If Primary School is the same thing as Middle School you could say la escuela intermida.

To say Highschool in Spanish you would say la escuela secundaria.

The best way to say it is simpler than you think:

Primary school: Escuela primaria

Secondary school: Escuela secundaria

In your example you don't have to write them as plurals, only if you mean that he studied in several schools; the right way of your example would be :

Calatrava asistió a la escuela primaria y secundaria en Valencia.

You might be interested in this thread which contains a description by a native of Barcelona.

las escuelas de España

  • Educacion primaria (obligatoria): hasta los 12 años
    • Educacion secundaria obligatoria (ESO, 4 años): 13- 16 años
    • Bachillerato (2 años): 17-18 años
    • Universidad
  • These leaves me confused as to what years el colegio covers (just the Bachillerato?) or is the term colegio not used in Spain.
