Is a median number higher than a mean number?

Imagine that you have a list of 15 numbers for example. The mean is the average of those number. In other words, take the sum of all the numbers and divide by how many numbers there are (15 in this case). The median is the "middle number," and is found by arranging all the numbers in order of size and then picking the middle number. If you have 15 numbers, the 8th number is the middle one (there would then be seven smaller numbers and seven larger). If instead you have an even number of numbers, then you don't have a single middle number (you have two), and so you would take the average of the two middle ones (for example, if you have 16 numbers, you take the average value of the 8th and 9th numbers as the median). Whether the median or the mean is larger depends entirely on the specific list of number that you are analyzing.
