Awful school. Pe teachers made my class run in a square, and if we slowed down, they'd add a minute, I almost died. Thanks school: |, glad I not in that school anymore.
I seriously love this school! It's the best way to teach kindness and kids, I am very happy to go to John wash!
I think John Wash is a great place. I know I'm just a 2nd grader, but John Wash is the best place. It may be my opinion you don't have to agree with me though. John Wash is a really hard working school! My teacher Mrs. Barton is the best, she teaches us a lot of things! Learning is amazing. John Wash is a place where you meet kind, funny nice friends around the blacktop/playground! John wash deserves it for being a really hard working school!
