What are schools like in China?

Elementary school, middle school, high school

The schools are much harder than other countries because the students are not given a free ride through school and into college.

If they are not doing well they can not get into high school

In middle school they attend classes two Saturdays each month, in high school they attend classes on Saturday.

I was in China three years ago and they had classes on Sunday, because Monday was China's birthday so they had to make up the lost day.
