In Poland, children are obligated to attend school at 7 years of age (before that, they can attend pre-school education). They first go to a primary school which takes 8 years and then they will continue their education at another school for secondary education. Depending on the type of secondary education, they attend secondary school 3, 4, or 5 years approximately.
