We also got a look at some of the Hawkins High cheerleaders, a stark reminder that all the “kids” are at least freshman in high school.
Season three took place in 1985, right after Mike, Will, Lucas, Dustin, and Max have all graduated from middle school.
The final scene of that season was set in October, so presumably after they (and Eleven?) had all started high school.
We don’t yet know what year “Stranger Things 4” takes place in, but it’s a sure bet that they’re all at least going to be freshman — if not sophomores. Thanks to filming delays, it’s possible that all the characters will have been forced to age more between seasons due to the real-life actors ages.
