Murdock Elementary School Reviews

1 review
Would like to see teachers create more meaning and relevance in their curriculum, especially in upper grades. Few teachers offer differentiated instruction. Have not seen evidence of New Generation Science Standards being implemented - science seems to be outsourced through do at home projects with little or no mentoring. Playground supervision on the lower field is insufficient for the upper grade recess. Some years, k-4 we had lovely teachers and our children enjoyed school. Later years our experience was not enjoyable, issues were rampant, and basically ironed over. Be prepared to advocate for your child if necessary as there appears to be little in class observation conducted by administration, and some entrenched upper grade teachers are in the districts blind spot. This school caters to families who can volunteer during the school day regularly, once you stop volunteering, you will note a difference in the way your child is treated.
