    For guys, I'm 17, 6'4, and still growing. I'd say 18-22 to be the average age.

    Re: what age will a human stop growing in height?

    I noticed when I went to my 10-year high school reunion that almost all of the guys were way, way taller than they were when we graduated. Most of us were 18 when we graduated. I saw them again at the age of 28. Yeah, they were much taller. So I'd say that at least guys keep growing after 18, for sure. I was really shocked at the difference in their height from the last time I saw them, I mean it was something I really, really noticed!!
