I've always said high school (and everyone I grew up with) but it was only after starting uni that I realised alot of people say secondary school.
I grew up in NW London btw

Our school had 'high' in the name so I tend to that. I do use both, though.
I tend to say secondary school, but my brother's school had "high" in its name so I use high school occasionally.
Secondary for majority of the schools in the UK. High school for USA and probably rest of the world.
Mostly people in uk says secondary school but for some countries they say high school

It depends on the school - a lot of post-primary schools aren't "secondary" schools or high schools. I just say "school"!
primary and secondary school not low and high school
Where I lived, it was always secondary school or comprehensive.
The high school was a private school up the road for the stupid kids (despite the 10k/year fees they still got worse A level results than the two local comps).
Secondary school. Never called it high school.
