I liked how nice and cool the teachers were and that my mom worked there so they let me see her anytime I wanted for the most part. Its in a nice spot, I could walked to my house and to town from school in a matter of 5 minutes. There were a lot of sports and plays that I enjoyed. I really liked it there.

John Witherspoon Middle School is the best school in my area. It feels like a home to me, and I am happy to be going there. It is ahead in academics, the teachers are kind and helpful, and the food is great. I would recommend it to everyone looking for a safe, good school for their children. It is very welcoming to everyone and provides a great community.
The teachers are very nice and well respected. JW offers one of the most advenced band programs with student playing high school and collage level pieces. Their math and english programs are very good and the teachers are always willing to help you out. JW also offers a wide range of clubs and sports to try out. The teachers always do their best to prepere you for the next grade, making sure you know everything you kneed and more. The electives they have to offer at the school are very diverse and range from S.T.E.M. Robotics and Coding to Food Sciences. Another thing that makes JW stand out is the fact that it has a pool that is incoropreated into the Gym classes.
