Back to School in Lima


A dear friend of mine, Diego, has a sister who is currently attending school in La Molina, Lima, Perú. Ariana is a secondary school student. There are many ways to organize schools. In the United States schools are often (usually) organized in a 3-stage system: elementary school, middle school, and high school. In Perú, schools are often organized in a 2-stage system: primary school and secondary school. Primary school often goes to 5th or 6th grade. Let's get to know Ariana's school experience a bit more!
