slipping sticks

OK, well, about to enter high school, I've got this to say: 13 is for
7th-8th grade, so it's 14 minimum for high school. There are, of course,
exceptions, like in Kansas and Florida they enter school a year older, etc.
Actually, here, in 7th grade, we've got 2 14 and one 15 year old(s). And,
people ARE much smarter, but they didn't learn anything in school, if
they're like me.

The age range for highschool in the US is 13 - 19 (approx). You
usually enter around 13 or 14, and finish four years later (older
but in general, not much wiser). 8-P

Present company exepted, of course . . . .
