What is the difference between Junior High School and Middle School?
The difference between Junior High School and Middle School is teaming. In a Junior High School, there are no teams. Departments, i.e. the math department, deliver math instruction to all students who take math. In a middle school or teaming approach approximately 120 students are placed on a team with 4-5 teachers who get to know their students very well. These 4-5 teachers deliver all the instruction to their 120 or so students. The middle school is modeled after Oxford and other great universities which have smaller colleges within the large university. So, a middle school has small teams within the larger school.
