Murray High is a very relaxed and fun environment to experience and I love coming to school everyday. All sports teams do great and our principal loved to stay involved with us. I can wait to see the new building!
I like that the district is very academically driven. With top spots in the state, Murray is one of the most expecting schools when it comes to academics. A close second is a tie between the band and sports. Grades come first, but a good basketball game or band show come in a close second. Students participating in any varsity sport and band will spend countless ours perfecting their skills.
