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.
Certain teachers do exactly what many students would expect and imagine: inspire and motivate. Of the many teachers I have had, a number of them will always be revered for their thoughtfulness, genuine care, interactive lessons, and exceptional expertise in their career. These brilliant individuals truly strive to spark a flame in their students, as they provoke them to critically think and incorporate the importance of common sense and intuition. Many of the teachers at Murray High School sincerely care for their students not only within the classroom, but beyond it as well. This aspect of them is clearly shown through their lessons and lectures on a day to day basis. It can be seen that these teachers undoubtedly enjoy their jobs, and that their care is impactful and relentless.
