    Stick in middle school

    What does 'stick' exactly mean in the following sentence?
    Who wants to see a movie about a kid who's stuck in middle school with a bunch of morons?

    I looked it up here:
    http://www.learnersdictionary.com/definition/stick%20
    but I couldn't find suitable definitions.

    Is 'stick' a slang word? Is 'moron' a slang word?
    If I were a native speaker of English, I would never shut up. :-)

    I think definition#2 below fits your sentence, but I am not a teacher.

    Re: Stick in middle school

    "Stuck" means in a position that one cannot get out of. "Moron" is not slang. It means a stupid person.
