    "I mostly love the program at KM but wish the retention and increased pay of good teachers and principals could become a higher priority with the school board. I do NOT like: i). The school board for CC County does not tell parents about hiring/firing/retention/placements and we are left completely in the dark even if we attend the school board meetings, ii). the IB curriculum is an incomprehensible mystery to me, especially the stuff in 6th grade, iii). the teachers seem overwhelmed with work and rarely teach any science --the parents had to put on the science fair! I DO like: i). the gifted program is taught in the regular classroom, ii). if a child goes out for sports--by God, they GET to play sports. The kids are given a place on the team no matter what their skills, iii). the after-school activity bus. Not having pick up the kids after practice? Priceless., iv). the extra-curricular activities are taught by motivated & charismatic teachers. My kid can choose from Spanish, art, PE, band, or computer class, v). The sheer variety of special trips or school activities. Cal-Wood camp, Crow Canyon Archeology Camp, rafting with G.O.A.L.S organization, or going to Young Ameritowne."

    "Love it! Can't say enough positive things about KM! My children's teachers are amazing! My children love their school! The school is continuing to make improvements and is doing a great job engaging parents. To me, that's all that matters!"

    "If anyone did post double, it's because they are incredibly angry and frustrated. KM has lost more than 20 families to other local schools RIGHT NOW because KM's academics, professionalism, safety and SPED are severely lacking. They are leaving in ALL grades. PTA members have pulled their kids. The reputation this school has in the broader Evergreen community is laughable and sad at the same time. To blame the CC board for KM's problems is plain wrong - it comes down to individual teacher and admin choices, period. To blame previous posts on the *same* person is a typical method KM and supporters use to avoid facing problems head on. "It's so-and-so dividing the school" ... as if any single parent could do that! Juvenile fiction, period. I hope others reading this page realize that most posts here are quite truthful (good or bad) and that others are a desperate effort to plug holes in the dam wall. You can see that KM supporters don t like the truth told about the school. It doesn't matter. Parents who know the truth are gone. Instead of worrying about the negative truth being told, KM should focus on creating a new truth where all the stories will be positive."

    "Went to my Childrens school today to drop off all the school supply for this year, great to see everyone! My kids are soo exited to start school tomorrow and I have nothing but good things to say. Wonderful staff my kids are happy and they all do wonderful in school so far. Yes there could be improvements, but what school today doesn't? As long as my children LOVE school and do wonderful, what more could I ask for?"

    "I wasn't going to post a review, but I feel I should. I know at leat six different people personally that have posted reviews that reflect their poor experience at King Murphy. (I am surprised that one would make an accusation that the posts are all a single individual.) My experience was much the same as prior posts. We came in and loved the school. Over the years things changed and we left frustrated and disappointed. I tried to address my concerns and was made to feel like I was a problem parent. Nothing ever got resolved. Once we left I became aware of the academic failings when my children were significantly behind (our frustration was more supervision and behavior of mean kids. I had no idea the academics were so poor until our new school was appalled by how far behind my kids were). Judging by the influx of King Murphy kids into other local schools, I am surprised to see that they are still trying to blame this on an isolated bad egg parent."
