Bishop John A. Marshall School is the best school ever. I’ve been going to this school since kindergarten. This school seems easy at the beginning, but that’s because they’re just reviewing what you learned the year before. Then the teachers start challenging your brain with new knowledge. Anyway, l think this school is great because it’s fun, educational, and it’s small.
The first reason why l think Bishop John A. Marshall School is the best is because it’s so much fun. First, we have a pep rally on the same day as Homecoming. At the pep rally we meet in the gym where we have fun and games. The pep rally is probably the most fun DAY of the year. Second, we have P.E. which is awesome. In P.E. we learn new fun games like four square, and learn new sports like lacrosse. Last, we have an entire week of dress down days and activities, called Catholic Schools Week. Catholic Schools Week is the best week ever because you don’t get a lot of school work and it’s mostly fun and games.
The second reason why I think Bishop Marshall is the best is because you will get a great education. First, when the teachers teach you they make sure you get it before they move on. But if you get it right away then you can go over it so you make sure you have mastered it. Second, this school is a private school so you’ll most likely be ahead of other schools. The homework helps strengthen your mind. Last, we have tests called Terra Nova tests. The Terra Nova’s test your knowledge in every subject.
The last reason why l think Bishop Marshall is the best is because it’s small. First, you could easily find your way around. It’s a small school so you would be able to find your way around faster than you can say supercalifragilisticexpialidocious or Czechoslovakia, even if it’s your first day here. Second, it is never crowded. When you are almost late to a class you won’t get sucked into a crowd. Last, we don’t spend time going from one class to another. We have three classes in one room, art, band, and music.
Bishop John A. Marshall School is the best because, like l told you before, I’ve been going to this school since kindergarten, and l know most of the teachers pretty well. So all the teachers are all very nice, none of them are mean. It is fun, educational, and it’s small. Now you know why I think Bishop John A. Marshall School is the best school ever.
