Schooling that takes place between elementary and high school. Middle-schoolers begin to see where their interests lie, and form friendships that may last until the end of (or after) high school. These friendships may be formed by the emergence of 'cliques' (culturally-structured social groups), which become even more prominent in high school. While middle school amusement is generally fun and harmless, high schoolers like to write immature behavior off as characteristic of middle schoolers.
Middle school duration varies; mine lasted three years.
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...

The 3 years of shit you go through just to graduate and stand 4 more years of shit. The classes are boring, with exams up to the Wazoo. Lunch is the hamburgers from last week, but now they're disguising them as soup. If you're lucky and have recess, it only lasts 15 minutes, and all you do is stand there. Teachers give you an assload of homework and projects, and expect you to finish them in one night.
Your parents don't care if you're getting bullied, but once you get a bad grade they're on your ass about it. Don't worry, it'll all be over soon.
1. Teacher: Now class, your homework is pages 141-145, All problems. Oh, and you have a project due tomorrow.
2. Lunch today: Soupy Surprise
3. Kid: Mom, this kid at school is bullying me.
Mom: Just ignore him.
Mom: YOU GOT AN F?! YOU'RE GROUNDED FOR TWO WEEKS!
High schooler: Enjoying middle school?
Middle schooler: No.
High schooler: It'll be over soon enough.
The place where under-qualified teachers and coaches that never stop yelling transform you from a sweet innocent 5th grader to either a self-absorbed loud-mouthed jock or a perverted sarcastic freak of nature. They also set you into groups based on how smart you are and make you feel bad about yourself in some way. The only way anybody makes it through the pure torture that you get everyday is the awsome people that you meet and the freedom of extracurricular activities.
mother: billy, you've been making more and more bad choices since you started middle school.
billy: of course i have, middle school does that to you.
1. a place where poor kids are made fun of everyday
2. where kids have stupid relationships that last for 2 weeks
3. where kids are forced to go for 7 hours of the day
4. prep for high school
5. where most of the kids days are spent texting and spelling you like u
kiddo: i hate school
Mom: but it teaches you good value
kiddo:sureeee (kiddo thinks : i freaking hate middle school)
Worst 2/3/4 years of one's life.Almost all the 7th graders have already lost their virginity,and the ones who didn't are being made fun of.It's a huge hellhole where all your friends leave you for the popular kids,and you find yourself standing alone in a corner with chewing gum in your hair.
A typical 7th/8th grade middle school girl has already had at least 4 boyfriends,whom she claimed to be in love with.They all think they are mature and that they know everything about love and life.Boy,they are so wrong.The popular girls deal with ridiculous drama everyday.They always get into fights over boys.They kill you if they see you wearing the same skirt they wore two days ago,even though all of them wear the exact same style of clothing.Speaking of clothing,a middle school girl is often seen wearing VERY short skirts,slutty tops,stuffed bras and high heels.
From the innocent little boys who used to play with cars and dinosaurs,they now play with girls' boobs,smack girls on the ass,smoke crack,dress all 'gangsta' and 3/4 of their vocabulary consists of the terms 'a**,f***,sh**,n*gga'
Ooh,the teachers.In seventh grade,when puberty hits hard and all the drama begins,and so you don't have any more time to study,they get really mad at you for not getting the same results you got in 5th and 6th grade.
Elementary school kid:Yay!I'm going to middle school next year!I can't wait!I'll be all grown up and stuff!
Middle schooler:Riiiiiight.Try and tell me the same thing when you'll be my age
High schooler:Wait 'till you get to high school
The deepest pit of Hell between the amazing years of elementary and high school. You get stabbed in the back, spend most of your time alone and in tears and cutting. The work load is ridiculous and all the teachers are constantly pissed off. Teachers have no sympathy because "they're preparing you for high school". Yeah no! High school teachers have souls. Have fun in the worst 3 years of your life.
Middle schools sucks ass. I made it through alive but just barely. My "best friend" left me all alone and I spent my days in a teacher's room alone.
High Schooler: Oh, what grade are you in??
Middle Schooler: 7th :/
High Schooler: Ohhh I'm so sorry it sucks huh?
Middle Schooler: YES!! I want it to die :(
