Secondary is middle school. High school is grades 9-12. Then you go to university/college.
I have that same problem. I'm going to a new school, and all my old friends (with the exception of two, but one is entering the teen years and she had a bit of a personality shift) either have moved away or are not my friends anymore. I have three friends in my new school, but one of them hardly ever talks to me in school, and when I do something that I see other girls do to her, and I do to her at my house with no complaints (for example, steal her hat), she gets mad at me. Another friend I argue with somewhat often, and while it doesn't ever leave a permanent mark on our friendship, I want it to stop. All three of my friends have other friends, and are almost always with them, with or without me. I try to make more friends, but even the girls that the teachers tell me that I would like (Me: None of my friends are here. I'm lonely. Teacher: You have friends. Person A, Person B, Person C... Me: Who's Person C? Teacher: You don't know Person C?), and that my friends tell me are really nice, don't ever talk to me unless it seems really to eat lunch with them, but my first one didn't do that. I actually liked my first one better than my second one, who is kind of awkward because we don't like any of the same things. One time, all the elementary schoolers got to sit wherever they want, but I had to sit alone. My father says I'm to shy (the only reason I'm shy is becuase nobody talks to me anyway), and that I shold inject myself into a conversation. I try to do this, but when I do whomever I'm talking to ignores me. I don't know why I'm so unpopular at my new school, becuase even when I just commented on this middle schooler's viola she liked me. my grandmother used to be a teacher, and when I tell her what's going on, she says to tell a teacher. I then tell her I did tell the teacher, but they didn't do anything. Then she tells me that makes her really sad and that the teachers shouldn't do that. My father tells me that it might be becuase I used to freak out over everything at the beginning of the year, but now all I do is( if I do anything) is stare at whomever is annoying me until they get scared. I seem to easily make friends with kids that are younger or older than me, but not with people the same age. I don't want any "They're not good enough for you," or "Get other friends, it's not worth it," stuff, because right now any girl that isn't a criminal or is hated by all for her meaness is okay. I can't seem to make anymore friends.
