Thanks for the clever translation 'facilities'. As for '1 and 2 grau', I'm more confused than ever, but will probably put 'primary and secondary' as GB English. Thanks to all.

Explanation:
Primeiro grau covers the equivalent of the first 8 grades in the US. Segundo grau is high school.

Very recently some of this has been renamed, but primeiro and segundo grau will be with us for quite awhile.

I don't know whether quadra de esportes is indoor or outdoor, I suspect it's indoor.

Elementary, Middle and High School, sports fields outside


Explanation:
Primary - kids start when day are 6-9
Middle School - kids are around 10 to 14

High School in Brazil has only 3 years and students finish around the age of 17

Trust me, I went to school in Brazil

After High School students choose their majors and have to attempt passing Vestibular. It’s a major several days testing that will enable students to enter college.
