The teachers, especially the English department, are all generally wonderful people. All of the teachers are very welcoming, and kind to the students which is helpful for a successful high school career. Changes I would like to see are fixing the track and football field.

Murphysboro is a great place to send your kids. The teachers are excellent and very helpful to all students and parents. With my experience at Murphysboro I will assure that your kid or you as a student will enjoy Murphysboro CUSD 186.
Unfortunately there is a lot of bullying that goes on within this school. This year alone one student chose to take his life.
