It's not a bad school, but it doesn't really stand out much. We aren't a very well known school. However, due to the smaller nature of the school, classes aren't as crowded as they could be and the teachers are generally nice and try to help you out if you ask. The food is also pretty good and the academics here are awesome due to the fact that the school has a lot of options concerning concurrent enrollment, internships and AP classes. We aren't really good at sports and don't have a lot of school spirit. The student body officers try to make the student body excited, but it doesn't really work. Our teams aren't amazing like some other school teams. We do have a lot of clubs and at the beginning of each year, we have an event detailing what all the clubs are. Diversity is very low at the school, but there still is some to be seen, although it's not as prevalent as it could be. All in all, though, it's a good school with good teachers and great classes.

My experience at Murray High was a great one! Lots of excellent teachers and a lot for college classes. I was able to be prepared for college here at Murray. Murray is a great place with good people! There were some things I struggled with (just like everywhere). I was a little disappointed in the assistance on occasion that counsolers gave for classes and college applications. Overall, a great school.
Murray High School, was a great place to be for me to learn and grow was a student and as a person. The theater department at Murray is wonderful and doesn't get the recognition it deserves. I have spent the last three years calling our theater home. While Murray may be a wonderful place to learn and grow there are some problems with it, there's not really a sense of community within the school, and while we may not have a bullying problem we certainly aren't connected in a way that would benefit individuals or the community. Our school's citizenship policy causes our graduation rates to go down and punishes instead of rewards which is a system that does more harm than good. I have enjoyed my time here at Murray, the teaching staff and school counselors helped to push me to be a better student as well as a better person.
