NOTE: Table shows the number of regular public schools (it excludes schools that are completely vocational, special education, or alternative) that enrolled students in the 2005–06 school year. Reading down, the column displays the lowest grade offered in a school. Reading across, the row displays the highest grade offered. The table shows the number of schools in each combination of lowest and highest grades offered. For example, there were 480 schools that offered only prekindergarten, but 11,471 that included grades from prekindergarten through grade 5. Note that "ungraded" is shown as the lowest or highest grade in only the 35 schools that are completely ungraded.
