    "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."

    "The reality is that the last few negative reviews have been posted by the same vindictive parent that would rather grind an ax than focus on what is better for the school. KM is still a great school with committed teachers, administration and parents. Yes, the administration could be more effective if the board would allow them; Teachers could be more effective if the parents were more involved (as a whole and true for all schools). Nonetheless KM is a great school which excels at student growth in a wholesome environment. This is a gem of an elementary school that has gone though some major staff changes in the last couple of years that have ruffled the feathers of the change adverse. If you can look past the knitting circle's gossip and focus on the kids and the curriculum you will be hard pressed to find a better K-6 school in the area and that is really saying something in the Evergreen area."

    "King-Murphy is THE SCHOOL where my children of a small community will attend and grow. I AM an involved and informed parent. If I have questions about my student's growth or how I can help, I find out. If I need more specifics, I ask. Communication is a 2-way street. When I ask a question, I get a respectful answer. If I have a problem, I am respectfully listened to. Let's be real, I am not always going to get my way, that's life, but I can ask. I respect the people who are in the position to make the tough choices. The Principal, Teachers, and Staff at the school are SO invested in what they do! If they weren't, they wouldn't live or work in our community. What benefit would it have for them? These folks are our neighbors, our friends, and the people who will give our children the wings to fly! Let's support them as professionals and offer them the dignity and patience to persevere, act, and grow towards what seem to be some insurmountable odds in education today. YES, we need to grow as a school and as a community. I will help, will you? Be an active participant, join the PTA. See the passion for learning first hand and how hard our school works for it daily."
