For most humans puberty is the end of their growing tall. For girls, this is normally around 16/17 boys 17/18. It is possible to still grow after this time, but overall humans have met the majority of thier growth after puberty.

the age that humans stop growing at depends on many factors, like the genes you inherit from your parents, the age you enter puberty, the age you experience your first period, and your general health. most females stop growing at around age 16. most males stop growing at around around 18 years old.

Humans normally stop growing between the ages of eighteen and twenty. Body tissue regenerates to the same or similar size for life, however.

I suppose most people stop growing after they finish their pubescence. But of course this depends mostly on hormones and when you have problems, it might stop later.
