The term schoolboy is used to describe a boy who attends school. Schoolboys are typically aged between 5 and 19 years. Preteen schoolchildren are called "pupils" in some places; in other places, all schoolchildren are called "students".
In many countries, schoolchildren must wear a school uniform. A typical traditional boy's school uniform consists of a shirt and short or long pants. Usually, younger schoolboys wear shorts and older boys wear long pants.
