In the US, High School is ages 14–18 (following Middle school , ages 11–13). As far as I know, they don’t use secondary school in the US. The first years of compulsory schooling are called elementary or primary school (just to confuse the issue, elementary schools are also called grade or grammar schools ). Secondary education is for children aged 12 to 18. Secondary school generally takes place in a high school , which is often divided into junior and senior high .

A middle school (also known as intermediate school , junior high school , or lower secondary school ) is an educational stage which exists in some countries

La nouvelle carte d’Affelnet, le Parcoursup des collégiens, a été dévoilée ce mercredi par l’académie de Paris (photo d'illustration). © Damien Meyer The new Affelnet card, the Parcoursup des colégiens, was unveiled this Wednesday by the academy of Paris (photo illustration).

The parents of the third year students were impatiently awaiting it: the new Affelnet card, the Parcoursup des colégiens, has just been unveiled by the Paris Academy . And it's the cold shower for many colleges located on the outskirts of Paris. What is changing and why does this new system not seem to promote social diversity, which was the original objective? Explanations with Ghislaine Morvan-Dubois, President of the Federation of Parents' Councils (FCPE) Paris.

Affelnet is changing, but the system remains complex to understand. How does it work now?

Private schools therefore have the advantage over state schools as they are entirely ‘ middle class’, and this creates an environment of success where students work harder and apply themselves more diligently to their school work. One of the things that your money buys which is difficult to quantify is the appearance of the school , the way it looks. Most private schools that you will find are set in beautiful, well-kept country houses, with extensive grounds and gardens. In comparison with the state schools , they tend to look like castles, with the worst of the state schools looking like public

First, there is what does not change: Students are ranked according to the number of points they get with their grades and skill points. There is then a bonus for scholarship students and another for students who have completed their education in a disadvantaged college. Scholarship and non-scholarship students do not compete with each other, their assignment takes place on two systems in parallel. Then what changes is the choice between ten high schools. Students can draw from a first list, which earns a maximum of points. It includes five establishments attached to their sector college and located less than twenty-five minutes by public transport. With this list, a weak pupil will now pass in front of another who has a very good record but whose high school in question is located in his sector 2. There are indeed two other sectors which score less points: the second, with all the high schools located between twenty-five and forty minutes from the original college, and a third, which includes all the other high schools but earns even fewer points.

California schools debate pins Newsom between allies and GOP recall backers

  California schools debate pins Newsom between allies and GOP recall backers Most public schools remain shuttered around California even as classrooms in other states welcomed back students months ago. The protracted closure poses one of the most potent threats to Newsom with a recall push harnessing mounting frustration among parents and voters in the final month of signature gathering.Those dynamics have put Newsom in a precarious position. Republicans seeking to replace Newsom are hammering him over the school issue, trying to make the Democratic governor the face of school shutdowns.

There are key differences between maintained schools and free schools and academies. One of these concerns the teaching. Maintained schools have to follow the National Curriculum, although they can focus on specific subjects (such as RE in a church school ) as long as they meet the curriculum requirements Other types of maintained school have a little more freedom, but have to go through a formal consultation process if they want to change the timings of the school day. Day to day, you’re unlikely to notice much difference between the four types of maintained schools , or indeed between

Parents (and guardians) want to provide only the best for their kids so explore all the options at hand by learning about the different types of schools kids nowadays go to. Complaints and groans are common during early school years. Most of the children don’t like going to school every day, yet they are made to. Have you ever wondered why going to school is so important when you can study at home? Yes, home- schooling is an option; however, at one point in time, attending a school becomes necessary. The question as to why remains. Getting an education is a route to progress.

What advice do you give to parents to make their choice in the ten high schools to be selected?

They are advised first to check on the map in which college their child is sectorized , because it is not necessarily the one where he is attending school, since the sectorization is changing in Paris. It is then necessary to establish the list of ten high schools while ensuring the options, such as Greek, or specialties, such as science and digital. It is a matter of verifying whether they exist in the desired high school, this is the most important for the student. But, for the moment, we are waiting for the lists of options and specialties to be available on the academy's website.

What feedback do you have after the publication of this new map?

We are starting to have very bad feedback: many colleges in the periphery, in the South, North and East, do not have access to the center of Paris, whereas it was quite possible before. This is the case, for example, at François-Villon college, in the 14th arrondissement, or at Jean-Perrin, in the 20th century. The rectorate therefore did not follow through on what it had announced by promising access from peripheral colleges to central high schools. Conversely, middle schools in the center are very well served, because they have high demand schools nearby. Why did the rectorate not push social diversity to the point of widening the map of certain colleges in the center? We do not know what the arbitrations were. An interpersonal relationship is emerging between the favored colleges and high schools in the center of Paris. This is our fear and we will ask for accommodations.

New York City middle schools reopen for in-person class as Covid-19 surge fades

  New York City middle schools reopen for in-person class as Covid-19 surge fades New York City middle schools reopened for in-person classes on Thursday as a surge of coronavirus cases that had shut schools in November continued to fade. © Andrew H Walker/Shutterstock Mandatory Credit: Photo by Andrew H Walker/Shutterstock (10736930g) Middle School 577 in Williamsburg, Brooklyn. Governor Andrew Cuomo announced that New York City's public schools can hold in-person classes this fall, paving the way for the district to become the only major U.S. system to open its doors.

All pupils can return to school from 8 March. Secondary schools are allowed to stagger the return over a week, to allow Covid testing to be carried out. Students will be tested three times in the first two weeks and then two rapid tests to use each week at home. Students on higher education courses requiring "practical teaching, specialist facilities or on-site assessments" will also return from 8 March. Mr Johnson said the government was reviewing the timing for the return of other face-to-face teaching in colleges and universities. He said a decision would be made by the end of the Easter holidays.

Grammar schools give secondary education of a very high standard but modern schools don't prepare pupils for universities. The Open University It is the only university offering extramural education. Students learn subjects at home and then post ready exercises off to their tutors for marking; The New ones. They are former polytechnic academies and colleges. The best universities, in view of " The Times" and " The Guardian", are The University of Oxford, The University of Cambridge, London School of Economics, London Imperial College, London University College.

The rectorate had nevertheless decided to change the rules to promote social diversity. It's a shame, isn't it?

That was the stated goal, so we stay alert. It is a painstaking job to look at the list of corresponding high schools for each of the colleges, but here we realize that the establishments of the center remain in the center. We do not see the announced goal of social diversity. For stock market bonuses, we are also waiting for details. For each high school, there is in fact a target rate of scholarship students, that is to say a quota, to achieve a better balance between the establishments. Today, for example, we have colleges with 60% scholarship students and others with less than 10%. The idea now is to have a fixed rate per high school, between 15% and 30%, to avoid concentrations of scholarship holders and have more diversity. The other mechanism is to ensure that colleges located on the outskirts can be assigned to more central high schools. For this, students who are in socially disadvantaged colleges have a bonus that will allow them to have an advantage over others.
