    The UK has 13 - start at 4/5 and leave at 18.

    Yes, in most European countries, students go to school for 12 years, not counting kindergarten. They're called different things, though. For example, in France, instead of starting in 1st grade and working up, the numbers get smaller as you get older, so students in the 4th grade are two years older than those in 6th. In the UK, it's quite different. Secondary school is through age 16. The years from 16-18, which not everyone does, are called "college". After that, students to a university. Also, many university programs in Europe are only 3 years, and in the UK, students at 18 go directly into a medical or law school- they don't have to get a 4 year undergraduate school first.

      I think it would save a lot of money if the USA would do it the way the UK does.
