What does ES stand for?

Elementary school

ES is an acronym for "elementary school," which is where students get their primary education. The acronym is typically used when typing to save on space and keystrokes.

In the United States, elementary school usually includes grades 1 to 5 or 1 to 6. After kids graduate elementary school, they enter into middle, or junior high, school (grades 6 to 8 or 7 to 9), then high school (grades 9 to 12 or 10 to 12) to receive their secondary education. After graduating high school, many students receive further schooling at a university.
