    "My son attended this school for two years in a row, 2nd and 3rd grade. I completely agree with the other parent when he/she that the school is over crowded and the teachers are over worked. My son had some problems with comprehension, and the teacher assured me at the beginning of the school year that she could help him with them. Come January, the same problems she said she could help him with, turned out to be problems that she put him out of her class for. My sons class had 26 students in it, in which only 5 were girls. I must say the way that the school handles children who need extra help is a disgrace. If the child does not perform to their expectations, than he/she is deemed as a child with behavioral issues. There is no in between at Murphy Candler.Out of the two years my soon was at that school I met with the school counselor several times to obtain information on outside help, and to get a copy of the curriculum. The counselor was never helpful, and she never followed up with any of the things she said she would do. Pulling my son out of that school was the best thing I've done. If your child needs extra help, for your child's sake, please explore some other options."

    "When my child was transferred to this school in 2007, her grades dropped drastically. At first I started to blame the school. After close evaluation, I realized that my daughter was depressed. She was missing her friends. I stayed involved with her education and teachers and proud to say she received a trophy for Academic Honor Roll all year round this year. She is a Girl Scout and a SafetyPatrol at Murphy Candler. While there are areas for improvement, I want to express my satisfaction in my child's education. Parents need to hold their children accountable and responsible for their success and not blame the school system for areas it has no control over."

    "This school is extremely over crowded. It shows in the attitude of the teachers. They are overworked, and the children are not challenged. There is no organization in anything. Everyone seems to be running around in circles, doing absolutely nothing."
