Layer 2 switch.  Although it may be L3 functions (ACL,QoS,IPSG, etc.) ,   it's NOT LAYER 3 switch.

Because it does not have IP Routing Capability.

Cisco introduced Layer 3 switching on the 2960S, 2960G, 2960, and 2975 series switches when running the LAN BASE IOS with version 12.2(55)SE.

But there’s a small catch…it does NOT support RIP, OSPF, EIGRP, BGP, or routed interfaces. It ONLY supports 16 static routes with SVIs.

Hope this helps
