    "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."

    "This is a great school. My daughter had the honor and privilege of attending this school from k-mid 3rd grade. The teachers are excellent and eager to teach. The principal is beyond what one expects a principal to be she has a big heart, open door policy you speak to her she listens with her heart. But one of things I most admired about her is that makes a point to address each child by name. She is a hand on principal she's out there in morning to greet, she out at recess, she out as well to farewell to them at the end of the day. This is a big extended family type of school."

    "My daughter is in 1st grade and went to full day K, she love going to school and loves to learn. I feel we have been really lucky with the quality of teachers so far. All the teachers seem to really care. The Principal (Dr. Nelson) is excellent with the kids and greets them (by name) each morning and says goodbye each day. I hope grades 2 - 6 are as enjoyable for my daughter."
