Basically correct. The old system was "junior high school" grades 7-9, and "high school" grades 10-12, but there has been a good deal of flexing, as you note: most high schools now start with grade 9. (Note: grade 1 = six years old.) -- John Cowan One art/there is/no less/no more/All things/to do/with sparks/galore --Douglas Hofstadter
