The educational system in the United States is usually public, and its control and financing is given through the three levels of government...

  • Federal.
  • State.
  • Local.

The students, between primary and secondary, invest a total of 12 years.

At the age of six, children begin primary school, where they attend for six years and then start high school.

The secondary schools are constituted by two programs:

  • Middle school.
  • High school. 

Once this period is over, students can start college or university.

It is important to keep in mind that education is compulsory for all students up to the age of 16 years. The rating system generally uses letters:

  • A, excellent.
  • B, above average.
  • C, average.
  • D, below the average.
  • F, Failed.

In most schools, students must obtain a C to pass the course.

Also, there is no national education system, the federal government does not administer the schools, each of the fifty states has its own education department in which the rules for schools in that state are established. Public schools and universities receive funds from the state in which they are located.

Both public and private universities offer the same level of education among them. Also, some universities offer short courses to their students.
