Negative numbers[edit]

this is all wrong!

It fails to mention so many aspects of what 7th grade is all about. My students just finished argumentative essays, they are creating Instagrams to show character development, and they are always incorporating the arts into English assignments. This page needs to reflect the complexity of what 7th graders do! It's more than just reading, writing, and arithmetic. The 1940s called and they want their subjects back... — Preceding unsigned comment added by (talk) 04:24, 13 March 2014 (UTC)


I don't think that it should be mentioned what students are learning, it varies from state to state, country to country. —Preceding unsigned comment added by Angelstarstar (talkcontribs) 06:57, 5 January 2009 (UTC)

I agree, Angelstarstar, and sign all your posts using 4 tildes. -- 01:10, 24 December 2011 (UTC) (whoops, too many tildes) — Preceding unsigned comment added by (talk)

7th grade students are usually 11-15 years old?[edit]

I didn't know that seventh grade students were usually 11-15 years old. I guess kids these days are so bad that they are repeating. --Alchaenist (talk) 03:47, 30 June 2009 (UTC)

Luckily, in Japan there's no repeats :) -- (talk) 01:09, 24 December 2011 (UTC)

Proposed merge with Year Seven[edit]

Much of the content about the specific countries is already covered in the seventh grade article. There is no reason why they should be separate, even if they have a separate name. "Year 7" is mentioned in the seventh grade article and that is a more complete article. For not all the countries in the seventh grade article are called "seventh grade" either. - CHAMPION (talk) (contributions) (logs) 04:37, 21 October 2016 (UTC)

I would prefer not to implement this confusing merge because the numbers do not correspond in different systems. Rather than try to merge conflicting numbering systems, it would be preferable to redirect each number to a general article about the numbering system used (grade for the US and year for the UK) and to mention the regions where these systems are used.

I agree, two general articles would be better. All the best: Rich Farmbrough, 11:41, 25 February 2017 (UTC).
