Primary Education in the USA

In the United States, children start their formal education around the age of six. (They may prepare for this beginning, the first grade, by attending a kindergarten program at age five or a nursery school program even earlier.)  The first year at school is called kindergarten. It is required by all American children to be enrolled in the American education system. The second year at school is considered the first year of primary school and is referred to as first grade. Primary school most commonly consists of five years of education, referred to as first through fifth grades. At age five- six, American children begin elementary school by enrolling in the first grade, the first of twelve possible grades. 

Academic Year

In United States school year runs from September to June, with a full summer vacation.

Enrollment of Children: Enrolling a child in an American public school is a fairly simple process. There are no interactions and interviews. The basic requirement for enrollment of a child in a public school is that you and your child live in the district. As a parent all you need to furnish is proof of residence with your name and address on it, like an apartment lease, though telephone and electric (utility bills) are widely preferred proofs. You will also be required to submit vaccination and other medical records.
