Murphy middle school used to be a good school, but it has been going worse. It's said the school team dropped to 5th position in 2015 N. Texas math count competition. it's was 3rd one in 2014!!!. The math class teachers are not qualified. Otto middle school might replace current position of Murphy middle school in the future.

Murphy is a wonderful school. I am a current eighth grader and have absolutely LOVED all my 3 years here. It's hard to describe, but I just don't want to leave middle school because all of the students are just so kind to one another and it is just so easy to sit next to somebody and start an interesting conversation. The teachers here are tremendous. You can tell that they really care about the students' success and they are just so fun to be around. Many of the teachers are young so they have a relatable sense of humor. There is very little bullying in Murphy Middle School and it is definitely a wonderful place that students can thrive in.

Murphy was the worst 3 years of my life. This school changed who I am in so many different ways, I saw and heard things that I wish I never did. I rode the bus to and from school almost everyday and got made fun of for being a Muslim and wearing a scarf. After a year I decided it was too much to handle, so I took it off one day. I walked onto that bus and I never got made fun of for it again. The fine arts programs are amazing and so are most of the teachers there. I had a lot of good and bad memories from this school. The work is tough in 8th but everything else was a breeze. All in all its an okay school... I wish I could've transferred though.

I love this school, however I am sorry my last review was my brother typing on my computer. This school has mostly amazing teachers, however the school system makes it a bit hard to progress if you are very advanced/gifted. They don't want to spend too much time on the higher up things, instead they focus on the bottom to make sure everyone is doing okay.

I am glad I go to this school. Just because of all the great teachers. I am looking foward to moving on and having a very succesful future. Also, to move on in life to care and not to care. This school takes great care of the murphy family. That is including the neighborhood, the city, the teachers , and especcially the students. Thanks Murphy Middle School.

How could this parent know or have an opinion on if everyone is treated equal? This once again proves my point....focal point fine arts!

This is a great school! Very tough and lots of homework, it's not a school for a lazy child thats for sure! I feel that my child will be prepared when its time for high school! The work load in math is completely different so be prepared. Everyone is treated equally, and the orchestra program is one of the best you will find!

Im a seventh grader going here and I love it. There are many electives (classes) to choose from, a wonderful athletic department (im starting defensive end and "Y" receiver this year), and an amazing fine arts department. The teachers are kind, and are always looking to help. I just got home from one of the socials which are really fun,...if you know what i mean. (wink)

this school is just plain average. the coaches are great. but students here are way too up tight and need to learn to relax more. it also was a very tough school. which may be a good thing. until the students begin to feel pressured. The parents need to chillax more too.

This school is overall an above average school. It does however have some issues. There is a teacher that provided things for some students and not for others. After several months of correspondence, we finally decided to escalate it to the principal. The principal made the necessary interventions, but stated she could not believe anything negative could have occurred even after being presented with the documentation. Leadership should look at situations with an open mind. Not everything is golden.

I had enjoyed Murphy Middle School so much when I was their. 6th through 8th grade were the best years of my life. The athlete coaches there really do care about their athletes and have many city championships. This school help me become the person I am today.

What a wonderful school! My son just blossomed here. The teachers and administration and parental involvement are all superb. The Theater department is the best to be found.

Murphy is the best middle school and the greatist for fine arts tha music program has won so many awards and the drama owns. We were awarded CITY CHAMPS. The athletics progam also beats out everyother school. No matter how you put it Murphy is the best in Academics,Sports,Fine Arts, and meeting diffrent and new people. The teachers at first seem hard but after while they get to know you they will inspire you so much and change your life. Mrs. Manley we miss you, and Mrs.Ashton we love you -thanks for reading

This is an excellent school to attend! I went there for three years, and enjoyed middle school. The building is beautiful, and many of the teachers are great! The arts programs, such as Orchestra, and Theatre, are excellent. While I sometimes found many of the rules strict, I had a wonderful middle school experience at Murphy.

My son was in the initial class that opened the school 3 years ago. I have been very impressed with everything about the school! The building is beautiful and functional in keeping the 6th graders separate from the older grades. The band and other music programs are great! The Speech Team encourages many kids to participate and Murphy has dominated every competition since inception! I have been pleased with the athletics as they strike a good balance between being competitive without leaving out all the kids that want to play football. They also allow every girl who wants to cheer to do so! I have seen that the teachers really take an interest in these kids. They are phenomenal! The principal, Bonnie Manley, is very adept at maintaining control and discipline. There are few problems, if any, because of her leadership. Great facility! Great staff! Great school!

Murphy Middle School is an excellent school. The academic areas are outstanding and the fine arts programs are huge. The Orchestra and Band programs are some of the largest in the state and the Drama department has won many awards.
