    grade or class

    Dear teachers,
    In America, do you use "grade" or "class"?
    For example: I teach English to students of grade 1 to 10. I teach English to students of class 1 to 10.
    In our country, sometimes we use both. But which is commonly used in America?

    Thanks.

    Re: grade or class

    First grade through tenth grade is much more common than "grade 1 to 10."

    (That would be a very unusual age range to teach. 9th - 12 grade is high school.)
    I'm not a teacher, but I write for a living. Please don't ask me about 2nd conditionals, but I'm a safe bet for what reads well in (American) English.

    In BE it's 'year'.

    'I teach English to children in years four to six.'

    If I want to exclude fifth year, is it correct to say 'I teach English to children in years four and six.'?
