I absolutely love Murray County High School! There is no other school I would rather attend. We have amazing, caring teachers and employees. Our principal is awesome and she does everything she can to ensure our school is a safe and productive learning environment.

It is an overall good school. Good teachers and students. I feel like we need more time in between classes. With all the students in the school, it makes it more difficult to get to class on time. Also, when going to the restroom; many students go there in between class so it takes up the few minutes we have to get to class.
This school has great academics, although it does need some changes. For starters we need more resources so the teachers are not strapped down to do the same teaching style everytime. The school building also need repairs. Even with the negative features of the school I have had a great experience with friends, being taught, and in sports.
