The education system is based on the British with
seven-year primary school and three- or five-year secondary
school. Investments in the education system have been made
during the 1990s and the 00s, and today 95% of the children
in primary school begin. Most of these continue in secondary
school. In principle, the entire population is literate, but
the level of education is still low. The investments in
adult education have been extensive. See TOPSCHOOLSINTHEUSA for TOEFL, ACT, SAT testing locations and high school codes in Saint Vincent and The Grenadines.
