Regular school includes nursery school, kindergarten, elementary, middle school/junior high, high school, colleges, universities and professional schools which advance a person toward an elementary or high school diploma, college, university, or professional degree. Attendance can be full or part time, during the day or night. Among those attending, EDGRADE specifies the grade in which the student is enrolled.
