70.17.206.250's edit to this article[edit]

Can anyone check to see whether 70.17.206.250's edit is currently correct?? Georgia guy 21:18, 15 Feb 2005 (UTC)

  • While a survey of the grade designations and divisions of the 50 states would be valuable, it is not currently readily available afaik. The assessment by the anon reflects my understanding as well. I do not think the article (or those of the other grades) would be improved by an exhaustive list of how the grade is designated and organized in each state. - Keith D.

Grade 8 is high school in someplaces[edit]

Where I live in Surrey BC, grade 8 is the first grade in secondary "high" schools, well atlest at my school, I do think it's different around Canada. The page should be changed to show that. Windscar77 00:07, 19 November 2006 (UTC)

"and many other nations"?[edit]

From what is featured in the article it would seem that only one other nation, Canada, uses the term 'eighth grade'. Should this not be removed from the article's first line?86.16.139.140 (talk) 22:11, 3 September 2008 (UTC)


Notability[edit]

This article (along with other the articles in its series) does not strike me as being particularly noteworthy. I have already proposed Fifth grade for deletion, and will most likely propose this one for deletion as well should the deletion of fifth grade go through. Ekips (talk) 23:07, 6 December 2008 (UTC)

Smart Eighth Graders[edit]

Some eighth graders are offered to take high school classes. These very smart thirteen year olds are our future. —Preceding unsigned comment added by 70.100.155.59 (talk) 01:08, 29 January 2009 (UTC)

Quebec[edit]

I added a brief section about Quebec under international, since it is significantly different from that in the rest of Canada. Please see above about notability, as well. Jmajeremy (talk) 06:01, 25 November 2009 (UTC)

i am in the 8th grade. i have much trouble in regular school and were looking into this online schooling program very closley. but we dont know how much it costs! —Preceding unsigned comment added by 74.136.216.190 (talk) 00:47, 3 September 2010 (UTC)

Dubious[edit]

I've added this section to the TalkPage, since I flagged one or more unreferenced details with the {Dubiopus} tag. For example, in the U.S. "Junior High" is either 8th & 9th Grades —making the Eighth Grade the first of that level— or is 7th/8th/9th grades —making the 8th the second of that level— not the "second and final grade of junior high"'. — DennisDallas (talk) 12:48, 2 June 2011 (UTC)

  • That's not true. Many California junior high schools are 7th & 8th grades. Last I checked, California was still part of the United States. OCNative (talk) 08:31, 12 July 2011 (UTC)

Is this article necessary?[edit]

Why are there articles for each grade? Shouldn't there really be just a single consolidated article about the US grade system, to which all grade references refer? Seems to me this would cut out a lot of duplication.Gymnophoria (talk) 20:09, 4 December 2011 (UTC)

I agree. This needs to be discussed in the context of the proposed confusing merge suggested below. Dbfirs 06:47, 21 October 2016 (UTC)

Proposed merge with Year Eight[edit]

Much of the content about the specific countries is already covered in the eighth grade article. There is no reason why they should be separate, even if they have a separate name. "Year 8" is mentioned in the eighth grade article and that is a more complete article. For not all the countries in the eighth grade article are called "eighth grade" either. - CHAMPION (talk) (contributions) (logs) 04:36, 21 October 2016 (UTC)

The problem with this confusing merge is that the most common use of "Year eight" does not correspond with the most common use of "Eighth grade". It would be better to redirect each number to a general article where the system is explained. Dbfirs 06:46, 21 October 2016 (UTC)

Move discussion in progress[edit]

There is a move discussion in progress on Talk:Eighth Grade (film) which affects this page. Please participate on that page and not in this talk page section. Thank you. —RMCD bot 15:21, 25 September 2018 (UTC)
