    "The parents, teachers, and administration at Murphy are caring, thoughtful people who genuinely work together to make the school an amazing part of our community, and a wonderful school for our neighborhood children. Anyone looking to raise kids in Chicago should seriously consider Murphy."

    "Our family is blessed to be a part of John B Murphy School. Our children thrive emotionally, socially and academically by being a part of this school. They are truly a diamond in the ruff tucked away in a quiet residential neighborhood. I love the way they constantly reach out to the community and parents and offer free classes on a variety of subjects to the students entire family. Every staff member cares deeply about the children and their families and go beyond the call of duty for anyone. We love that Murphy School is a Fine Arts Magnet Cluster school! Our children have been exposed to so many awesome events, field trips and experiences that the average child will never see in their lifetime. Most importantly, I am comforted when I see the principal, vice principal, and volunteer parents standing on the sidewalks and around the school before and after school with their watchful eyes. Everyone works together to make sure there's a safe environment for the children and let's face it - that's a big concern today. The only negative thing about this school is that it only goes to 8th grade. Go Owls!"

    "This is our local school. I transferred my sons in grade 5 and 2 several years ago away from believe it or not, an unresponsive magnet school. I made the best decision of my life by going with my local John B. Murphy for both. They have now completed their elementary years and both tested into Taft Academic Centers for 7th and 8th grade. The teachers really see and teach the whole child, nurturing their talents, while addressing challenges. These teachers know and love their students. This is a student centered environment. I have other family living with us now leaving the suburban system, and we would only trust Murphy teachers to care for them. The principal and vice principal are the tops."
