    "My son will be starting his third year at Murphey Candler and I have been very satisfied with the school. His teachers have been very knowledgeable and consistent. I am thankful for the extra curricula and social activities that are made available for the students and parents as well. Now, lets work on the after-school program. I don't want to pick my child up at 6:30 and he still has two hours worth of homework to complete."

    "Murphey Candler has the great potential to be an awesome school and assess to the community where it stands. The principal is nice but her niceness can also become her down fall. She needs to crack down on her staff. From the front to the back. I am writing this tip because I feel this school can be placed on the map as one of the greatest schools in the 2000 century. Thanks"

    "It saddens me to have to write this letter. Dr.Crawford Lewis's blue print for a premier Dekalb is based on 8 important pieces. This school fails miserably at 3 out of 8 of these pieces. Customer service, Unity,and Accountablity. I have been to the school on numerous occasions and found their customer service skills to be terrible. I have gone into the front office and not been addresed,beeen misguided, and spoken to in a rude and incaring manner. The school is in dire need of help in these areas."

    "I feel as though the school does not put the children education first I transfer my daughter to this school from a out of state school and the school did not provide me with no information at all as far as the work and expectations that they will like to see from the children at the very last minute I was told about the crct testing and that the need to pass this test to go to the fourth grade and I had to really work with my daughter to get her where she needed to be in a small period of time I'm never aware of test dates or what the test is going to be on until after she receives her test which is a F."

    "I am pleased with the overall education my daughter receives. The staff is warm and friendly. As far as instruction, you are able to go to any class on the same grade level and each teacher will be teaching the same thing. Homework is a given and know the students in the lower grades are bringing home books for homework instead of work sheets. The school offers chorus, Step Team, Georgraphy Bowl, Tutiorials in preparation for CRCT, Gifted Classes, Art and a Book Club(Page Turners) for grades 2-5. The After School program is great. The students are offered Cheerleading,variety of sports,and dance instruction as well as Homework assistance. I feel that we need more parent participation throughout the school. PTA meetings are only attended by the parents of the grade level that performs that night."
