Am I short? Tall? Or Average?

I've been 5'5" since the age of 12 and haven't grown since. Growing up I'd always been the tallest in my grade and have often thought of myself as tall, but now that I'm in high school everyone is literally taller than me. I'm definitely done growing and everytime I look in the mirror Im more convinced that I'm gonna be a short adult. I know this varies on the person, because I've heard that 5'5" is on the tall side of short and on the short side of tall... which I guess is average. But what do y'all think?

  • A little less than average, I'd think. Technically you're 1'' above average but this is just my opinion

  • It is the average height, but you never know you might end up growing an inch or two and even if not in the U. S. That's one inch taller than the average so don't worry ;)

  • In America the average height for a woman is 5'4. So you're pretty much average. Neither short nor tall.
