Age segregation in schools, age grading, or graded education is the separation of students into years of education (grades, forms) by approximately the same age.

In the United States, graded education was introduced during 1848 to 1870.[1]

Age grading in schools has significant impact on age segregation among adolescent peer groups.[2]
