    What to call students in each year

    I know that four-year college students are called freshmen, sophomores, juniors and seniors.
    Now, what are two-year college students called, freshmen and sophmores, or juniors and seniors?
    How about three-year highschool students?

    I don't know about junior colleges. But a 3 year high school would not differ from a 4 year one. 10th graders would be sophomores.

    Sorry, SD, but you'll have to accept that many members may be as ignorant as I.

    How does '10th grader' fit into a 'junior college' and a '3 year high school' system?

    I was speaking of high schools. They are for the 9th through 12th grades, typically. A "middle school" is for grades 6-8.

    Some schools systems separate the classes differently and have a junior high for 7-9 and a senior high for 10-12.

    In either system a 10th grader is a sophomore, 11th a junior, and 12th a senior.

    Re: What to call students in each year

    My older daughter is 15 and will be a 10th grader or sophomore next year. She will turn 16 about halfway through her year, so she will be 18 when she finishes her senior year/12 grade.
    I'm not a teacher, but I write for a living. Please don't ask me about 2nd conditionals, but I'm a safe bet for what reads well in (American) English.
