Back to School: Understand how the US education system works

- Aug/2017

In the United States, the school year begins in August/September and runs through June of the following year. That is, classes start in the early fall and end in early summer. There are 180 class days and vacations in June, July and approximately 20 days in August,  depending on the school district.

There are other shorter vacation periods. A week of “Spring Break,” usually in March or April, Thanksgiving in November and Winter Break in the winter holidays between December and January.

In the public school system, school starts at age 5 and ends the year the child turns 18. This may vary depending on the month that the student has a birthday and his academic performance, of course.

To enroll in a School in the United States, it is always important to have the immigration status according to your profile and your case. This avoids community disruption and rule violation.

The US Citizenship and Immigration Services (USCIS) rules and administrative procedures are constantly being revised. Including rules and methods of combating and detecting fraud. The general orientation is always to be truthful, not to give false information or to present adulterated documents to public agents. Be transparent and respect the local laws.
