Elementary is now listed as 2006-2012 birthdays (that means first year schoolgirls could be elementary)
Middle is 9/2003- all of 2008 (2/3 of novice, all schoolgirl, 2/3 of cadet)
High school is defined the same as junior.
There is a 7 year age range to elementary and a 3 year age overlap between elementary and middle school. THIS IS CRAZY.
1.3 year overlap between middle school and HS.
Pocatello had this "elementary" setup last June and from what I hear it was disastrous.
If we are combining age groups for the girls, why not keep it simple and age based. Grade based groupings punish 'smart' kids and make things wildly uneven.
