Murphy Jr. High school is the best! We moved from district 204 Hill Jr. High to 308. I have to say it was the best decision we made. Murphy's staff is awesome. Mrs. Brandy (Student Counselor) was so supportive and played a key role in my son's success. Also Mr. Bittner is one of the absolute best history teacher we have enough ever encountered. He keeper the kids engaged and excited about history. We love him!

It's fine. Nothing really special. Doesn't suck. They have great chicken patties ngl. Their clubs have bad funding. Their music program is actually really good so shoutout to the choir and band teacher.
I went to Murphy for all of my junior high schools. I love the school and the staff. The administration (front desk) is amazing!! There are teachers there who truly care. Especially Mr. Erickson and Mrs. Borneman, if you have them.
