Secondary Education in Washington: private boarding schools for international students

The lack of a unified educational system has led to the fact that each state has its own training system. In Washington, school education is divided into three levels - Elementary school, Middle school, High school.

In high school, children will face serious testing from two levels - SAT I and SAT II - in mathematical / optional disciplines. The two main types of schools are public / private, while Washington's private boarding schools are considered a more suitable option for foreigners.
