Murray School District has the pros and cons of any other school district you decide to visit. Firstly, in my opinion Murray has some of the best teachers that care about you passing their courses and giving you the resources to help you succeed. The school spirit is what makes high school memorable and Murray schools have the best spirt at games or just at assemblies. Super fun to participate in all aspects that Murray high puts on. However, don't bother trying to get ahead with school courses because they won’t even allow you to even join most of the college classes unless you are at a senior level or declare yourself as an early graduate. I just think that if they strive to see students succeed in their school they shouldn’t put unnecessary restrictions on students who want to get ahead. Also as a student who is ahead, they really don’t offer a ton of college courses compared to other school districts.
