    "This is more difficult to write than I anticipated. I used to be one of the parents that would defend this school as I see on the posts below. I have loved this school, the teachers, the kids. I love the stunning location. We have stood by Clear Creek and King Murphy over the past few (very difficult) years, even at times when we disagreed with decisions being made. We had committed to standing with King Murphy while it rebounded from these tough times, but I can no longer put my children's academic success behind my loyalty. It's not fair to my kids. The fact is the students at King Murphy aren't on par academically with their peers attending other local schools. There are increasingly worrisome behavioral and supervision issues that continue and escalate with the same kids year after year. There is a tense atmosphere that is apparent between the parents and the teachers. It is undeniable that this isn t the same King Murphy that I knew and loved."

    "Caring teachers and staff, smart IB curriculum, small class sizes - King Murphy is a wonderful school and my 2 children have thrived in this environment. The teachers are dedicated and involved - I feel that they truly care and want to help each child be the best he or she can be. The administration is new, but I feel they are on the right track by making good decisions for King-Murphy and the community."

    "I love this school, teachers and staff. You can be as involved as you want, Or not at all!! Most important part, my children loves the school. As I mentioned earlier you can be as involved as you would like and when any issues has occurred I have had no problem communicating with the principal!"

    "I love our little school in the mountains! We have been at this school since my now 9th grader was in preschool. Yes, I've seen some changes and yes we've had some troubled waters recently, but what school doesn't? My younger son is a current student at KM and is not having the best year, but he is excelling, learning and becoming a well rounded student. Not every year is a good one, we can't like EVERY teacher, our kids struggle and excel differently, but I know I can go into this school each and every day and feel welcomed! The special ed dept. does what they can with a limited budget. No, they do not have a gifted & talented program, but my son is in a higher math level and has more challenging homework on a daily basis. Sometimes I wonder if the teachers are overwhelmed with the extra curriculum that comes with IB? Does it really matter that our kids are in a IB school? "IF" they continue with the IB program, that means they will have to drive down to Denver for high school. I feel like KM as ALWAYS been a GREAT school. I've weathered the highs and the lows and I feel my children have had a great education at KM! I would highly recommend this school!!!"

    "AWESOME School! King-Murphy is the only International Baccalaureate World School in the area, and makes KM a unique gem among the schools in Evergreen. We live in Jeffco and choose to send our kids to King-Murphy because of the small class sizes, the dedicated and invested teachers, staff, and principal. We love the school's focus on helping students be learners who can ask questions and find answers, as well as building character through the IB methods. Yes, the school and district have gone through several major changes in the last two years, but has resiliently and amazingly kept the focus of what is in the student's best interests at heart; learning! We have never felt that our kids were at any time put in an unsafe situation at school. From our point of view, there is more supervision, communication, and attention paid to safety procedures now than there ever was when our oldest was in K-2. Personnally, our kids have flourished in King-Murphy's welcoming and caring environment and they love their teachers, principal, classmates, and school! We are proud to be King-Murphy Eagles and a part of the Clear Creek School District!"
