American school system age
At the age of five or six, the children attend elementary school (also known as grade school or grammar school), which last six years. The fist year at elementary school is called kindergarten.
In the USA, children start school when they are five or six years old. Depending on the state, schooling is compulsory until the age of 16 or 18. Children younger than five can go to a nursery school or preschool.

Candidates for Pre-Kindergarten – Grade 1 will be placed strictly by age. Placement in Grades 2-12 is determined by evaluating the student’s age, development, and previous school experience. The final decision will be made by the School Principal after review and evaluation of the child’s application.
It is important that students have completed a full grade level (American system equivalent) before advancing to the next grade level. If a student has not completed a grade level when enrolling at ASW, he/she will be placed in the same grade level to ensure completion of that grade level.
