The composition of Junior High Schools, also known as Middle Schools, varies from community to community and within a community. Variations included:



1. Years 6-9

2. Years 7-9

3. Years 7-8



Some American schools consist of years 1-8.



American schools generally were/are divided into Primary, Middle and Secondary schools. Additionally there are Infant Schools in the form of Kindergarten and Nursery Schools. Although the laws may differ throughout the vastness of 50 States, generally compulsory education is from age 6 through 18.

I have taught in combined grades (K-2 and 2-3 splits)in the US and overseas.

Twenty-two years of my experience teaching has been in international schools in Africa and Asia.
