My son is on his 3rd year at Murray in a EC class. I have enjoyed the staff even though my son has had new teachers every year. With his medical needs the Nurse has been awesome keeping me informed of my sons issues while at school.
We are new to the area and and my daughter and I love the school and the teachers (Mrs.Cotton is great !!) but I wish there was more parent involvement, there should be parent teacher conferences set up every quarter it helps to stay in touch instead of just a progress report.
My daughter loved this school and so did we. She was treated wonderfully by all and excelled in academics and sports. The eighth grade teachers were exceptional. And the guidance dept and office were always ready to assist. I highly recommend this school to anyone.
We just moved here from Maryland and are so very pleased with the 8th grade faculty (Mrs. Stone, Mrs. Cotton and Mrs. Wells)- as well as Mrs. Thompson. Communication is great and the level of dedication to the students is exceptional.
So far, I have had many good experiences at Murray. It is very big, but seems to maintain the division between the grade levels. The school is relatively new and kept very clean. I have never met the Prinipal, but the AP's are very helpful, and Wendy at the desk is very competent. Tabitha T. is great, nurse is wonderful.
I feel there is a lot of potential at Murray, but it has not reached standards which could make it a 'Great School'. There is a dramatic decrease in parental involvement from the elementary level, for reasons which are not evident to me. I do not get a welcoming feeling at all when I visit the school- very drab walls, no upbeat signs, no encouraging or positive visuals hardly at all.
