J. Witherspoon Middle School Reviews

1 review
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.
