Rafe Khatchadorian (Griffin Gluck) has an epic imagination and a slight problem with authority, and these things collide when he transfers to a middle school where students are expected to follow the rules. This doesn't sit well with Rafe. With help from his new friend Leo (Thomas Barbusca), the mischievous lad concocts schemes to drive his tyrannical principal (Andy Daly) crazy while also using his charm and wits to impress a girl (Isabela Moner) and battle the bullies.

"Middle School is a treat for kids before they head back to their own classrooms." The Australian
"Downright funny kid-movie satire about the horrors of moving to a new school and dealing with a dictatorial principal who hates creativity and loves oppressing students." Jim Schembri 3AW
"Given the current discussions in this country on how our school system is failing our kids, the movie's plea for creativity over tests will have surprising resonance for parents too." Daily Telegraph (Australia)
