Throughout the film, it is clear that the characters, while all attending the same high school, are in different grades. Based on the internal evidence given in the movie, this is where they fall:

-Stacey is in 9th grade. At the beginning of the film one of her coworkers states that she has not started high school yet, and she does in the scenes that follow (high school in America typically starts at 9th grade.)

-Brad and his girlfriend are seniors, or in 12th grade. Both make explicit references to this being their last year of school.

-Linda is also in 12th grade, she makes references to her forthcoming graduating and her boyfriend being unable to attend.

-Spicoli is very popular around school, but also explicitly states when Mr. Hand comes over to his house that "next year" he will be avoiding Mr. Hand's room, implying that he has another year to go. Due to his popularity around the school and his reputation, he is most likely a junior, or in 11th grade.
