Why was there no junior year in K-On?

I feel like I'm the only one who noticed that in this anime Ritsu, Mio, and Yui seemingly skipped their third year of high school. Azusa and Ui skipped sophomore year, too. Is there some explanation for this?

    There is no junior year.  The education system in Japan is different from the US.  There they have six years of elementary, three years of middle school and three years of high school.  Unlike here where it's five for elementary and four for high. This is most often the case in anime too since they're usually set in Japan.
