    Assuming that you are female (from the picture) and have had a normal puberty thus far, than no, not much. Girls begin and complete their growth spurts before boys do, which is why they are taller and much more mature looking for a couple of years during early adolescence (late middle school).

    According to midparental height for a girl, which is calculated:

    [ Father's height - 5 (in inches) + mother's height (in inches) / 2 ] +/- 2 inches,

    you should be between 57.5 (4'7-1/2") and 61.5 (4'11-1/2") inches tall at full maturity.

    Furthermore, if you look at the CDC Growth Chart (http://www.cdc.gov/growthcharts/data/set1clinical/... you'll see that there's very little growth in height after ~14 years of age in girls. You may gain another half inch or so.

    I hope this isn't disappointing, but you're right on track. Because of your genetic endowment (i.e. your parents' heights), this was virtually predetermined. Try to be comfortable with yourself, because you can't make yourself taller! Take care!

    You will probably peak at 4'11 at 15 but if you are a late bloomer it could be several inches better.

    Your body keeps growing at a good rate until you're about 18 or so. It then grows at a slower rate. I think you probably have a little more growing to do!
