Teacher effectiveness: Strongly agree


- a
Our experience with the teaching staff has been wonderful. The pre-k teachers were so warm and loving and conforting to both the children and to the parents. As a 1st time parent, i was put at ease knowing my pre-schooler was in excellent caring hands. The kindergarten teacher is a certified reading specialst--my daughter was reading in the first month of school! The 1st and 2nd grade teachers instilled a love and appreciation of math and science and burtured my child's curiosity. In 3rd grade I see growth and devlopment in being a good neighbor and citizen in the classroom with other students whose personalities are not natural fits with my child's disposition. These outcomes from teacher interractions and instruction are invaluable.

Amount of homework: Agree

Develops character: Strongly agree

These qualities are intentionally developed in the culture of Murphy School. The emotional and social development of the stduents is as valued as the educational growth.



- a
The faculty and the administration are completely dedicated to providing high quality instruction and learning environment. All fo the teachers write grant proposals to work toward reducing budget shortfalls. Emphasis on the fine and performing arts, on high school and college preparation, and developing integrity a love of reading, and responsible citzenship make the stduent experience well-rounded and ultra-valuable. The motto of "the caring community" is fulfilled! This school is a true gem!

Wonderful neighborhood school. Great teachers who go all-out for kids! Plus, all kids get art, music, dance, drama, technology, and phys ed every week. Prides itself as "The Caring Community," and it is.




- a
My children are not only receiving an amazing education they are also part of a community that cares for them as developing individuals. Their learning is rigorous, engaging, and is preparing them for future success.

Amount of homework: Disagree


- a
I only say this because I don't believe 1st graders should receive homework, and mine has at least 2 pages everyday.



- a
This school is absolutely top notch. The community is indeed a caring one and it reflects on the children who attend. The principal is warm, friendly, and attentive to everyone (she even knows all of the students names!) I wish all cps schools could follow Murphy 's example.




- a
Teachers are engaged and really care about their students. They invite parents to como inside and get involved



- a
The teachers and staff at Murphy are committed and caring. They foster a positive learning environment and a strong community within the school.
