Dear all.

Desperate house wives
Mom: Let's just say if I was a senior in high school, I'd be saying, "Wow, you're a hot fifth grader."
Daughter: Oh, well, of course it's gonna sound gross if you say it that way.

I wonder the term of high school in the US education system is four years.
I mean the first year in high school is called freshman, the second year sophomore, the third year junior and the fourth year senior?

If so, the term of elementary school is five years and that of middle school is three year, so the total term from elementary school to high school is 12 years.

Is that correct?

Thank you for your help.
