How do Americans refer to secondary school? Is it senior high school, high school or something else?

This would be in the context of a conversation. For example say somebody was saying 'my last year in (senior?) high school'.

    Usually just high school, but sometimes senior high school. It goes like this:

    Elementary school or grade school (kindergarden-5th or 6th grade)

    Middle school or junior high (6th or 7th grade-8th grade)

    High school or senior high school (9th grade-12th grade)

    Junior High School is typically grades 6-8, while High School is grades 9-12. A 12-grader in high school is called a Senior, an 11-grader is a Junior, a 10th-grader is a Sophomore, and a 9th-grader is a Freshman. After Senior year in high school, the person moves on to college/university.

    Hope that helped! :3

    Well a senior is a person who's in their last year of high school. Now for secondary school do you mean middle school? I don't think you did, cause when someone is in their last year of middle school they're an 8th grader. Now there are seniors in college too. But college isn't secondary school, middle school is.
