When is it called "middle school" in your state?

In AZ, middle school starts in 7th grade. In the south, it seems like 6th grade is typically what they're calling middle school. What is it in your state?

Everywhere I have gone it is 6th grade.  If you go to in 7th grade it is considered Junior high.  I can tell you from experience it is not fun having a taste of middle school and then moving to be "demoted"back to elementary school in 6th grade.

In my area, it's 6-8. There were other places in Ohio where it was different, though.

My kids are in a privare school in Louisiana and middle school is 6-8.  Not sure what the public schools do.
