Education in Italy
In Italy there are State Schools and Private schools. State Schools are very widespread and better than Private Schools. Children go to the Nursery School when they are 3 until 5 years old. Here they play, sing, draw and start writing. Nursery School isnt compulsory but, nowadays, all Italian children attend it.Then, students attend Primary School for five years, from 6 to 10.When they leave Primary School, they go to the Secondary School of first grade and they attend it for three years, from 11 to 13. School in Italy is compulsory till the age of 16 years.
