My daughter started here this year and I have nothing but good things to say about the school. The teachers are very open and available and easy to reach and communicate with. There are opportunities for parents to be involved if they wish and Administration and Guidance have been helpful and available when needed.

So far Murray Middle has been great. Years ago I was put off by it's location, but that doesn't effect the quality of the school. There are lots of different avenues to have your children involved and excited about school. Children entering middle school are at the point of being independent academically, so the work the child and parents put in over the years is showing off. The teaches are excellent. I think administration strains to try and place everyone appropriately. The facility is clean, although, my daughter will only use one specific bathroom, she is put off by etched in words in other bathrooms she went to. Overall, I think administration is very much on top of any behavior issues; the teachers are great. Hey, every student isn't going to click with every teacher's personality. Administration is responsive. They have incentive trips, etc. Your child has to make their own friends, grades, etc. There is ample opportunity for extracurricula activies, and fun things, like dances. Your child is paramount is sculpting out his/her own experiences. If your child is involved and sets high goals for his/her grades, they will have an awesome experience here.

I would have to disagree with the post about the administration dealing with special education students. I have had a wonderful experience with the administration. Sometimes you get more with honey than vinegar.

This has to be the best experience I've had in all of my years, honestly it was better than my high school years! It's not in the best neighborhood, and people tend to think it's a 'ghetto school' but it's really a great school! I was very involved with band and had such a great time! I never had a bad teacher there, and I learned so much in just 3 years! The only complaint I have is that the dress code was a bit over the top, but otherwise it's a great school and I HIGHLY suggest it to any parent!

This is a bad school. The last two principles have had poor leaderships skills, the school is built in the middle of a ghetto, the school is not being kept clean, and many of the teachers do not do their jobs properly. There is no justice - the dean simply blames the people who come forward so they don't have to spend any time investigating. As a result, the innocent are punished as often as the guilty, and minor infractions are punished more heavily than repeated ones. Fights occur continually and the most commonly used word, second only to 'like', is too profane for me to repeat it to you. There are good teachers, like Mrs. Valella, who make their subjects interesting and entertaining. As a former student, I discourage elementary school students from coming here.

I attended Murray Middle last year and was 'content' there. From what I know there's to many teacher's that get off task and attempt to 'teach'. The dresscode last year(2006-2007) was good. Collared shirts and then the appropriate length and everything for shorts and skirts. For the most part the school is clean,the only people making it dirty are the students. Whether that's a physical attributive or a pyscological one is up to you.

We are 5 stars all the way. An 'A' school for the past seven years straight, . A caring, wonderful staff of professionals. This year we got off to a positive start, niping problems before they had a chance to get started. The dress code is rigid, but it will help bring a more positive, business-like appearance to campus, and may be a reason to create a more positive attitude in some students, by correcting distractions in the learning environment. The improved attitude may lead some students to show an improved effort in learning and higher level of achievement. Please be positively involved, and supportive of our teaching.

For my child Murray was very good, despite the bad rap it gets because of location. My child was given a very good education being in advanced classes. Communication between parents & administration was excellent although teacher to parent was just.... ok. I found if I wanted anything of importance addressed, I went straight to the asst. principle or principle. Each having different personalities you would go to the one you most clicked with. Parent volunteering is very limited from elementary.Murray is way strick on clothing what you cannot wear, especially girls. Its way too overkill and makes kids feel intimidated. Shorts to the knee, my daughter just didnt wear them, therefore No problems.

My son has attended Murray's gifted program for all three years of middle school. The teachers have been very good overall. The gifted program at Murray gives the students an opportunity to keep the same core teachers for 3 years (can be a positive or negative). Mrs. Vallella is the language arts (reading and grammar for us old schoolers!) teacher and I have only the most wonderful, fabulous comments to make regarding her abilites, professionalism, compassion, FCAT preparation, organization, everything, can't say enough about her. However the math and science teachers through the 3 years have left a less than adequate impression. But to the good, this area has straightened itself out and the new science teacher for advanced and gifted is quite good. Overall the school itself is old but the teachers are good. Facility is less than adequate, school population is diverse, band is good, sports are severly underfunded.

I was a student a few years ago (no, I'm not a parent), and I was treated horribly by students there. There is no violence control, and at least one fight breaks out every day. The school is filthy. I never had a good day there, and the tension was killing me. The princaple a few years ago was asked to leave for his stupidity, not because he wanted to retire. This place is so over crowded that it makes me sick. Infact, this county makes me sick. Save yourself the trouble and move away.
