What age ranges are the various versions of Alice aimed at? The home page does not relate versions to ages but rather discribes them in terms of 'Elementary school' and 'High school'. Elementary school, along with 'grades', are not used the UK, nor universally used internationally so do provide a guide.

My son is age 12 (which puts him in High School in year 8 using UK parlance) I wonder which version would suit him best? He is an average ability pupil.

If I understand your question, Alice 2.0-2.2 is for kids mainly around 7-13. Alice 3 is in beta but should be around the same age, or if anything for 14 year olds. Alice is just for introducing kids to the programming world. Did I answer your question?

NOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO

...I mean, 2.2 is basically 2.0, but better. Think about using that instead.
