It depends on what program the student studied. In the United States, school is divided into three stages: elementary, middle, and high school. With the initial one, everything is simple, this is a kind of analog of our first five classes. But in the secondary school there is already differentiation both in subjects and in the level of their development. Well, something like a division into a regular school and a school with advanced study, as it sometimes happens in our country, and this is a school up to 14 years old. High school is not like our school at all, in which the student chooses, very freely, subjects and their volume, and you can only study in high school for two years, and formally get a certificate of graduation, but this is not enough for admission to the” UNIVERSITY”, since each college/university sets its own standards for disciplines and the volume studied in school for applicants, and therefore students focused on further education sit in school for 4 years, and cram their own range of subjects. A student who has chosen a mathematical university and passed the maximum training will easily and without straining pass the Unified State Exam, because his level, well, if he is not a freebie, is closer to the level of a second-year mehmat.
In general, the illusion that in the United States education is so-so is associated with the fact that not so many students go to study a full course, many easily leave school at 14-15, and do not experience any problems in their lives.
