Best Answer

Because most High Schools (in the US) consist of 9th-12th grades. 9th = Freshmen, 10th = Sophmore, 11th = Junior, and 12th = Senior. While some areas have 9th grade at the Jr High ans some others break High School into a 9th/10th and 11th/12th schools. The vast majority of High Schools in the US have 9th-12th grades. This is most likely to resemble a similar structure to a 4 year University and to prepare students for University.

The age should not be a major discrepancy in junior high schools, since 6th graders (age 11-12) are in many of the same adolescent phases as the older students (age 12-14). Conversely, post-pubescent 8th graders may share more problems with high school students, especially 9th graders, than with the younger students.

Never go out with some one that much older then you well at least not when you are a fourth grade. Your situation is like a 5th grader dating a high school student. Dating in your school like trid graders and fifth graders is alright. But an eighth grader no. And sorry to burst you bubble but eighth graders tend to like middle school students, I should know.

Why year seven should be part of high school?

Not everyone would agree that grade seven should be a part of high school. In fact, many would argue that it should not be a part of high school. Due to the difference in age and maturity of seventh graders and high school, having middle schools with grades 6, 7, and 8 or just grades 7 and 8 is actually a good way to divide the grades.
