I agree completely with the last post. And the administration is happy to stand by, and wait for "something illegal" to occur. Absolutely no attempt is made at discipline for bullies. As long as they keep the kids in the school, the state will continue to fund them, regardless of the environment they are fostering. I thought a school on a military installation would set a higher standard of discipline. Teachers have no accountability for their own organization, and when parents come to the office for answers, the administration will refuse to listen. They form their own "wall of silence" and refuse to answer to the community for which they serve. I have learned on mulitple occasions that Murrays teachers have NEVER made a mistake. How silly of me to suggest that. This is the first California school I can honestly say the teachers are performing at the level that they are getting paid. LOW!

Academics may be fine but aggressive students wreak havoc at this school. Students are forced into either the role of bystander, bully or victim. Parents take great pride in student grades and test scores, but are woefully out of touch as to school environment.

I strongly love the teachers at this school, the student body involvment, and the engaging and fun activites this school has to offer. The principal stays very involved by calling on Sunday night to inform of the upcoming week. Five Stars!!

Can't say enough good things about the math instruction at this school. Science teachers continue to be unqualified and substandard educators . To save $, eliminated vice-principal (disciplinarian) for next year.......supported by the Principal as a good idea.

Excellent school. Caring teachers, strong curriculum based on standards, active student body, spirit days, extracurricular opportunities and lots of help for kids who need it.

I went to Murray as a child, and now my son goes there. The positive environment and dedicated teachers have really impressed me. My son has thrived there, and I couldn't recommend it more.

Murray Middle School is dropping in standards. They say one thing and do another.
