If it's for school, you will want to allow a budget that also allows you to purchase a Microsoft Office subscription card to help you focus on your studies. I know it's an extra purchase but you're going to kick yourself in the pants if you don't plus you're a student so you qualify for discount pricing.
Are you focusing on education using your laptop or are you allowing some room to game? There are decent machines in that range that have the latest generation Core i5 processors which do a great job of everything as long as you don't set your gaming expectations too high (ex purchase a laptop, expect it to run XBOX One quality gaming)

Unless your going to game then for junior high the reality is you do not need a big powerful machine. You may want to use it to help create reports with photos but MS Paint should work fine.
However, I would recommend a laptop that runs full Windows 10. As Hocky... indicated it would allow you to run MS Office. You may also be able to get a full version at Student Prices.
I would not go smaller than a 15" screen. Prolonged research in a tiny screen gets frustrating.
Best Buy has a lot of good laptops in the $350 to $600 range.
Be aware many new laptops today do not come with a DVD drive. This is a bonus becuase it reduces weight. It is a negative becuase if you get software that comes on DVD you need an external drive.
