We couldn't be happier with the experience our kids have had at AMHS! Our oldest graduated last Spring, our twins are currently Freshmen, and our daughter will start in the Fall. Each of our students is completely different and has completely different needs both academic, and social. AMHS has taken the time to know them as individuals and support each of them in the most proactive way possible. It's expensive, but sending our kids through AMHS is the best money we'll ever spend. You can't have a do over of those high school years and I can't imagine a more supportive, caring environment for our kids.

Archbishop Murphy High School is a very good place to get education. You will make friends and have those friendships after you are done with attending Archbishop Murphy. It is a smaller community so you get to know everybody really fast. I think some draw backs are the fact that Archbishop Murphy is in problems with some of the teachers and how they are teaching. Ever since I was a freshman, at least 2-3 of the teachers that taught me had to be let go cause there were complaints about them. There are also very good teachers at this school as well. Most of the teachers at Archbishop Murphy are very helpful for making sure you understand the concepts that they are teaching you. Many of these teachers will even stay an hour after school incase the students do not fully understand these concepts. I would definitely recommend students to go to Archbishop Murphy High School if they are looking for a safe, catholic and studious environment.
I love this school! It is filled with teachers that truly care about your future and your experience at Murphy. We have excellent sport teams and the school is filled with spirit. Academics are of the highest priority, as they should be. The rigiours work prepared me for college and taught me life lessons. The only thing that needs work at Murphy is the administrative staff. Some of the staff get away with too much without procedures in place. Overall it is a great school with a strong community but like any institution it could always use improvement.
