    "this school is lacking resources-financial, intellectual, experiential. The teachers seem to be lacking in enthusiasm and pride. The principle does not follow through. Its reputation is dated. I agree playground supervision is inadequate and character building opportunities are missed. I do not recommend this school and my children will not be returning."

    "Another one bites the dust. Yes, another superintendent has come and gone. While we wait for the academic improvement and stability to return to our school, the superintendent is fired. I don't know much about him or the circumstances that caused his dismissal (I've heard ALL the usual slanderous rumors), but I do know that this county and King Murphy have a major problem. There is no leadership, or maybe everyone wants to lead and that's what is causing the chaos. Teachers versus parents, teachers versus the superintendernt, parents versus parents, school board versus superintendent and on and on and on. The schools are in a decline academically. King Murphy (my child's school) frustrates me to no end. Rumors abound, academics decline, kids fight, parents fuss. I for one am sick of it! In the constant drama of the county, nothing is able to improve and I suppose nothing will when everyone seems to think they should fight everyone all the time. The kids are suffering and it appears it will continue. But my kid will not be returning. Good luck King Murphy and all of Clear Creek. You've lost another family."

    "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 The curriculum is outdated.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."
