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.
