Do you call it Grade School, Grammar School, or Elementary School?

Is there any difference between Grade School, Grammar School, and Elementary School? In the US, these are common names for the school that a child attends. I think this usually refers to the school one attends from kindergarten through fifth grade (ages 5-10?). Is it a regional thing in terms of the name that is used? Is grammar school an archaic use? I think Junior High and Middle School are also somewhat synonymous, no?
