enseñanza primaria or enseñanza general básica EGB


Explanation:
K-12 is a US acronym for "kindergarten to 12 years of age education" meaning the educational cycle performed by a child until he/she is 12 yo. In Spanish that would be enseñanza primaria or enseñanza general básica

Kindergarten through 12th grade

not 12 years of age, but 12th grade (last year of high school), so
desde el Jardin infantil (o Kinder)hasta el ultimo año de bachillerato

(I realize a US high school and a bachillerato are not totally equivalent...)

Desde preescolar hasta fin de la escuela primaria


Explanation:
Lo que en USA es "kindergarten", se traduce en varios países latinoamericanos incluyendo Argentina como "preescolar", es decir, la educación que reciben los niños de 5 años que al año siguiente entrarán a 1er grado de la primaria. Por otro lado, lo que aquí en US se llama "preschool" es el "jardín de infantes" (de 3-4 años).

jardín infantil a grado doce de escuela superior


Explanation:
K-12. K = Kindergarten (Jardín Infantil). Do not use preschool as this refers to school before Kindergarten such as it is provided by many day cares.

12 = means 12th grade.

I would translated...

para sistemas escolares desde el Jardín Infantil hasta el grado 12 e industrias dentro de la distancia conmutativa de Moorhead.

Good Luck!

Enseñanza preescolar, EGB y polimodal


Explanation:

Me parece que es el equivalente argentino actual del K-12. El polimodal es un nivel post-obligatorio para alumnos/as de 15 a 17 años, y dura 3 años.

El equivalente mexicano sería "de preescolar a preparatoria (o bachillerato)".
Pero,¿para qué país es?

La referencia es una página sobre el sistema educativo argentino.

Suerte.

para distritos escolares de primaria y secundaria


Explanation:
Leave out "enseñanza". I use "primaria y secundaria" all the time in my translations for a professor of educational psychology at the University of Murcia. In context, everyone knows what it means. As for EGB, BUP, and COU, these terms are limited to Spain, and it sounds to me like you're translating for the American market. American Hispanics will probably not know what these mean.
