tercer año de enseñanza media


Explanation:
"Estoy ahora en tercer año de enseñanza media".

It refers to the third year of high-school, when you're a "junior". "Enseñanza media" is the way high-school is called in some countries.

Ahora estoy en el onceavo grado de mis estudios.


Explanation:
I suggest adding the "de mis estudios" because the educational system in the Hispanic world varies from one country to the next. In other words, adding "de mis estudios" would further clarify what you mean by saying "estoy en el onceavo grado," -- that is, you're in the eleventh "grade of study" or
"your studies." (We tend not to say either of these in English).

Depending on to whom, or where, you're speaking you might be asked "el onceavo de que?" -- "The eleventh grade of what?" This is because, like I said, the phrase "eleventh grade" isn't proper to most varieties of Spanish spoken around the world. and it's generally a foreign concept in the Hispanic world.

In short, what you would say all depends on what country you're in. The most likely phrase you would want to use is the commonly used "Ahora estoy en mi tercer ano de colegio." Most Spanish speakers would understand that you mean "high school" when you use the term "colegio." You would then have to go one to say that you attend a four year high school. Again, the high schools differ from one country to the next.
