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.
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.
