    junior year in high school

    The translation for "my junior year" goes "the graduating class", but I think it's wrong. Considering American highschools are composed mainly four years of "freshman(9th), sophomore(10th), junior(11th), senior(12th)", junior year is right before senior year. But I found some American highschools have 10th-12th, so is there a possibility that such schools have "freshman(10th), sophomore(11th), junior(12th)", so junior means graduating class?

    ex) I
    daydreamed about basketball becausethat was the future (that) I desired. Dreamingallowed me to visualizewhat I wanted most. Itenabled me to feelthe excitement of achieving my dream. If you dream and do nothing, it is only a dream. Most people think their dreams will never come true. I was one of those people until my junior year in high school. My favorite teacher, Ms. Monaghan, told me something that changed my attitude: “You can do anything you put your mind to.

    No, if the high school is grades 10-12, they would be sophomore, junior, senior. Senior year is the final year always. It doesn't make logical sense to have "junior" as the highest level.

    You are correct, it's wrong. The junior year is always the penultimate year (barring failing a grade )
