Answer #1

That’s pretty much the way it is here in Canada, but we call Grades 7 and 8 “Junior High”

Answer #2

here in the us is the same as advicegrl said and pretty much the same as stephanief987

Answer #3

I’m not sure about American, but here’s Canadian -

College/university = 18+

High school: 17-18 = 12th grade 16-17 = 11th grade 15-16 = 10th grade 14-15 = 9th grade

Elementary school: 13-14 = 8th grade 12-13 = 7th grade 11-12 = 6th grade 10-11 = 5th grade 9-10= 4th grade 8-9 = 3rd grade 7-8 = 4th grade 6-7 = 3rd grade 5-6 = 2nd grade 4-5 = 1st grade
