    "I was so surprised to see that someone had removed my honest and sad review of KM. I am aware that there are people who either are very loyal to KM or they are just too ignorant to see that KM quality has gone from "outstanding" to terrible as is noted in the great school score of a "6" when it was a "10" when my children began their experience here. Many MEAN teachers, not strict, but demeaning -pinching children or saying they will hit them. To clarify "just joking" doesn't make it okay. No wonder the kids are becoming such bullies at KM! To further this process is the extremely limited staff at recess. The children are basically on their own out there and that is where all of the major self esteem issues take place. The curriculum is outdated. The vast majority of the teachers are completely or vaguely experienced. They have no one to turn to as the principal was the 6th grade teacher and she has NO field experience, so she is completely in over her head. We are completely dissatisfied with the new KM after 2 teachers were fired last year with no logical reasoning. The students are way below par for the evergreen community we live in. This is truly a terrible school!"

    "What matters most for me as a parent of a child at King-Murphy Elementary school is that my child really likes school! His confidence is boosted every day despite some learning challenges, and he is loved and supported tremendously by his teachers. In the 4 years that my child has been at the school, he has had nothing but possitive experiences with, in my opinion, very qualified caring teachers, Yes, the school has experienced it's ups and downs in the past few years, but truly is "the grass greener on the other side"? We as parents always need to be our child's advocate. For any issues I may have had with King-Murphy, they have always been addressed well by both the principal and the teachers. I am very content with the intimate class room sizes, the curriculum, and the support at the school. Thumbs up to King-Murphy!"

    "I am so disappointed with the way that this administrations has handled each and every issue I (and other parents) have brought to her attention all year! The principal listens and attempts to placate me (and others) with nods of understanding and smiles while she does nothing to resolve anything, ever! I do not understand how things are expected to improve. They brush everything off as though negative issues (that are unique to King Murphy) are things that occur at every school. They aren't. Get the bullying under control, make it a safe campus, and get the academics back on track. My kids will not suffer for your incompetence."

    "My family just moved to the Evergreen. We looked into several schools, and settled on King Murphy. There has not been a day we have second guessed our choice. King Murphy is an amazing school. The staff and student body are wonderful. They are caring, kind, thoughtful and have truly welcomed my girls. My young children are surrounded by caring people who look out for their needs, and love coming to school. The teachers work hard, and truly pay attention to the individual needs of the students. The small classroom size is wonderful. My daughter, who performs at a high academic level is challenged by the IB program. She has grown this year in her confidence, academics and love for learning. My youngest in pre-K cannot WAIT to start Kindergarten next year. The principal is approachable, and has listened attentively to concerns and complements about the school. As parents our perspective is welcome, our concerns are addressed, and we are truly cared about. I feel everyone works together to constantly improve, reflect and strive to be the best. I have loved our year at King Murphy, and am so thankful for all that it has provided my two young children."

    "As a mom with three children in this school, I am so proud of the way they have handled themselves, especially in the past year. Change is not always easy, yet this school has handled it with grace and a take charge attitude. All of the teachers and the administration go the extra mile to help all of their children. I continue to be thankful for this wonderful learning environment, in which my children are excelling!"
