Murray High has a very safe climate, where all the students are generally very kind close knit. I would say one of the best aspects of the school is the counselors, who’ve always worked very hard during the school year to support their students, and to make sure that all concerns are addressed. However, I would say that there could be improvements in effective communication—especially on certain events, such as when they happen, where, and why. Other than that, it’s an amazing district.
I have just started at Murray High School this year as a sophomore and so far I am having a good experience. Everything about it is either average or above it! One thing Murray really needs to work on is culture awerness and diversity! It’s hard having very small communities of certain cultures such as Polynesians. Murray literally had a grand total of twelve Polynesian- Pacific Islanders attending there. It’s not the schools fault but if it could be fixed that’d be really great! Overall just a fun environment to be around though.
