What does "K through eight" mean?
Good question! "K" stands for kindergarten, and "8" stands for grade eight. You can think of the public school system in North America as being made up of kindergarten, primary/elementary school (grades one to five), middle school (grades six to eight), and high school (grades nine to twelve). Of course, there may be some slight differences depending on the school or region, but "K to 8" generally means all the school grades from kindergarten to middle school. Pre-K stands for pre-kindergarten (which usually consists of students of daycare age, around 2-4). Ex: I took piano lessons from K to 12. Ex: We will be adding computer literacy classes starting in pre-K.
