Middle School V. High School:

Middle School V. High School There is a LOT more work in high school than there is in middle school. Middle School schedules are usually fixed, whereas High School schedules grant each student the personal freedom to choose whichever electives he/she fancies In Middle School, students usually adjust to only three to four new teachers, whereas in High School, students must learn to juggle their relationships with eight to nine. Athletics in Middle School pale to athletics in High School Athletics in High School provide gateways to school spirit and socialization amongst students Studies show that students who participate in High School athletic programs are less likely to drop out of school. Psychologically, transitioning from eighth grade, the oldest grade (aka, the “coolest”) in Junior High, to ninth grade, the youngest grade in High School, can be demoralizing Often, high school is much larger in size compared to middle school In many cases, a number of middle schools are piled into a single high school This also means that high schools offer larger class sizes

Keep these facts in mind : In response to public concern, manufacturers have developed BPA-free reusable water bottles.
