I just moved to Murray High two years ago, but I have absolutely fallen in love! I have learned so much in my past two years, and quite honestly, I wish I could have attended my entire school career. The teachers are all very down to earth and helpful, and the overall environment is friendly and welcoming. I am always encouraged and excited to join new extra curricular activities, and the parents are always involved. My classes are all interactive and hey, the school lunch isn't too bad, either!

Murray High School has given me an opportunity to grow in an academic, athletic, and artistic standing. Many of the students here are involved with at least one extra curricular activity. The involvement brings a connection between people that cannot be replaced. There is a strong emphasis on art in the school with a greatly supported art and music program. The teachers and staff are all friendly and welcomes all, regardless of a person's background and beliefs. There is something for everyone here.
The teachers here are so loving and nurturing. They will provide you with the one-on-one attention you need, and they work hard to build a personal connection with all of their students.
