In Canada, our school system is responsible for educating children from Kindergarten (5 years old) through to high school graduation at the completion of Grade 12 (18 years). Our district has two levels of schooling: Elementary school (K- Grade 7) and High School (Grades 8-12). Canadian school students participate in a varied and comprehensive educational program for ten months of the year (September through June), five days a week (Monday-Friday), for six hours a day, generally from 9am to 3pm.
