I go to Switzerland Point Middle School, it will be my second year there, my brother went through Swiz too. Swiz is wonderful! The teachers, students, classes! EVERYTHING! And I am not just saying this. If you are a sixth grader they help you out sooo much not only on the first day but for the rest of the year! The teachers are really do care about you and your grades! There is so much after school activities and great electives to chose from! Switzerland Point Middle School is the best Middle School in St.Johns county, Jacksonville, Florida, USA, North America, THE WHOLE WORLD!
