John Marshall is not really a bad school how some may make of it. Any school is simply how you make it. If you are with your kind of people and doing right, nothing will really be bad. The school's vibe can be fun, but there is not a lot of students attending the school compared to others, so in a way it is wack. The teachers all go based on you. There are lots of teachers in the school who really want to help, but if you are not trying to help yourself, they cannot do but so much.

With a School as Unique as John Marshall, it's easily distinguishable if it even deserves to be in a list. the food is horrible, with spoiled milk and other stale edibles, and the overall quality of the hallways and classrooms are between average to unsatisfactory. There's always an insect in sight, and quality vents are scarce, creating a stressful worktime. I can honestly say that it was an overall unsettling 4 years being enrolled here.
I had a poor experience at this school, they do a lot of things backwards and unfair. The student body's behavior needs to be controlled and this school needs serious repairs. I did however, meet some great friends here.
