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.
Murray High School is an amazing school with many benefits. With only around 450-500 students, it truly feels like home. The teachers are immensely supportive in all areas and will work around students' schedules while maintaining rigorous standards. Murray High is a small school and the facilities are not the best when compared to other high schools, but the environment and staff make the school absolutely amazing. The students and faculty make up a family and a community of learners. I'm so grateful for all the opportunities provided to me because of this school.
