Arguably the worst three years of any child's schooling. You feel like you're too old to be treated like a young child but you're treated like one anyway. Some students test the limits, and as such the entire student body is restricted even more. You slowly loose your freedoms one by one until you feel like you might as well be in preschool for all the independence you have.

Also, it is close to guaranteed that in at least one of your middle school years, close to all of your friends will dump you. You know back in fifth grade when you and your BFF 4 LYFE swore you'd stay friends all the way through FOREVER? Yeah. That pretty much all goes to shit the second you hit middle school. People grow apart or become popular wannabes or just move on to different people. It sucks. You'll make new friends though. Usually.

Organization is a HUGE deal in Middle School. Teachers are all over you all the time, making sure you have every binder, paper, and book in place. It's obnoxoius and invasive. You'll get used to it.
Fifth Grade Girl: OMG! I can't wait to go to middle school! I'm going to be all grown up and do whatever I want and my friends and I will be popular and all the boys will want to date us.

8th Graders: (trying to contain hysterical laughter) Mmhmm. Sure. Whatever you say.

the school after elementary school and before high school. the purpose is learning new subjects, preparing for highschool, and trying out new things. what it really is is a shithole of drama and skanks that doesn't help anybody. oh, and the food sucks ass, too.
"i can't wait 'till highschool, man. middle school sucks!"

6th, 7th, and 8th grade. A low point in childhood. Guys are shorter than Girls, everyone looks and acts awkward.
6th graders: prepare for the worst 3 years of your life. Get used to cliques, drama, backstabbing, and total awkwardness.
7th graders: Sucks for you and your big ass pile of homework.
8th graders: Your the oldest, great! You really think you're the shit, don't you? You're not.
Populars: Make you feel like shit. They are prettier, richer, and skinnier than you. Travel in packs with their expensive phones and will take "adorable" photos of themselves laughing with their guy-friends in their tight jeans, UGGs, or booty shorts. Photos will later be posted on Facebook and aquire 50 likes from wannabes.
Jocks: Are the male counterpart of populars. Usually excel in baseball, basketball, and football. Tend to bully nerds. Also group up with the skateboarders and are usually in chorus. Always cocky.
Nerds: Will eat together. Some are borderline punks and goths who wear bright green skinny jeans and don't brush their teeth. Get A's, though.
Wannabes: Possibly the most annoying of the groups. Do things for "crazy hair day" in hopes of looking cute/getting attention. Girls actually dress in yoga pants on "National Yoga Pants" day and mimic whatever the populars do.
Normal People:
As long as you have real friends and steer clear of annoying people you may make it out unscathed. Nevermind, take it back. Nobody leaves Middle School unscathed.
8th Grader: "Hey, look at all those stupid sixth graders! Sucks for them, huh? We're so cool and mature because we're on top!"

7th Grader: "The eighth graders think their so cool now that their on top, and the sixth graders think their so cool their in middle school. Where do we fit in?"

6th Grader: "We deserve the best treatment because we're younger and smaller! At least we're no in elementary school anymore, though! We're so much older now!"

Teacher: "Stupid shits."

The fifth circle of hell. A grotesque wasteland where underqualified teachers and posers alike turn defenseless 12 year olds into vapid shells of their former selves--after about 3 years of this methodical torture these poor souls are to be shipped off to the ninth circle of hell, otherwise known as high school.
Dante: "And now we see the fifth circle of hell: note the messy black hair and Monster energy drinks."

seriously, middle school sucked

The three worst years of my life.
I still haven't found a single person who said Middle School didn't suck.

The only place in the world where you get tortured for being smart, average, or unique. The popular kids rule, even though they usually are mean & suckish
Like prison, but prison is safer.
Girl: Im taking art in middle school this year.
Boy: Thats lame, and totally uncool.
Girl: No, Im really good at art, its cool to me.
Boy: But im popular and i say its not, so there! 'points at Girl and laughs'
