Not exactly.  In my home town, the 8th grade was in the high  school.  I was 
an eleven-yo 8th grader when she was a senior.  I  knew she had married (and 
presumably started the daughter) during her  senior year, but having her oldest 
child in my class was still odd.  I  believe she was around 30 at the time, 
and the daughter was 12.
