Murray County Schools Reviews

Murray County is an amazing school. Whenever you need to talk to someone about anything the counselors are always there to talk. The administration is always involved with the students to make sure they are okay and provide them with anything they need. The sports teams are fun to go watch and support. It’s easy to meet new people and make life long friends. The teachers are great at talking to parents and students to make sure the student graduates on time while still feeling like they can have fun. I’m glad to say that I am Murray Indian Graduate. Once an Indian, Always an Indian!

It was absolutely a fantastic experience being a Murray Indian. The Teachers and the Administration employees were really friendly and knowledgeable about their field. The teachers were more like peers than an instructor; helped us out in various situations, i.e, both academic and personal life. The only drawbacks I would like to mention are college readiness and the clubs. The academic is not at all challenging except in one or two subjects-affects the overall student college readiness; in terms of clubs, it would be fun if they added more various types of clubs or even add some pre-engineering courses, which could help students who like pursue an engineering major in their college. Giving them a heads up before their college career is indeed significant.
I have been a student in Murray County Schools for 13 years, and it has been a good experience for me so far. I feel like I have received a quality education and am ready for college. I am grateful that North Murray High School has given me the opportunity to start pursuing my degree through dual enrollment. This program has saved me and my family a lot of money, and it has reduced the time I will have to be in college. The only thing I would change about this school system is that the teachers and administrators need to prepare students for the SAT and ACT. I have learned that these test scores are very important, and they are needed to go to go to your college of choice. Overall, my experience with Murray County has been great and I am thankful to have been a part of it.
