then university-optional
How old are kids when the enter college?
But you can go at any age I've 15
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
Ah, ok. Interesting!
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
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
Yes...here, you can't get into a good college/university unless you did well in high school.
I went to private school and so does my oldest son. My youngest son will be going to private school also.
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.
I shared your poll with my followers.
I was homeschooled
