Of these, 24 million were in prekindergarten through grade 6, 17.9 million were in grades 7 through 12, and 0.8 million were in ungraded classes. Nearly 2.5 million teachers provided instruction for these students, with 1,362,000 teachers in elementary schools and 213,000 in secondary schools.

Some 2,212,000 students received regular high school diplomas in 1991-92 school year, and an additional 64,000 received other types of diplomas.
