And 12th grade is...? I'm guessing, but is it the 12th class that a pupil normally enters, having started at the age of about five? So a typical 12th-grader might be 17? I'm sorry, but these terms are bandied around and mean different things (or nothing) in different cultures.

You've got it Peter! Once the 12th grade is complete they will head off to college. University in your parlance I believe.

Typically these types of shoots are done either during the summer between 11th and 12th grade or just as 12th grade starts. They'll hand out small 2inch x 4inch versions to their friends and classmates etc. Bigger ones 8x10s to family members etc.

G'day Dads41 + others

May I add some info to this post without hijacking it ....

Australia has a similar education system -
Children enter Primary School about age 6 and complete 6yrs of education before going to High [Secondary] School for another 6 years of education
After completing "Year-12" children are able to move to either a University or TAFE - [Technical and Further Education] system for 2yr to 6yr tertiary studies to then graduate with a Diploma [2 or 3yrs of study] or a degree [4 to 6yrs of study]. There are no such things as 1/2-yr or 1-year Diplomas ... students doing short courses receive a "Certificate" grade 1 or 2 or 3 or 4 depending upon the course & its complexity

Some areas within Australia move years 11 & 12 into a College stream as 'pre-tertiary' studies where the students are treated as full-adults with full personal responsibilities regarding class attendance etc - but with considerable mentoring from tutors - to prepare them for university or commercial life afterwards

Hope this adds something to everyone's knowledge-base
