In the US, as of the aughts, middle school is the grade levels 6, 7, and 8. Following the unbridled innocence of elementary school, and predating the jaded contentedness of high school, junior high makes for an awkward middle stage in the development of an adolescent. Many people are just starting to experience hormonal changes and out of their ignorance do not understand what is going on inside them, so they attach their feelings of crumminess and despair to anything from their hair to their shoes to imagined feuds with their teachers. Once teens settle into these changes, they should see that these dilemmas were trivial. This does not explain why so many adults view this period as "Hell itself" in retrospect.
I can't believe my seventh grade science teacher had the audacity to call middle school the worst time of her life! Though that would explain a lot...
