What Is the Average Height Range for a 10-Year-Old Girl?

The average height for a 10-year-old girl is between 50 and 59 inches tall. When measuring the growth of children before and during puberty, it can be expected that there will be a good bit of variation between the sizes of individual children, depending on where they are in their physical development and their genetic makeup.

During the years leading up to puberty, healthy children will grow an average of 2.5 inches per year. For girls, this pattern will continue until the beginning of menstruation, at which point growth will slow to about 1 or 2 more inches before stopping entirely, ending at the height that will remain for the duration of the adult life.
