Depending on where you live the time you spend in 1 School varies.

I've always been confused with Middle School and High School (in America) since i realised that it's not the equivalent to Primary and Secondary Schools in England because of the age differences.

Since we have people from different parts of the world we can put together the stages of Education where you are from.

For England

Infants: Ages 5-7

Primary School: Ages 7-12

Secondary School: Ages 12-16

College: Usually Ages 16-18

University: 18+
