There are as many ways to define high/middle/grade/elementary/primary/intermediate/junior high school as there are terms to describe them. Inconsistencies exist between public/private schools and across the country. The NCES even has multiple definitions for what is considered a high school or elementary school. Most would consider a school with grades 9-12 as a high school. However, many private schools have grades Pre-K through 12. There are even public schools that offer grades 5-12 or only 12th grade.
We use the following definitions:
Elementary: Has one or more of grades K-6 and does not have any grade higher than grade 8.
High: Has one or more of grades 7-12 and does not have any grade lower than grade 7.
Combined: Has one or more of grades K-6 and one or more of grades 9-12. Schools in which all students are ungraded (i.e., not classified by standard grade levels) are also classified as combined.
To give you the most flexibility, we include "combined" schools in all of our reports. We also include columns that will show the grades a particular school offers. If you would like to define the various types of schools in a different manner, most spreadsheet software (such as Excel) should easily filter the list of schools based on these additional columns to match exactly the definition you would prefer.
