Posted by 13 year old, 8th grader me: I didn't really hate middle school until just this year (thanks to this stupid bitch in my class). After doing some research (most of it on Yahoo!Answers XD) some people say high school is better, but others say it's even worse than middle school. So, which has been better for you?

Edit on January 19, 2014: Since I am now a junior in high school, I feel I can say. Yeah high school is much better.

    I don't really know how this got over a thousand foots. Since this was posted three years ago, you must be a junior now so I won't bother explaining why.

    In high school they mixed the grades up so as a senior taking classes with freshmen is an huge insult.

    Middle school is horrible!!!! I'd rather be tied to a cactus and eaten by buzzards then go there every day. I'm in 7th grade and so far, sixth grade was wayyyyyyyy to much work and 7th grade is just so stupid and boring. All of the teachers here are either mean or just annoying (with the exception of a few). Also, pretty much everybody is a douchebag too

    High school is way better (for me personally). Everyone is so much cooler about things and there isn't a bunch of middle school drama. Also teachers don't teach you boring stuff and treat you like kids. Most of my classes are really interesting and keep me thinking. I find that there is way less homework (especially with my study hall) and all of the grade levels interact. There's also so many after school activities and it's perfect with the extra time on your hands. I love high school.

    I cried on the last day of middle school. I'm gonna miss everyone, seeing them everyday having only one class together, it was like family. I don't know what highschool is like until upcoming September, but I imagine I'm going to like middle school better IMO.

    Middle School sucks!!! I'm in the eighth grade and my middle school is fifth through eighth grade.All I can say is fifth grade was okay, sixth was fun, seventh was the bomb, and eighth grade is terrible!! In sixth grade I had tons of friends and we always did stuff and same in seventh...but it seems like in the eighth everything changed there is always some kind of drama every day. It just about kills me!! I hope high school gets better and I hope there some major party's!!! I hope all the drama gets less and less, but I'm not there yet!!!

    Let me just say my middle school SUCKS! (My middle school is grade7-grade9) It's horrible! It's filled with a bunch of rich bitches and douchebags. The younger kids are annoying as hell.

    Now I'm going to a highschool (grades 10-12) and it's HUGE. Lot's of stuff but one of the things I worry about is the kids there. Like it's a fight between what is better: Highschool or Middleschool. I've seen a bunch of middle school is better stuff but a lot of people seem to say highschool is much better. Even my step sister said so.

    I guess I'll give it a try. It's the school too right? Like I could hate my highschool.

    High school is such an effort. I go to a private school and am in A science and maths and it is so much work. I wish i could go back to middle school where i could get home, do some homework and then swim or play xbox

    Middle school, and here's why
    I don't know. I do like being around older people and it's even better at my school because it's secondary so I like being able to say I'm older than so many people in my school. But High School is so stressful. So much homework. Math is a nightmare. Plus, you can't fail a semester or you have to retake the class. I was not aware of this until sometime after I failed the first semester of math last year when I was a freshman. Not to mention, 8th grade was an awesome year for me although I gotta admit, 7th grade was the worst school year I ever had. But 8th grade, I had American Studies, Earth Science, Com Tech Pep, and I got to know lots of cool people. Drama honestly isn't a problem for me. It wasn't in middle school and it's not in high school. The social aspect of high school is better kinda. But I still prefer middle school. Classes are more fun, you're (usually) not thinking about your future yet, only one semester matters. But honestly, I prefer Elementary to both. I know it sounds crazy. But it was so easy. Life in general was so much easier when I was a kid. I was a star student in Elementary. Now I can barely maintain a C-. Sure the social aspect definitely wasn't as good. But we were all kids. It didn't matter too much.

    highschool sucks... so much drama, and the teachers are just so rude.. im having a REALLY hard time in highschool and im a freshman this year. middle school was so much better for me because i knew everybody and i barely got any homework. in high school they really dont care as much as they did in middle school. i wish i was still in 8th grade :(
  • coupons... Monica ... 2012/09/24 03:17:07
    the feeling is mutual. in 8th grade though i felt like all i wanted to do was get out of middle skool cause id been there so long, but now high skool is a f***ing nightmare and all i want to do is go back to 8th grade, with all my old friends and good times....yup high skool sucks. im a freshman too and the teachers just keep piling on the homework, and don't care about you like they did in middle skool. life is tough, but be strong and you'll find your place soon enough

    In high school, you don't have to deal with younger kids like 6th graders or in my middle schools case 5th graders, so you don't have to watch what you say or anything. Also, in high school you are treated more like an adult.

    In middle school, I was with the same people for like 8 years, and they were all the same race as me. In high school I'll only be with them for 4 years, and theres more diversity.And also more choices and freedom.

    Secondary school*
    I'm smarter in secondary school than I was in primary. We have more choice and freedom, also.
  • ApplePa... Elmo~WA... 2014/01/13 00:55:22
    Primary school stops at the equivalent to the fifth grade, and then from there it's secondary school. So perhaps secondary school is not the best term to use here, because secondary includes both high school and middle school.
  • Elmo~WA... ApplePa... 2014/03/17 05:40:59
    I think I'd still say High School (Or Post-14 as we call it here)

    It was difficult work, and gave me something to focus on rather than constantly causing trouble, because I took so many Science subjects I went on field trips at least once a month and did practical sessions every week which I loved and never got to do in Middle school, the teacher's treat you less like children and give you a bit more respect and freedom. I could go on and on and on.
