Sophomores are not yet upperclassmen but they're more respected than Freshman. Freshman look up to upperclassmen. Many Freshmen feel intimidated by upperclassmen.

The Upperclassmen and the Freshman.......(STORY)
Freshman: "Hey whats up? I heard theres a party tonight, can you tell me where its at?
Junior: Um...Your a freshman right?
The Juniors and Seniors of a high school they are attending. In other words, eleventh and twelfth graders.
Often they are feared the non-upperclassmen, usually freshmen.
Eleventh Grader: YES! We're eleventh graders! That makes us upperclassmen!!!
Ninth Grader: Uh-ohh.... I'm afraid of getting in the way of an upperclassmen....
people who are "upperclassmen" aren't immature 9th graders. they are seniors and juniors, or the top grades in a school. everyone other than the youngest. freshman in high school are not upperclassmen, and shouldn't call themselves upperclassmen. 6th graders are basically the same social status as 9th graders, if not better.
"wow 7th grader you can't be mean to me. you're talking to an upperclassmen"-freshman
"actually you arent cool and your a freshman, not an upperlcassmen. you aren't a senior or junior, yeah your not coool."-7th grader and the rest of the world
10th,11th,and 12th graders in high school who think they have the right to be complete assholes and be jerks to all of the freshman just because they have been there longer.
