All about secondary schools

A secondary school (or a high school) describes an institution that provides secondary education and also usually includes the building where this takes place. In the US, the secondary education system has separate middle schools and high schools.

What are secondary schools?

Secondary schools, also known as high school or secondary education, follow on from primary schools and prepare for vocational or tertiary education. Attendance is usually compulsory for students until age 16. The organisations, buildings, and terminology are more or less unique in each country.

The Benefits of attending secondary schools

Attending a private secondary school can provide several advantages, including:

  • A rigorous academic program which encourages the development of critical thinking and problem-solving skills
  • Access to highly qualified teachers with advanced degrees who specialize in their subjects
  • Smaller class sizes, providing more individual attention from educators
  • An enriched curriculum often with added extracurricular activities such as music and art
  • Access to the latest educational technology, such as online learning platforms and active learning techniques.
  • A supportive environment which facilitates social growth and personal development.
