Most students are seventeen or eighteen years old when they leave high schools. There are two kinds of schools in America: public schools and private(私立) schools. Most children go to public schools. Their parents do not have to pay for their education, because the schools receive money from the country. If a child goes to a private school, his parents have to get enough money for his schooling.
