A class is a group of students that are taught together in school. A class can be defined by, either sharing a teacher (e.g. Mr. Smith's Class), sharing a classroom (e.g. Class 2-C), or simply attending the same school in the same age group in a school year (e.g. The Class of '69). Students who are in the same class are called classmates.
