The average weight for a sixth grade girl depends totally on her height, lifestyle and whether she has reached puberty or not.

Some charts will say that a healthy weight for a 12-14 year-old girl is between six and eight stones. A doctor or a health visitor will check the child’s BMI (Body Mass Index), as this can give a good and accurate indication as to whether she is a healthy weight. BMI for adults is calculated from your weight and height but for individuals aged 18 years and under, a doctor will take into account age, weight, height and sex.

Boys tend to weigh more than girls during puberty as boys increase
muscle mass, bone density and height. You will find BMI calculators online, and
they are extremely easy to use - simply enter the weight and height of the child
and hit enter and the number will appear. If the number is quite high and you
are concerned, it is advisable to speak with a doctor or health visitor as they
will assess the child more thoroughly. Their assessments will also take into
account family history - if obesity runs in your family then the chances are your
children will also have a weight problem, unless of course you tackle it early.

It is not advisable to put any child on a diet, but it is important for children at any age to have a good healthy diet with plenty of fruit and vegetables and a fair amount of exercise each day. If you inculcate this habit into your children at a young age, hopefully this will continue throughout adulthood.

Remember not to give your child a complex regarding their weight, so try to make subtle changes. This is also the case if you believe your child is underweight; again the BMI is an important indicator and a doctor or health visitor will help you with your diet and exercise regime.

Well I'm 11 going into 6th and I'm about 5"2, and I weigh exactly 110 lb. It just depends, it seems like even my friends semi smaller than me are sometimes my weight or even more, and I promise you, they're not fat. I've never heard of 5"2 girls weighing 70-95, so I'm going say thats sorta abnormal. If your like maybe shorter...I would think its perfectly normal. But it depends on the body shape as well. I have thick thighs, a small tummy, but I have been blessed with breasts that I can show off in a bikini. And I guess if you subtract and add all the weight, the average weight at my school would be 90-120

I'm a 12 year old 5ft 7 and a lot of these estamates are WRONG!!!!!!
It all depends on how TALL you are,family jeans meaning if your parents and grand-parents are large ,and yes muscle WIEGHS MORE THAN FAT.
I'm  a GIRL foot ball player,I'm very active and get my 90mins a day fitness BUT a am 150 but thats all because I have more muscle then fat! So you people who say 70-90 or whatever is WRONG if your strong chances are your 100-170 maybe more but kids our age shouldnt be worrying about how big we are!
Hopefully this helps :)

If you are going into grade 6 then you should be around 80-90 pounds. If you are less or more don't worry it will all even out soon. For some of the people who say 70 pounds you are absolutely wrong. That is the weight of a grade 3 child. If you are worrying about your weight try a new diet or try to exercise a little bit more. It'll help a lot. Hope my answer helped.

Don't think about "weight" as much as you think about "inches."  Because muscle weighs more than fat, a person who exercises a lot will weigh more than a person who spends all their time watching TV or playing video games.  But the person who exercises and weighs more will probably have a smaller body (i.e. Fit into smaller size clothing and be smaller when measured with a tape measure -- chest, waist, hips, thighs) than the other person.  Are you eating foods that are good for your body (vegetables, fruit, etc.), or are you eating junk (fast food, potato chips, candy, cookies, etc.)?  These issues are more important than what you weigh.  And the next time you go in for your annual check-up with your pediatrician, you can ask the doctor if he/she thinks you are an appropriate weight.

Well, it pretty much depends on how tall and athletic you are. If you are athletic, muscle weighs more than fat. I am in sixth grade, 4' 10'' and I absolutely love to do sports and I weigh around 80 pounds. If you are bigger though no worries because I am rather petite.

That will depend on your age and height. Normally a sixth grade girl ranges from 9 to 12 years of age. You need to see the weight chart for girls but in my opinion, 75 pounds is a reasonable weight.
