I need a list of US school grades with corresponding ages.

I did ask this question before and Jim MacDonald answered it, but I can't find the post again (sorry Jim).

Here you go. The chart should be close enough.

Yep, that chart will work unless you're doing something historical (say, roughly, pre-1980s)

"Middle School" is a relatively new concept. Used to be called "Junior High School" and was for grades 7, 8 with "Elementary School" including grade 6.

Back in the day, of course. Not that I'm old enough to know from personal experience, or anything. *cough*stoplookingatmelikethat*cough*

That wiki article and the charts pretty much cover it all. Thanks, guys.
