Murchison Middle School Reviews

While attending Murchison some odd years ago, dress code was upheld, behavior was rewarded or reprimanded when necessary and the faculty and staff took pride in upholding such high standards. Seeing it now when dropping off my sibling, I can see that these standards and values are no longer seemingly important.

Murchison is definitely a unique school. The education is enriching and thoroughly prepares students for high school and beyond. There are many clubs and communities to be involved in. The only issue I could find here is the overbearing enforcements at student events. It feels as if the students are not able to act in ways they would like to. For example, students are asked to dance a certain way at student dances.
