What is eighth grade like?

Eighth grade is usually the last year of middle school or junior high school, so the teachers are trying to prepare their students for high school. Get ready to be loaded down with schoolwork. Make sure you turn in your assignments on time, because your teachers will be merciless. (They're only trying to prepare you for high school). Eighth graders are the big kids of middle school/junior high school, but don't get too used to it, because next year in high school you'll be a "little kid" again. Every school is different though, just ask some former eighth graders of your school what it was like.
