Why grades 6-12 are usually mentioned separatey?

What do you learn in 6-12 grades? What do you learn before grade 6?

I din't fall from the sky LOL but I didn't go to school in the US. I studied under a different system and I'm curious to learn about US education. For me, it was broken down as 1-3, 4-8 and 9-10. In grades 1-3 we learned to read and write and do basic math. In 4-8 history and science was introduced, math and writing was further developed. 9-10 was college prep. What do people learn in grades 6-12?

Thank you.

    6-8 middle school. Grammar, improving writing (ie essays) improving weak points in math (like fractions, percents, decimals..) Getting ready for high curriculum in high school like more homework, more exams, more tests. Main thing is to IMPROVE anything you're struggling on.

    9-12 high school. Algebra, Geometry, biology, calculus, American History, Government, Literature. Prepare to go to college by doing different exams that will determine which college you go to. (Ie: SAT) Again, improving the weak points, so you won't struggle in college.
