As a Junior at Murray High School I'm really enjoying it here. It's easy to make friends, there's diversity, culture, and school spirit. When it comes to school news like Spartan Vision they have a more organized system compared to other schools with school news. Also when it comes to performing arts like theatre, art, and band; the students there are really dedicated to the extra curricular activities. The bottom line is the school is great and people really show their dedication and spirit!

Murray was a good school, they cared about your grades for sure, and definitley your attendance! Unlike most schools they weren't very good at sports - but that isn't a huge deal. Murrays counselors really helped their students try and succeed by doing a lot of check up appointments and even doing meetings with you every single year to make sure you are prepared for college, and all the oppurtunities college has to offer you
Hey there, I'm a sophomore at Murray High school, next year I will be attending the school as a junior. If you happen to find this review I will tell you my experience so far in Murray High school! I had only attend to this school for one year so I don't really know who it entirely works, so I'm sorry if I do make an mistake. The school's pretty neutral, there are hardly any drama seen among the students (like fights, bullying, etc). The teachers love what they do, and everyone in the staff are very dedicated to their jobs. And it's easy to make friends once you've got some confidence. Which makes your school days enjoyable. Of course there are some trouble makers but the teachers would make sure to stop it, but in a way neither side wont get hurt. The school's pretty clean I shouldn't forget to credit the generous students that wound pick up random trash and help out the school. And plus everyone is pretty confident they're not afraid to show their flaws which is very nice.
