Highschool or High School?

Post by Mr Greg »

Which version do you think is correct?

One of the commonly used terms in education is “high school,” but many people misspell it as “highschool.”

Very informative, thanks.
But as far as I know, in Hong Kong and other Commonwealth countries like India, Pakistan, Bangladesh, high schools are called colleges, and in mainland China there are middle schools that include students from ages of 13 to 18. The same are divided into junior high schools or senior high schools in other parts of the country.
Would you clarify that?

I am working in Hong Kong and college is not used here. Secondary school is more commonly used than high school.

In the UK, where I grew up, college and high school are two different things. High school is right after primary and is compulsory.
