  • Hello, I am 13 years old, and I attended John Witherspoon Middle school for four months in the sixth grade last year. I have been to a total of six public schools since pre-school, one being a classical private school yet I have never had such a wonderful schooling experience then at J.W. Middle school. We had just driven from Newberg, Oregon so that my dad could study at the Princeton Library for the first four months of the school year. I was graciously welcomed by Mrs.Counts as well as by all the students and teachers in house 1. I was challenged to learn, but every teacher brought life and joy to each subject that they taught, that I was convinced they were doing the job they truely loved. Coming from Oregon I was emersed in a beautifully diverse culture that I hadn't expected. Every day I walked down the hall and caught snid-bits of conversations in russian, french, spanish, and many others that I didn't recognise. J.W. will always be an experience that I will love and remember. I miss you J.W.!
