Middle school and junior high school are levels of schooling that act as a sort of bridge between elementary and high schools. Most school systems use one term or the other, not both; furthermore, the terms are not usually interchangeable. In Chinese culture, especially China, Taiwan and Hong Kong ("中学"), plus Vietnam ("Trung học"), middle school is a synonym for secondary school. Secondary school is a term used to describe an educational institution where the final stage of schooling, known as secondary education and usually compulsory up to a specified age, takes place. It follows elementary or primary education, and may be followed by university (tertiary) education. There are many different types of secondary school, and the terminology used varies around the world (Wikipedia). An international version of the British middle school curriculum is the International Middle Years Curriculum.
In Thailand, lower secondary education comprises Matayom 1-3 equal to grades 7-9.
