Teachers and administrators were great, and class size was small. Many fellow students should not have been allowed in the charter school, however, because they didn’t follow the guidelines.

The constant support and feeling of community saved my life. I love the new administration and their ability to understand and handle tough situations.
Murray is a school based around proficiency and a school of thought called choice theory. The proficiency focus means several things. First you must get an 80 percent on all your assignments, including tests and projects. If you do not make an 80 you will have to redo the assignment or make corrections until you make that minimum grade. They also do not believe in homework. In their minds homework is either busy work on a subject you already understand, or you end up struggling with material without the aide of your teacher to explain things, either way an exercise in futility. The incorporating of choice theory means they try to give students as much freedom as possible. For example at any time you can get out of classic and go on a five minute walk, be it to give you a break from classwork or to allow yourself out of an uncomfortable situation. If you do something that is not outright illegal, such as assaulting another student, or bringing drugs to school, you are not punished. They talk to you about what caused the situation to occur, what role you played in allowing it to occur, and then talk about what you and the people involved can do to prevent it from occurring again. Teachers are not automatically in the right. Your voice will be heard.
