  • Hello, kiddo005. I can't think of any situation where I'd use either. // Our sister site, ELL, may be more appropriate, but they'd expect proper capitalisation and at least a full sentence as an example. – Edwin Ashworth Jun 24 '17 at 7:14

If you want to describe something that happened while half of your high school got completed, you should say "(During the) middle of my high school".

I wish you were a little more specific with the sentences.

  • Thanks. the full sentence was- Middle of my school, sometime between 2007 and 2012 i began to practice playing guitar. Is it now correct? – kiddo005 Jun 24 '17 at 8:02

    I think "in the middle" suggests place rather than time (so "middle of my school" implies "in the centre of the school building"). It would be more natural to say "At some time during my school years..." or "Half way through my schooling..." – Kate Bunting Jun 24 '17 at 8:22
  • ... 'Halfway through my time at high school ...'. – Edwin Ashworth Jun 24 '17 at 11:26

    @kiddo005, You can say, "In the middle of my schooldays/schooling...". In this way, you wouldn't have to alter your sentence much. – BlackSwan Jun 25 '17 at 5:52
