The Murray Independent Schools have proven to care about giving their students the best education they can. Administration attempts to lead the school through success every year and they've done a great job with the exception of a few important occassions when critical information was not given to the students.

Variety of classes & clubs offered. Love the dual credit classes for high school & college. Building is being renovated. Can't wait to see the improvements next year!
Some of the teachers are excellent, there is a good ratio of teachers to students. The building was old and they are finally doing repairs and renovations. I believe I am prepared for college due to the classes I was able to take.
