In America, you have different schools whose programs include either elementary school (ages 5-11); middle school (11-14); and high school (14-18) or elementary school (ages 5-12); Junior high (ages 12-14); and high school (ages 14-18). If education level is insufficient to move up in a grade, you can get “held back” and be required to repeat a grade in America.
England tends to use public transport more, especially the closer you are England. and cars aren`t as big of a necessity. Buses, bicycles, trains, taxis, and even walking on their own two legs are more commonly used sources of transportation. In America, the geographical distance is large, requiring most of Americans to own cars as their main method of transport. It is difficult to walk or use public transport. Driving age in England is 17 while in America, ages vary by state from 15 (in rural areas like Wyoming) to 17.
