In this study the author baa presented not only opinions of educators throughout the country, but also re­sults of research data compiled by those public school divisions in the State of Virginia that have experimented with this intermediate school theory and have reached validated conclusions . The author bas also tried to show that there is a major difference between the traditional junior high school organization and the intermediate school organization. The author has concluded by means of research that the term "intermediate" is used interchangeably with the term "middle" in references made to that period of intermediary instruction.

Any summary, conclusions, or recommendations; however, that were made by the author were primarily based upon an extensive study of the public intermediate and junior high schools within the State of Virginia
