How to show an individual student data point within a year level (violin or box plot)

Hi All, I have a bunch of reports to author with the common theme to show how a particulr student has performed within a year level within a learning domain. I further need to show the progression over a number of years. The page filter is selected to a specific student, each violin/box plot needs to represent the yearlevel data points for that year for a given domain. I can manage the data side but have had not been able to locate any visuals that in any way can accomodate my need.

I cannot imagine that I would be the first to try and do this, however I have not been succesful in identifying any visuals that allow me to visually combine the aggregation with a specific data point.

The ask seems very reasonable: I need to be able to highlight where on the box/whiskers or violin the student sits. All suggestion would be greatly welcomed. I am stuck at the moment and short of maybe trying to do this in Python ...?

Hope to hear soon & thank you for reading.
