It really depends on the school you went to. I went to two elementary schools and two middles schools cuz i moved twice. I'm in high school now. I loved both my elementary schools. I hated the second middle school cuz it wasnt as free as the first one. We had uniforms and we had to walk in a line whenever we left the class and we all had the same classes with the same people all day like in elementary. Between classes, we had to walk in a line with our class to the next classroom. Locker breaks were only before and after school. We had restroom breaks. It was like elementary all over again. But at the first middle school, it was like high school, we all had our own schedules and we could go to lockers when we wanted(well during any transfer between classes i mean). No uniforms. Of course high school is the best. The most freedom. Of course there's drama but its a small price to pay for freedom. Freedom is way better than just dealing with drama and all that emotional crap. I would rather be able to do what i want and have my heart broken than feel like I'm in jail and have happy relationship with all my friends and bfs :P
But really if I would have been able to stay at that first middle school I went to, then I would have nothing to complain about with middle school. That was the best middle school ever. I wouldnt be able to choose, then because I liked elementary and I LOVE high school, too.
