The school system in the United States is divided into primary and secondary schools. If you move to the United States, we recommend that you familiarize yourself with the school’s general settings for classes, hours, conditions, and services. Children usually graduate in kindergarten or first grade (ages 5-6) and after 12th grade (17 or 18 years). In rare cases, a student may have to re-evaluate due to a long absence or low grade.
After 12 years of kindergarten, it usually consists of “5-3-4 plan” which are 1-5 for elementary grades, 6-8 for middle, and 9-12 for high school. Options are available for this plan. Whether it is a 6-3-3 or 6-2-4 plan, the basic national law program for each class remains unchanged.

About Middle School Hours
The school year usually lasts from the beginning of September to May or June (9 months) and is divided into “neighborhoods” or semesters (semesters). Most schools use the two-year semester method-fall (September-December) and spring (January-May). Some schools use a branch system that consists of three sessions: fall (September-December), winter (January-March) and spring (March-May or June).
Holiday dates are announced in advance by the school and parents have plenty of time to plan family vacations. As a rule, parents are not allowed to take a child out of the classroom and inform the teacher as soon as possible, without going to the doctor or dentist.
AISD Middle Start and End Times (School Hours)
School hours may vary in middle school, but there is usually a one-hour lunch break from 8 a.m. to 3 p.m. or 3:30 p.m. In middle school, students get four 90-minute sessions, each lasting six hours or 10 minutes. Additional curriculum and sports are planned after school.

In most states, students need to be vaccinated against various diseases before starting school. These include polio, DPT (diphtheria, tetanus and pertussis or whooping cough) and MMR (measles, mumps, rubella or measles).
States Legally of Middle School Hours
Typically, a student has one teacher in all major subjects in the elementary class and one teacher in each subject in high school. Although some states legally allow children to drop out of school at age 16 (this is called a dropout), it is not generally recommended (less employment opportunities for them without a high school diploma in the United States), but most students go to school at age 18 years old.
If you select a specific public school or school district, you will usually need to find a home in a specific school area. Schools prefer to start children’s school at the beginning of the new school year, but it is not necessary.

Self-Service Between Middle School Hours
Middle school children often bring lunch to school, but some schools allow children who are close to school to go home for lunch. Most primary and secondary schools have self-service bars where children can eat and some children receive free meals through local social security programs.
Middle school students are given lockers for books and much more. Schools provide bicycle racks for school going students and arrange parking for middle school students.
My passion for learning is associated with personal satisfaction and many of the benefits that help me learn something new. I have published number of review articles with internationally reputed, and I respond to the personal queries of the students related to the subject throughout the day on AISD Portal.
