Argentina school system

The school starts at half past seven with the national anthem. The students are required to wear uniforms during the thirteen years of their formal education, from ages 6 to 19. At six years, when children start school, they must take an oath on the national flag. My school has a computer in the classrooms but not so in all schools. I attend a classic lyceum and I study Humanities, Math, Latin, Italian and English.In Argentina all children between the ages of six and fourteen have to go to school, by law. Free education is available to everyone and the literacy rate is over 95%. High-school education is generally both affordable and available, although attendance falls by nearly half among those older than 14. There are state and private schools for primary and secondary level; those in the city areas are usually better equipped than those in the country. School curricula include Science, Mathematics, Languages, Art, History, Sport and Geography. Among Latin American countries Argentina has the highest levels of education and literacy.Secondary education in Argentina comprises two levels. Years 1st to 3rd are common to all schools (Ciclo básico). Years 4th to 6th are organized in orientations (Ciclo orientado) such as Social Sciences, Natural Sciences, Arts, Sport, Design, etc. An additional year is offered in certain schools (Technical-Professional schools), which grants a professional title, also with orientations (agriculture, electricity, mechanics, construction).In many provinces the secondary education system is still divided in three traditional large groups, "Bachiller" schools (very similar to grammar schools with a huge emphasis on humanistic studies), "Comercial" schools (focusing on economic sciences and everything related to it) and "Escuelas Técnicas" (with a focus on technical and scientific assignments, this one having the particularity of lasting six years instead of five, it is called "Industrial") each one subdivided in more specific orientations related to its main branch. There is a network of vocational schools across the country many of which are associated with the National Technological University. These provide viable alternatives to the secondary school system, for young people wanting to enter more practical occupations. Then when you finish the Vocational Education you are instantly admitted to a university. The percentage of individuals attending and completing university degree programs is 3.2% of the population, the second highest in the world after France. The country’s public university system is also free of charge. The university system has nearly 70 institutions, divided equally between national institutions (including a few provincially sponsored), public institutions, and private institutions.

The wonderful Argentine

School system

My name is Sol Fernndez, I am 16 years old, I live in Santa Rosa in Argentina . The alarm goes off before dawn, I wake up in a bad mood and let the warm blankets to the icy floor . We go out that the sun is rising , with the bitter cold of the morning that wakes up suddenly . At 4 o’clock I go to clean the stables. At 5 o’clock I take a shower, brush my teeth, change clothes and prepare the rucksack. At half past five I have a breakfast: I drink orange juice, milk and I eat a slice of cake. At quarter to six I take the bus that brings me to Buenos Aires and then I go to school.I like the school but, like everyone, I hate some subjects: mathematics, chemistry and physics. Certainly my favorite subject is lunch time ... even if the food is not good as what kitchen my mom. School ends at 3:30 and I get home at 5:00. From 5:00 to 7:00 I do my homework and I have dinner at 7:30. Usually after dinner, I watch TV, but sometimes I read a book; 10:30 I go to sleep in my soft bed.
