Thanks Henry. I don't think it could be 2nd grade either since this person is 15 years old. I have a son in 2nd grade myself, and he's only 7. As for the target language, I'm looking for a US equivalent.
Además hay que señalar el destino (CONTEXTO) porque no se trata de un equivalente en inglés; se trata de un equivalente en determinado país. La terminología empleada en la educación es muy variable entre un país y otro, y es engañosa.
Siendo adolescente que estudia el "segundo básico" en Venezuela, no puede ser "second grade" (7-8 años). Ahora yo no conozco el sistema educativo en Venezuela así que no puedo contestar, pero te recomiendo investigarlo.

Explanation: second grade (Elementary school).
Main article Education in the United States
In the USA elementary schools teach up to grades 5, 6 or 8 and usually also have a kindergarten. Elementary schools in the US are also known as grade schools or grammar schools. The minimum age at the start of elementary schooling varies widely between states with some students starting kindergarten as young as 4½ years and others as old as 6 years."

Notes to answerer
Asker: Sorry, but 2nd grade would be too young. The person in question is a teenager. In the US, 2nd grade is a 7-year-old child. I think the US equivalent would be closer to a freshman or sophomore in high school, or middle school.
