First you take a tennis ball and try to learn to dunk with a small ball like that. It helps with ball control. Once you are good with that, take a bigger ball and work your way up to a regular size basketball.

In order to increase your vertical, you should focus on plyometric type of exercises for vertical leap. Do these type of exercises for one summer and you will get 10-20cm on your vertical easy at that age.

320cm is a good height to be at! The reason that you are failing could be multiple things, you may need a few more inches on your vertical or your hand strength is too low. I remember when i felt like I was above the rim and still could not make the ball go down. You can improve your jumping technique, by doing this will increase your vertical by 2-6 inches. I can leave a link that will help with this https://basketballmentality.com/vertical-jump-technique/

You can also join a jump program too, these program focus on increasing your vertical, I know one that can increase your vertical by 9 inches easily. You will be slamming with this one in a few weeks. I can leave a link to a review i found so you can check it out. https://basketballmentality.com/vert-shock-review/ this program focus on body weights exercises so no need for a gym :)

Hope this helps and you are dunking very soon
