    grade level

    I have several questions concerning school.

    Should school be plural or singular?


    elementary school is from grade 1 to grade 6
    elementary schools are from grade 1 to grade 6

    Second question,

    Which one is the correct way to count grades?

    from grade 1 to grade 6
    from the first grade to the sixth grade
    from first grade to sixth grade


    When is it necessary to use the in front of grade

    for example which one is correct?

    I'm in the first grade
    I'm in first grade


    Third question,

    If I say school levels,in the plural, does it refer to levels such as grade 1, 2 ,3, 4 etc; or, levels in different schools or different places.

    Context will govern which you use. Both are acceptable. The first can be regarded as a general statement, the second as specific.

    "In this country's educational structure, elementary school is from....".

    "Elementary schools are from grade 1 to grade 6, while secondary schools...."


    Second question,

    Which one is the correct way to count grades?

    from grade 1 to grade 6
    from the first grade to the sixth grade
    from first grade to sixth grade

    All three are acceptable.

    When is it necessary to use the in front of grade
    for example which one is correct?

    I'm in the first grade
    I'm in first grade

    Again, both are acceptable.


    Third question,

    If I say school levels, in the plural, does it refer to levels such as grade 1, 2, 3, 4 etc; or, levels in different schools or different places.

    That will depend on your context - it could be either.
