Secondary school is a term used to describe an institution where the final stage of compulsory schooling, known as secondary education, takes place. It follows on from primary or elementary education. There are many different types of secondary school and the terminology used varies around the world. Children usually transfer to secondary school between the ages of 11 and 14, and finish between the ages of 16 and 18, though there is considerable variation from country to country. In the United States the term high school is often used as a synonym for secondary school.

NomenclatureEdit

The names used to describe the institutions used for secondary education vary from country to country. Sometimes the same terminology is used in different countries but with very different meanings.
