Intermediate school

A term usually synonymous with junior high school or middle school, and therefore embracing any of a combination of grades between elementary school and high school. However, intermediate school is sometimes used in the narrow sense as a special school for emotionally troubled or other youngsters requiring too many special education and other services for a conventional school to provide. Such schools are usually established cooperatively by two or more nearby schools, whose boards create an “intermediate,” semiautonomous school district for the special school. (See also JUNIOR HIGH SCHOOL; MIDDLE SCHOOL.)
