Can a person be over 20 and still be in high school?

im writing a story and one of my characters is suppose to be a rebel and aged and still in school, i was going to make her 19 and held back a grade because she didnt try hard but 19 seems a little too common.

so the question is...how old can i go?

  • When my boys were in high school in Maryland several years ago, I learned that legally a student could keep taking classes until age 21.
