Very good school and effective teachers and improving every year
student
This school is AMAZING! The teachers are very supportive and helpful! The one issue with the school is a program called AVID were most students are required to carry around a three-inch binder for supplies. Otherwise, this is a great school and will guarantee a great middle school experience!

This school is top notch! Excellent leadership, fantastic programs in advanced subject matter, the arts, sports and overall good character. I had two children go through Murphy and I couldn't be happier with their education and overall experience. Teachers care about the kids and treat them like family=kids enjoy school!

Murphy Junior High is an awesome school, you learn so much stuff. For example: Art, Choir, Cooking class, etc. Students get to do so many hands on stuff, I lost track. The sports after school are awesome, there is so many also. For example: Soccer, Basketball, Track, Intramural, etc. What I like about the school is the community. The students are very nice, hardly see any bulling. The school couldn't improve any better, it's great the way it is. The teachers are so nice, they will help after school and before school if need be. The staff are also great in many ways. I have been going to Murphy for both years it has opened and it feels hard leaving such a great school. Murphy is in a very nice neighborhood. Parents get to help with bake sales for dances, sign up for PTO, and chaperone for field trips. There are awesome assemblies every quarter of the school year, to get the whole school together of what we accomplished, sports, and more. Sincerely, student from Murphy Junior High.
