Teacher effectiveness: Strongly disagree

Teachers are part of the bulling problem - they yell at the kids and get away with it. Administration doesn't care, and kids are left afraid of staff.

Amount of homework: Disagree

Our family time is ruined if we followed their homework amounts - 5 hours a night is minimum. Our middle schooler is required to turn the light out by 11pm nightly, but its almost a guarantee that they haven't finished all the homework. Is this middle school or college?


Develops character: Strongly disagree

What fairness? Bullies rule the school and are free to pick on kids. They allow bullies to cyber-bully with their free laptops and don't monitor inappropriate usage of computers they give out. But when every child in the district has a computer, that makes it tough to monitor. Kids are spoiled. They exclude all low income children because they have expensive "class" trips that kids are "required" to go on, yet the cost is more than a family vacation! They separate the haves and the have nots by requiring parents to pay extremely high fees, regardless of ability, and then a handful of children are left behind due to being poor. The PTC is run the same way, and the PTC goes after money and more money - excluding many kids from events due to the high costs.

Is this middle school or college?? The school does not treat the children well as it assumes all kids are rich and Harvard prep. The staff yells and kids are spoiled bullies- tearing down kids.

This school is great. All of the teachers here help every single student to their full needs. The parent-teacher communication is excellent.

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.
