There is no ninth grade in Spanish education system. It works like this:

Primaria (el cole)

Primero, segundo, tercero....hasta sexto

Estoy en sexto de primaria

No need to say

Estoy en sexto curso de primaria

But possible and grammatical.

Secundaria is called 'ESO' Enseñanza Secundaria Obligatoria

Primero de ESO (age 12)

Cuarto de ESO (Age 16)

Then we have bachillerato, baccalaurate, 2 years.

Primero de Bachillerato, segundo.

In Ireland, a ninth grader is a kid aged 15, matching the Spanish 'Estoy en tercero de ESO'

In Mexico it's very similar to Spain, and works like this:

Year
1
2
3
4
5
6
7
8
9
10
11
12

Grade (Mexico)
Primero de primaria
Segundo de primaria
Tercero de primaria
Cuarto de primaria
Quinto de primaria
Sexto de primaria
Primero de secundaria
Segundo de secundaria
Tercero de secundaria
Primero y Segundo de prepa(ratoria) (La prepa va por semestres)
Tercero y Cuarto de prepa
Quinto y Sexto de prepa.

Grade (US)
First Grade
Second Grade
Third Grade
Fourth Grade
Fifth Grade
Sixth Grade
Seventh Grade
Eighth Grade
Ninth Grade
Tenth Grade
Eleventh Grade
Twelfth Grade


So something similar to "I'm in 9th grade" would be "Voy en tercero de secundaria".

If you want to be more specific, remember that primero, segundo, tercero, cuarto etc., aren't referring to grades (grados)-- they refer to the year (for primaria y secundaria): "Voy en tercero de secundaria" = "Voy en tercer año de secundaria". For the prepa, the ordinal numbers refer to the semester you're in. So "cuarto de prepa" would be the second half of 11th grade.

Quiero aportar algo a este hilo en caso de que a alguien le interese. En Cuba, ''9th grader'' se refiere a un estudiante de noveno grado. Por otra parte, en vez de preparatoria decimos ''preuniversitario''.

Saludos a todos.

My two cents, I have two kids, 16 and 17, in the same grade. They would say: estoy en bachillerato (primero o segundo). Soy de bachillerato. Being 15 years, they would say: estoy en cuarto de secundaria.

There was someone who was 14 and he's a junior. I am confused. I am a freshman. Is that the same thing as junior? I thought junior would be 11th grade, and freshman(for high school) 9th grade
