    "My child attended this wonderful school for all 9 years, K-8 grade. He graduated this past June and was accepted into; Mt. Carmel, Brooks College Prep & Lincoln Park. He decided to attend to, Brooks College Prep (an Selective Enrollment high school) ! He did well at Murray and is excelling at Brooks now and that is due to the wonderful foundation he received at Murray. The upper grades teachings must be good as well since all the 8th grade grads were accepted to selective enrollment high schools and other top high schools,e including privates."

    "Murray Language Academy is one of the best schools for students in grades pre-k to 4th, and then it becomes very problematic. The principal has made some questionable choices for faculty in the upper levels and not provided adequate mentoring for new faculty. Very Very disappointing."

    "We have been at Murray from Kindergarten through 8th grade now. Murray is a wonderful family involved and family orientated school. Murray keeps you informed about everything going on in and out of the school. Murray has strived to offer the best education possible to ensure our kids are successful and prepared for onward movement. Like most schools, Murray has suffered due to budget constraints and has to cut back on educational tools and events. Although this is our last year at Murray, I would love to see such a dedicated school rewarded before we leave. "We are Murray and we are one!!""

    "Murray continues to improve. For starters, the 2011-12 ISAT composite rose from 88.9% to 90.2%, awarding the school a Level 1 rating of Excellence based on the current CPS Performance policy. (Much can be said constructively about the teaching community and its commitment to grow through improved instructional practices and curriculum improvements) Parent involvement has increased. 8th grade graduates were selected to CPS Selective high schools. (This was the first graduating class in 9 years) Murray was selected for a Jeep Commercial, showcasing its beautiful building. The school has received many capital improvements, including a technology infrastructure update. The World Language department has strong leadership. Misconducts have waned due to a new Behavior System of CHAMPS."
