    "I have two kids in Murphy school and they are the best. Principal and asst. principal are so involved with the kids. I have never seen the principals so involved in all the kids life like at Murphy. I might have to leave because of I'm not in the school district but I'm trying to fight it because the school is excellent. I also love that there is a diversity in race and I think that is very important."

    "My daughter has attended Murphy for 3 years now and I absolutely love it. It truly stands by it's motto of "Caring Community". The principle and assistant know everyone by name and the families are very involved. It was the fine arts curriculum that interested me the most but it's the family atmosphere that keeps us there."

    "Murphy School is a top notch school with incredible teachers who have helped to encourage our children to acheive great heights in academics as well as pushing their artistic envelope. I went to Murphy as a child and one thing that still rings true today is it's ability to confront advercity and to find creative solutions with the help and support of it's community. If we were to use social media outlets, like Facebook, as a measure of how much of a lasting impression Murphy has left on its Alumni, it could easily be seen how Murphy can be considered one of the best."

    "My son went to Murphy from kindergarden through the 6th grade. He had such a well rounded education at Murphy. And even performed at Ravinia on the Xylophone! He learned to play the guitar a little too! The Arts program cannot be beat! The three R's were also at the top of the list. He did have some problem with reading - the nightmare of any parent. And he got all the help I could ask for at that school. I loved every teacher that he had. The security person, the office people, the food servers, even the maintenance crew are wonderful. And the heads of the school are so dedicated to educating the children! My son left Murphy on the honor roll, a science fair winner and a wonderful citizen."

    "I have two children in Murphy. The school is great. My one child is now in the 6th grade and will have to leave Muphy as it only goes to the 6th grade. My fear is i will not find another school as good as Murphy. The teachers there are the best. Both of my children are honor students I know its because of the way the school works with each childs needs with there after school programs. All i can say is thank you to the staff at Murphy for being there for the Children."
