Mary Queen School Complex

My school is a public day school that offers nine years of basic education. Education begins in Primary School, which has six years and is loosely equivalent to elementary school. I teach in lower secondary school, which has three years and is loosely equivalent to Middle School. I teach English in three classes, totaling 15 hours per week.
