    Senior High school is the exact same thing as High school, just a different name. Like in my town we have Austin Senior high (high school) and Austin junior high (middle school).

    Senior High School is another name for High School.

    I.E. Junior High School = 6th - 8th grade

    Senior High School = 9th -12th grade

    Some school districts star middle school at 5th grade and/or high school at 10th grade.

    Someone who graduated High School is usually 18. Therefore, if they graduated in 1999, they would now be 29.

    To the first poster... yes, senior high school exists. Sr. High is what most people think of as high school, whereas Jr. High is seventh and eighth grade--you do highschoolish things, but in a small building, and at age 12.

    "Senior High School" is the same as "High School." Some schools just add this into their name to distinguish themselves from a "Junior High School."

    ... wow there is no such thing as senior high school. at least not in the states. they probably ment they were a senior in high school. if they graduated in '99 and were 17-19 then now they would be 28-30.
