    "I only put it in the top 50% because, gosh darn it, our high schools are reeeeally good in this county and state. And we had some work to do, still. By that, I mean that I was bored out of my skull for most of middle school. Seventh grade was a good time, but sixth was a repeat of elementary school, and eighth was just dull. So I can't really judge the academics based on my challenging courses in high school. But for a middle school, it was great academics with great quality."

    "Yeah, there were some bad things. Yeah, there were bad people and bad teachers and bad experiences. And to be blunt, I've forgotten basically everything I learned in middle school. But I had my first taste of high school-level classes. I had positive teachers and a close-knit group of friends. I found what I loved and stuck with it. I discovered the joys of the drama department and the terrors of sex-ed. I was successfully prepared for one of the best high schools in the nation, and am preparing to hopefully enter one of the best universities in the nation. If you have to choose between this middle school and other middle schools in the area, go to this one. Shady Grove is a good school."

    "Like I said, I was bullied a lot, which didn't really make the social scene very appealing to me. I got mostly bullied for my religion and the fact that...well, that I'm smart, which wasn't very high on the acceptance end. I don't recall any racial tensions, although we could start to see a divide between the races then. Now, as I progress through high school, I have four African-American classmates in my AP classes. Still, there wasn't really any animosity there."

    "Overall, I loved the teachers themselves. I was bored out of my mind for a lot of middle school, especially eighth grade, but the teachers were nice and tried to make things interesting. In fact, there were only three exceptions that I could think of - an English teacher in seventh grade who constantly gave really nitpicky quizzes that most people tended to fail, and a science teacher in eighth grade who was just sour to everyone and enjoyed giving very intense projects with either short deadlines or due dates right after a holiday break, forcing us to spend the entire break working on them. The third was the band and later chorus teacher, who we felt poorly replaced the previous chorus teacher, Mr. Bowden, and seemed to just hate children. We feared his wrath; let's just leave it at that. Except for the exceptions, I did feel as if my teachers cared about me, and I liked our brand-new principle, Mr. Owusu. He came in the same year I did, I think, and was able to quickly and readily turn the school around. Our achievements soared and we became a hugely successful school. There was another teacher I was going to talk about who went on a vacation to Macchu Picchu and never came back, but as far as I know, she was given psychiatric leave and let go at the end of the year. I only met her once, so she doesn't really count. Her long-term substitute was amazing, though! I think you can tell from these stories that middle school was a very unusual experience. Then again, isn't it for most people?"
