So you want to talk about the schools you went to (we don’t ‘visit’ schools by the way, we ‘go’ to them!). After ‘nursery school’ or ‘kindergarten’ you probably went to a ‘primary school’ and then to ‘secondary school’.

If you went to a German ‘Gymnasium’, which we call a ‘grammar school’ in Britain and a ‘high school’ in America, you shouldn’t say that you went to a ‘gymnasium’. A ‘gymnasium‘ is where you do gymnastics, so people might misunderstand you! 😉
