What’s the difference between “high school” and “highschool”?

Secondary schools are often called high schools in the United States, One is called middle school and consists grades 6, 7, and 8. And the other is called high school and has grades 9 through 12. A person generally starts middle school at age 11 or 12 and starts high school at age 14 or 15 and finishes at age 18.

However this is w.r.t United States while other countries might have different explanations for the same term

The difference is easy to understand.

  • High school is correct.
  • Highschool is incorrect.

It’s correctly written as two words, but readers will understand it as a compound word when used as an adjective.

  • She’s a senior in the local high school.
  • Their interminable petty arguments seem like adolescent highschool behavior more than debates.

Is “highschool” supposed to be one word or two words?

High School is supposed to be two words to write it correctly
