GPA confusion

Hey, this is kind of a dumb question, but as an international student, the GPA system has me really confused. When referring to a GPA, does everyone mean your GPA from all four years of high school, or just your GPA for grade 12?

GPA can refer to just your grade 12, but when you're putting it into Common App or CollegeVine, they are referring to the cumulative GPA, so the GPA from all four years of high school.
