    Smile Bus No.1 or No.1 Bus

    Hi, there.
    Which one is right, Bus No.1 or No.1 Bus? Or both are right?
    And can I call a junior high school a middle school?

    Cindy,


    I wish to share some cultural information with you.

    (1) Many years ago, children attended elementary

    school (grades 1 - 8). High school was grades 9 - 12.

    (2) Then some sensitive and kind people in authority

    decided that seventh and eighth graders were too



    mature to be mixed in with first to sixth graders, and

    that ninth graders were too immature to share the

    same environment with tenth to twelfth graders.

    Thus was created the junior high school (grades 7 - 9).

    Then about 20 years ago, some sensitive and kind

    people decided that sixth graders were too mature to be

    mixed in with first to fifth graders, and that ninth graders

    were, yes, mature enough for high school.

    Thus was created the middle school of today (grades 6 - 8).

    Don't be surprised if the people in authority come up with yet

    another change.

    Re: Bus No.1 or No.1 Bus

    My elementary school was K-6, my junior high was 7&8, and my high school was 9-12.

    My children's elementary school was K-6, their middle school is 6-8, and their high school is 9-12.

    I refer to their middle school sometimes as "junior high" and no one bats an eye.

    Shifting populations will affect things. In my current district, before they built a second high school, they used a smaller building as the "9th grade academy" because there were too many to fit in the high school.
    I'm not a teacher, but I write for a living. Please don't ask me about 2nd conditionals, but I'm a safe bet for what reads well in (American) English.
