    "I honestly LOVE this school. This has been my first year in Garden Grove District & I have to say, I'm enjoying my time. I love the teachers here. They're so kind & helpful! One thing I wish they would change though is the playground for grades 1-6. As a student, I was very disappointed when I first saw it. I personally am OK with the principal, she is strict yet kind. The events are so fun here! We have Winter Wonderland & Spring Fling which is awesome! This year, we have recently come up with a fundraiser called the Candy Dance Raffle, and the whole school participates."

    "90% of the teachers at this school are great, but positive leadership is lacking and the principal needs to get off her high horse and stop acting like a diva. She does not participate in any school events like dressing up for Halloween, Tet festival or anything that would require her to give up her daily uniform of tight pants and shirts. Since the new principal came to this school alot of great teachers have left or have been replaced."

    "Absolutely no doubt! John Murdy Elementary school is a happy place for my kid. The Principal is a wonderful person and all teachers and staffs are so well loved, dedicated, and well trained at their jobs. I am very happy dropping off my son there every morning knowing that he will be having a great time learning and playing. Yes, I know because I ask him every day about school. I think we all want our children to get the best of everything. The PTO is designed to get parents involved with school and find the best way to make it better. Our children's education is also our jobs, not just school alone. The more we get involved, the better our children are doing. For last few years, the economy is not going well, and all schools experienced heavy cut from their budgets. I bet that had very negative effects on how school manage their programs as well as maintenance. However, I have to say this school has been doing great despite all that hardship. What else can you expect? Even in a hard time like this, this school has managed to do very well. Check the scores! Great jobs! I love this school because my kid is very happy learning here. Everyday! :)"
