 Our district is slighty different than most others on CM.  All of the buildings are on one campus, the district owns the roads, parking lots, land, and buildings, several acres of land.  One building houses the district offices as well as the elementary which is k-6.  The other building houses the middle school (grades 7-8) and the high school (grades 9-12).  You go to school with same group of kids from k-12.

same in my district, however in my state the "intermediate" school is usually run by the county and all communities in the county help fund it through property taxes, it houses all of the special needs type programs that can't be run in individual schools due to expense or not enough need in particular areas. like in my town, there are a small amount of kids who are profoundly challenged, to fund one classroom and have all the needs met, would not be cost efficient to the district or beneficial to the stdents, so they are bussed to a school in a central location with other students with simialr needs.

Quoting diaperstodating:

Elementary School: Pre K - 5
Middle School: 6 - 8
High School: 9 - 12

Pre-K Center   we have 1 pre-k center in the public schools

Elementary School K-6    we have 6 elementary schools

Middle 7-8    we have 2 middle schools

High school 9-12   we have 2 high schools

It's really awkward for the 6th graders.  They honestly don't fit in anywhere.  They don't fit in socially with the elementary school kids, and they don't fit in with the middle school kids.  They are stuck in between.  Our district has tried them in both schools.  I can honestly say from teaching 5th and 6th graders (currently teaching 7th) that they are just a different breed all together...lol   It was my least favorite grade to teach.

My son's school is preK-12 in the same building, just different wings.  The elementary is K-6. Jr high is 7-9. High school is 10-12.  There's about 800 kids total K-12.
