Middle school is period of education normally ranging from grades 6-8, however some school districts have changed that standard to grades 7-8 or rarely even grades 5-8. This is a period in which academically, the work load and required effort raises tremendously. Although in elementary school, many students simply had 1 or at most 2 hours of homework nightly, this is changed to up to five hours nightly. Lockers are introduced, too. These are storage units meant to decrease the weight on our backs and have a generally good purpose, they actually just make us late for class and sweaty as they make us walk everywhere across campus just to get a binder or a composition book for class. The enviroment also greatly changes socially. Some of your old friends just completely ignore you as they feel you are "uncool". People have boyfriends that they "love" after 3 days and never keep for more than a week. Girls just want to say "I have a boyfriend" and the boys just want to get some. However, if you wear what you like, keep true to yourself stick with your old friends and maybe make a new one, keep away from dating, don't lose your virginity, and don't do any pot, middle school can be a bittersweet experience that you will think of fondly later as many socially intelligent people do. Middle school was great for me.
Usually after graduating from fifth grade, a newly appointed middle schooler can either have a mostly great experience or a terrible hell hole depending on if they become socially "cool" or just be cool and have fun with their friends.

Middle school is cool.

A typical middle school conversation:
Boy 1: Hey, do you have a girlfriend?
Boy 2: Nah, just broke up with (old girlfriend)
Boy 1: Hey look at (girl with big boobs). She is HOT!
Boy 2: Yeah, I'm gonna see if she'll wanna do me later.
Boy 3: You guys are pervs.

Boy 2: Hey, I saw you earlier.
Girl with big boobs: Yeah, I like, saw you.
Boy 2: You wanna make out?
Girl: Sure, why not?
That was a no joke conversation I spotted at school. That is an example of what not to be.

1. A place where your parents drop you off to be ripped apart by your equals.
2. Where you go from being a sweet, cute, elementry school kid to being a poser goth cutter listening to Avril Lavinge.
3. Where your hopes and dreams are shattered just in time for the next pit of hell: highschool.

In my opinion, the 2 (or 3) worst years of life you will have attending school.
The teachers are there to teach you crap you will most likely never use more than 50% of it in life. They're there to give you 3 hours of homework per night, and give you 2 nights of detention a week for doing something harmless.
The popular kids like the same bands, usually wear the same clothes, and are there to make you feel like absolute shit.
Mostly, your friends will talk behind your back, unless you're lucky to find one good, trust-worthy friend who won't dump you.
The girls are sluts, the boys are perverts, and most of the time you'll feel alone and blue. Relationships usually don't last more than a week or two.
Everyone and their dog has a Myspace, which are usually full of pictures of the popular kids and their friends, having a good time, making you feel more and more like shit.
Basically, everything makes you feel like shit.
6th graders always anticipate joining Middle School, but near the middle of 7th grade, you're screaming "GET ME OUT OF THIS PLACE!"
Drama is around every corner.
Middle School sucks.
Tommy: "Did you hear about Sally?"
Jimmy: "No, what happened to her?"
Tommy: "She killed herself."
Jimmy: "Woah! Why?"
Tommy: "Middle School bites, man."

Deepest pit in hell, a place where despair and agony dont just describe your energy bar, but describe your life. Joy is granted to seldom, but you come out a stronger human being.
All the shit

7th and 8th grade. Fucking shitpile run by crackwhore teachers.
Look at all those middle school boys. They need to get laid.

a shitwhole where everyone either thinks they are the best thing since sliced bread or become suicidal. supposedly everyone is "equal", but in their head everyone is thinking they are better than everyone else. friendships are shallow, limited only to the people in your classes or cliques. everyone in the fucking building has stress and anxiety issues....yet they still think they are different.
teacher: so who in this room has ever thought they have ADD but werent sure?
(everyone slowly raises hand)
teacher: dont worry, thats a common thought for middle-schoolers
i went to a shrink when i was in middle school...so did all my friends.
