Ugh. Middle school. Stinky boys. Rude girls. Mean teachers. Boring homework assignments. Bad cafeteria food. Puberty.



Oh, wait, that's high school.

I'm not qualified to answer-I'm still in middle school, so I don't know anything about high school.

I voted that both were awful, but I'd say that high school was slightly more awful than middle school was. The food was definitely crap in both. Maybe it was just the schools I went to, but it seemed like there were a lot more rude people and a-holes in high school than middle school.

From my limited experience, I voted middle school because people in middle school are often less accepting, more immature, more cliquey and bigger jerks

What's middle school and what's high school? I know the basic premise, but the rest..........

Overgeneralization! Stereotype! Most , not all middle schoolers are immature, cliquey, and jerks, not all of us. I'm the only VB middle schooler whom I know, so I have to represent middle school. Just because most of us don't shower and still laugh at toilet humor doesn't mean we are all that way!

I'm not sure, since I grew up in a country that had primary and secondary/high school. There was no middle ground. High school was basically middle and high combined. But high school was GREAT!

I voted High School.



I was absolutely miserable and everyone knew it. Hated, hated, hated it. And ofcourse I got a horribly low GPA, as well. *sigh* The whole "high school experience" didn't start looking up for me until the last couple of semesters of my Senior year.

Middle School was a hard time for me. There was my anorexia issues ((which I am over...thank gosh)) Problems with my peers. Overall unhappyness. It was the worst time of my life.



I am much happier now in high school. I have my crowd of friends, real friends. I discovered the real me over the summer. I find high school a lot of fun. Its just a better time for me.

Let's see our local schools, MIddle School- last week 2 bomb threats, 3-Sheriff Visits, High School -Sheriff Dept Assigned daily, and almost daily fires started inthe boys room.....It's a toss up, but I understand the last teacher sent to the hospital was High School from a 3 time violent offender, so I'll say high school.



Did I mention none of this was on the news, I just know because I am the local contact for the Home School. hmmm....

High school sucked big time, but never was I so insecure and unhappy than I was in middle school. By the time I reached high school, I had found people I could actually get along with, and I'd stopped trying to "be popular." (ugh--what was I thinking?!)

For me high school was better. Junior high is smaller and everybody knows everything about everybody. At my high school there were over 3,000 students, so there everybody was pretty much doing their own thing. In junior high you know you have at least 3 years left...at the least. In high school, it's like "Yes! I'm almost done!". I go to a little community college with not even 600 students altogether... it is soooo much better.

I met my fiance' in high school...that's another big reason I liked high school better.

Junior High (Middle School): Kids' anxiety over their bodily changes and self-consciousness about their not-a-child, not-a-true-teenager status causes them to direct incredibly hateful, vengeful behavior outward. Their desparate struggle to appear more mature causes a preoccupation with demeaning others in a sexual way. Inexplicably, classmates become "gay" or "whores" or a multitude of other sexually-based names for the most minor of slip-ups, like wearing the "wrong" outfit or sitting at the wrong seat at lunch. (Literally, at my jr. hi. there was a seat that was the designated as the "gay seat". No one sat there.) Because everyone is terrified of being the next target, everyones' eyes are on everyone else. You are constantly under the microscope, and the slightest deviation from pre-determined "coolness" will be all over the school by the end of the day.



High School: Everyone is still staring each other, but teens break off into factions and cliques, because there is strength in numbers. Access to things like cars, new friends, and parties take a little bit of the edge off the microscope. However, woe to the person who doesn't fit into any of their high school's cliques. When you don't fit in with any common group (cool kids, skaters, goths, stoners etc.) you will often end up very lonely. The lonliness and low self-esteem is damaging in a different, and probably more long-lasting way, than middle school's nonsensical name-calling.

slops, gloops, and gruels.

both were awful, but middle school definitely sucked more.

I was in orchestra.

In all the nerdy classes.

I got mono 3 times.

I gained about 20 pounds due to puberty.

I wrote a love-note to a guy I was madly in love with, and it got passed around the whole school (he was one of the hot guys and I was a total nerd, so yeah, that was fun).

My english teacher got arrested for being a childporn ringleader (and committed suicide shortly thereafter).



sigh.



High school wasnt' a whole lot better, but at least in my sr. year I stopped hanging out with my self-righteous religious friends and started hanging out with the BBS-ing headbangers. (of course, my religious friends thought i was going straight to hell in a handbasket... maybe I still am... but at least i'm having a lot more fun along the way )

I think they were both terrible. I don't think I could pick one over the other. I was a bit of an introvert and had maybe one or two friends in middle school, and only one good friend in high school. Adults always told me to enjoy it while I could, because once I was in the "real world", then I would miss it, but that is definitely not the case. I am so glad it's over.

Well, seeing as I have never been in highschool because of homeschooling, I voted middle school. Worst experience of my life.

"Middle school" was the worst. Most people in my old school were quite . I used to fantisise about burning it down *he,he,he* (I never actually did it).



High school (college) is better because I don't have to wear a uniform and most students and staff are ok.

AH! They both were a nightmare.



The people were more annoying in HS, but the rules were stricter in MS.

middle schoo was by far worse. went to the public school and transferred to a tiny private one the next year. both sucked in their own ways.



the age of 13 for me was so freakin awkward. i look at pictures and oh, oh ! i laugh.



we should post embarrasing pictures. hahha.



so middle school - zero fun. i don't think i said more than 2 words in those three years other than when i got in a fist fight with some stupid beeatch.



high school - better but not awsome. there were only 45 people in my class and no boys to fret about, at least.

I voted middle school as the worst because there were fewer people and only two grades. In high school there is a lot more blending between grades and there are more people, so there's a little more diversity. Since it was more diverse, I was able to find more people who were actually worth having as friends.



I definitely don't miss either one though.
