    Secondary school = junior high and high school, or the levels between 7th grade and 12th grade.

    College is used in the US to mean university.

    In the US these are the usual levels:
    pre-school
    kindergarten
    elementary or primary school
    junior high/middle school
    senior high
    college/university

    I hope this answered your question.

    Muchas gracias gotita. Podrias explicarme como va lo de las notas? Quiero decir, en España se suele calificar de 0 a 10 y el aprobado es un 5. Y en USA o UK?

    Sorry to be late getting back to you.

    The grading system depends on the school. But most of the schools I went to used a system of A,B,C,D,F. C was the passing grade and F was failure. Sometimes on tests they used numbers: 90-100 was an A, 80-90 a B, 70-80 a C, 60-70 a D, and less was failure.
