Spanish term or phrase: Correspondientes a la educación, al bachillerato, y a la educación media
I am translating a diploma from the Dominican Republic. In it, it says that the student: "Aprobó el Plan de Estudios y las Pruebas Nacionales de Conclusión, correspondientes:
• a la educación N/A
• al Bachillerato, Mención general
• A la Educación Media, modalidad general"

I was unsure of how to translate the bulleted points, but here is my attempt:

The student "Passed the Course of Study and National Graduation Examinations corresponding to the:
• Elementary School Diploma N/A
• High School Diploma
• Middle School Diploma"

I saw a similar post on ProZ that indicated that "bachillerato de modalidad general" translates to "high school diploma," and I believe that "bachillerato, mención general" is an equivalent expression. It also stated that "educación media, modalidad general" could be translated as middle school diploma. I just wanted to check if that is the case in the Dominican Republic. Also, I wasn't really able to find anything for the first bullet point, other than this post on a Wordreference forum (ón-al-bac... that specified it had to do with elementary school. Thanks so much for any guidance!
