Sophomores are not yet upperclassmen but they're more respected than Freshman. Freshman look up to upperclassmen. Many Freshmen feel intimidated by upperclassmen. But its good for the Freshman to *try* to get on their good side.

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

The older people in high school(usually 11th and 12th graders) that think they have the right to leave out freshmen, treat them like they don't matter and always telling them to fuck off. They also tend to get lazy as fuck and party their dicks and pussies all night long on Fridays and weekends.
Guy 1: Hey dude can you please take me out to that party that's going on this Friday?
Guy 2: Dude, what grade are ya in?
Guy 1: Freshman...
Guy 2: HAHAHAHA!!! I'm part of the upperclassmen!!! Fuck outta here dude!!! Go home!!!

Upperclassmen are the juniors and seniors in high school or a 4-year college. Freshmen are often intimidated by them, due to the upperclassmen being older than them and knowing everything more than they do.

Sophomores are still in the underclassmen ranks, but appear to be more respected than the freshmen. Usually when school is out for the summer, the sophomores are excited to become upperclassmen (aka: juniors) the following year. The juniors are excited to become seniors, and the freshmen are worrying about what will happen to them when they become sophomores.
Here's a story...

Sophomore 1: Hey, school is out! And in 3 more months, we will be upperclassmen! Also known as juniors!

Sophmore 2: Ikr! It's gonna be so cool! We can be twice as cool like the seniors!

3 months later...

Junior 1: Yes! We are officially juniors! Lets go scare some freshmen, shall we?

Junior 2: Hell yeah!

After the prank...

Freshman 1: Why do upperclassmen have to be so mean?

Freshman 2: Probably, because they think that they know everything more than we do
