The district middle school, John Witherspoon Middle School, is located across from the high school athletic fields on Walnut Lane.
The school offers 200 courses in many subjects and levels, including most of the courses in the Advanced Placement Program.
More than 70% of students take at least one AP or accelerated course.

Students must also pass the Biology State Assessment the year they are enrolled in a Biology course.
