This school should be the poster child of how the American public school system is failing our children. Have two children in different grades and we are sorely disappointed in the performance of the teachers. The teachers are unenthusiastic and do not inspire the children. When complaints are made to the administrators concerning the teachers, they back the teachers and we are made to feel our concerns are not valid. Will be taking my children out of this school next year.
Murchison has very little parental involvment. Also, as a Christian Family, we were used to higher Christian values...This is lacking in this school. The whole system seems harsh and is on it's own tangent...teachers seem to be more worried about themselves than the children. They need more after school activities for the children to get involved in. Very unhappy with them...wish we could have stayed in the RR school district!
Murchison Elementary is a wonderful school with the most wonderful, caring teachers.
Wow! We love Murchison! We have a child in the regular program and one in the Pegusus program and just think the world of the teachers! They work well with parents and truly care. Great parent involvement says tons about this school! Love it!
This is our second year at Murchison and we are plaesed. We came from another 'Recoginized' school in another district and they are comparable. The teachers/staff have been very kind and helpful to our children. Parent involvement is lower than what we've previously seen at our other school.
This school is above average. Good teching staff that cares about the kids. Lots of activities.
My child attended Murchison for Kindergarten and loved it! His teacher was excellent and they very warmly welcomed parent volunteering. All the staff was very helpful and their extracurricular activities were superb. My son learned a great deal in the computer lab and loved art, music and PE. It was a wonderful kindergarten experience for both of us! Unfortunatly we moved to Arizona and now my son is attending 1st grade Phoenix. There is a definite difference in the way the schools are run and the academic program. We would love to get him back to the Pflugerville ISD.
I ended up pulling my child out of Murchison to homeschool, it was such a frustrating ordeal to attempt to work with the school. The teachers seem to be unduly harsh on the students, with no correction from the administration. The children have very little stress outlets as they have limited time or space to let off energy.
