    Featured Review: Middle School Student says The teachers are great. They push you to do your best, and have very reasonable boundaries that have repercussions if you make them cross that line.The students are very diverse, and the students work really well together, no matter who it is.The teachers prepare you a lot for high school, even exceeding the expeditions for what the students need to know in order to get a passing grade. Especially the science they teach. They prepare you...Except they pile on homework and projects pretty excessively. Although it has been pretty manageable so far, it’s definitely going to get more difficult as the year goes on.Overall, a very good school that i wouldn’t want to transfer out of. It’s my last year at Marie Murphy, and I have to say that I will miss the staff and comfort at Marie Murphy.-A.M., Eighth Grader at Marie Murphy.
