    Student grade levels are determined by the number of years they have attended high school.  A first year high school student is a freshman, a second year is a sophomore, a third year is a junior, and a four year or beyond is a senior. A students graduation status is not determined by their grade placement, but by their meeting the graduation requirements as outlined in this guide.
