I attend William F. Murphy school and I adore it with all of my heart!!!!! The staff pushes the students to do their very best and achieve their goals completely. I have had some situations at Murphy about my attitude but they helped me get through it and become a bigger and better person. Our school activities are awesome!!! I enjoy family fun night with food and games. My friends are the best. At Murphy you will definetly find friends that you can trust. Lastly, our academics are amazing. This school surely helped me with my grades. Come to Murphy, it will be a great experience for your child!!!:-)
We had to pull our child out of this school due to unmitigated disputes between children - kids spitting on others, fighting, etc. The teachers and principle could not control the situations. The curriculum is laughable. When we speak to parents of kids there they have the same stories of misbehaved kids, an unresponsive principal, and academic standards that barely qualify for the word "standards". Last year - 2009 - a teacher lost control of a classroom and recorded a video of the brawl on her phone. She showed it to some parents but not others, and did not mention it to parents at parent teacher conferences. The fact that this school is better rated than a few others in the area terrifies me.
