English term or phrase: attached ... to
Attached Middle School to Tongji University

It is a name of a middle school. Do this kind of middle schools exist in English speaking countries, which are affiliated with or attached to a university? How to name them properly?

Explanation:
I think this is something that would definitely call for expansion/explanation for U.S. readers Jianming. As Mike explained this doesn't exist in the the states. I checked out your link. It still sounds clumsy. I'd recommend "Shanghai Tongji University affiliated middle school".
