This school is great. All of the teachers here help every single student to their full needs. The parent-teacher communication is excellent.
The school is fine ya good ya but the school does not do anything for bullying or anything its just average
Marie Murphy has been an exceptional experience for my child. The teachers are extremely competent and make life in school very interesting. Given the small size of the classes, most teachers will ensure that each child get the appropriate degree of challenge or help they require. This degree of attention to each child rivals most private schools. The Science Olympiad program is phenomenal. There is a reason this school does extraordinarily well at the state and national competitions. The fact that grades and homework are available on-line and real-time helps keep parents up to date with their childrens' progress. Every child has their own laptop.
I go to this school, and it is just amazing! It has a broad selection of extra-curricular activities. Another thing I love about this school, is that we get our own Macbooks. Now these are not only for our personal use, but you may also use it for school. You may do things like book reports or essays on Microsoft Word. We also have this application we use called, Google Docs. Many of you may already use it, but it is a great idea for school use. We share with our classmates and teachers and we work on projects with our fellow classmates, and if they are online, we are able to chat with them, and talk to them about the project. Overall, this school is Excellent. Five out of Five Stars!!!
All I have to say about this school is wow. I have learned and developed social skills that I will use later in life thanks to the wonderful and supportive teachers that serve at Marie Murphy middle school. The school also supplies a laptop for every single student and has an outstanding arts program and also many excellent extracurricular activities. It is also the best feeder school going into New trier, and is the 17th best in the state! I really actually look forward to going to this school and learning something new everyday.
I go to this school and it is the best because there are many different classes and very nice teachers
This school is excellent. The arts program is especially strong. As a student, I am free to express my creativity through music, technology and other opportunities available. The 1 on 1 laptop program is awesome!
Great extracurricular activities and sports. Science Olympiad is always best in state. Teachers, Pupil Services, and Substitutes have bad teaching ability and they are very weak. The principal should retire.
I really love this school. I always feel like we are learning alot. I admit they push us alot but that will get us just alot farther!
This is the best school yet since i move around a lot, my son has excelled and worked hard. There are many rewards to being a bright student at this school.
What an incredible school is all I can say. Every grade has excellent teachers and the curriculum is very integrated. The small class size cannot be found anywhere else (20 students). It's a private education on a public budget. My son has thrived and excelled academically. He has been challenged and his mind engaged. The science program has to be the best in state by far. Three years running as Science Olympiad State Champions! I have older kids that went through Marie Murphy but it wans't as good than. They certainly have there act together. And most importantly my son his happy and secure and thriving in this nurturing environment. I just cant say enough I could go on and on!
This school has many great teachers and a great deal of parental involvement. Unfortunately there are some poor teachers and the pupil service department is especially weak.
Having spent three years as a Marie Murphy parent, I can sum up my evaluation of the school in two words: great place! The small size and positive educational spirit helped build a lasting sense of community for my student; the friendships formed there have continued long into high school, even though the 'old friends' rarely have classes together. Marie Murphy programs are strong across the board, but, for us, the science and music programs really stood out. The teachers were outstanding, and their enthusiasm and encouragement helped my student discover some interests that are well on their way to becoming life-long passions.
