What Is The Average Height And Weight Of An 11 Year Old Boy?

It is the nature of parents to fret about their children's health, and whether they are "average” when compared to other children. For example, the average 11-year-old boy is 52 inches tall and weighs 77 pounds.

But so what? What do we do with this information?

If we're smart, it's just the starting point. Our children have grown in fits and spurts their entire lives. That 11-year-old boy was about 29 inches tall and 22 pounds when he hit his first birthday. Over that first year, he gained about 8 ounces and half an inch a month, so his weight tripled! Obviously that can't happen every year.

Still, children do have growth spurts. They gain weight rapidly. They also might lose weight rapidly. They grow inches, seemingly overnight. None of this is cause for concern.

That average one-year-old will grow about another two inches each year before ages two and three, but then the leaps begin: Four more inches by age four to reach 37 inches, leveling off at around two inches each year until another four-inch spurt as he's turning nine, then another three inches to get him to his 11-year-old height. After that, watch out! In the next year he might zoom up anywhere from six to 10 inches and still be considered "average.”

Pediatricians tend to rely more on percentiles of growth. If our 11-year-old is taller than half the boys his age and shorter than the others, he would be at the 50th percentile marker.

Rarely do percentiles alone give cause for concern, although the extremes are an exception. A child in the 5th percentile might be watched for malnutrition or disease, while one in the 95th percentile might be observed for obesity.

These averages are more useful for tracking trends. A child who is shorter than average but remains so throughout his development might not be average on the chart … but he might be just right for him.

I'm in a grade 5 - 6 split class. I am the tallest in my class. I'm 5 foot 4 and I'm 116 pounds, I'm skinny and athletic. The shortest in my class is in grade 5 and he is 4 foot 7 and is 89 pounds. I'm in grade 6, is that a healthy weight and height for my age? (I'm 11)
Average for 10-11 yr old boys:
Weight: 90 - 115 lbs
Height: 4 foot 9 - 5 foot 4

My 12 year old son is 137cm tall - just under 4' 6"

He is small for his age,  but is still within the normal range and fine and healthy  -  nothing to worry about.

You guys are either midgits, or obese tall people. I am an 11 year old and the average height should be about 4"8 to 5"2. I am pretty small for a 11 year old (4"6?). Looking at people in my class, people 5"5 are pretty big in my opinion. Maybe its because my school is short?

I am 11 and I am 5'6, weighing 70 pounds and the tallest (and possibly the skinniest) person in my class. People make fun of me calling me twig or lanky. Am I normal?

L am  5'5'' about 110pounds, a 11 year old boy and quite muscular. I think that 5'4'' 116lbs is a lil' wierd since you say that you are skinny, even I ain't skinny and I weigh less and I'm taller, but I guess it depends on body frame and how much of it that is muscles xD

Height is genetically inherited. The growth of large bone tells about height. The large bones continue to grow until puberty. There is international scale for age, weight and height for boys and girls. You have not mentioned the weight of your son. Anyhow, at the age of 11 years, he should weigh about 35.30 kg and his height should be 4" and 8.5' or 143.4 cm.

My 11 year old boy is 65 Pd's. And very thin. He does not eat well and never touches vegetables but does take a vitamin everyday. I am concerned about his weight and have been for a long time now. I would like to know if maybe it is parasites and if that may be so then how do you get rid of that naturally?

Anthelmintics, medicine to kill intestinal parasites, are toxic and can cause intestine and liver damage. Children follow the metabolism of a parent or grandparent. My friend worries about her son's thin stature compared to my son. She didn't look at that her husband is tall and thin and my husband is tall and heavily muscled. Her son likes hiking but not vegies same as they didn't as kids. My son hates hiking and likes vegies same as we did as kids. But we grew up fine and so will they.

The average 10 to 11 year old boy would be 4 ft 7 to 5 ft 2, I know this, because I'm in a class with 10 and 11 year old people. I'm 4 ft 6 so I'm one inch below average.

Although the chart is helpful for men and women it does not show a height and weight chart for children. Thanks though!

Everybody so quick to tell us more and more children are obese but nobody gives you any clues to approximately how tall and what weight the child should be . My son was weighed and measured in school and all you got was the two figures not whether it was in the normal realms. What's the point if nobody shares information Dee

My son is going frantic about being weighed at school next week. He is worried that he is underweight, He is 4'9" and weighs 59lbs. He is very active and plays sports a lot and has a very small frame, He also eats incredibly well. Should we be worried?

Umm... Well I'm an eleven year old girl and I'm pretty tall for my age. I'm 5 feet and 3 inches. Don't worry I'm taller then most boys in my class.  The average height for a boy in my class is probably like 4 feet and 9 inches to about 5 feet.
