    "Education is not bad, but the morale is low. My daughter came from a private school for preschool where it seemed like the teachers and staff were more genuine in caring about the students well-being and education. My daughter started kindergarten this school year at Murphy Ranch, and it has been nothing but problems. There was a little boy who was consistently picking on my daughter and pulling chairs from under her during class time; I suppose the teacher did what she could by moving him. Then I come to find out that a little girl in her class is bullying her on the playground during recess. After communicating my concerns to the teachers and staff, it seems they could care less about the well being of the children. They care more about high test scores. It's a shame that the elementary school is such a disappointment since we pay a lot for property taxes in order to live in a nicer neighborhood, Friendly Hills. Considering taking my child out and putting her back in private school."

    "This is the year that may change this schools high test scores. This year all children kinder to 3rd grade will be in a 30:1 classroom!!!! I was disappointed to enroll my 5 year old to this school and find that he is crammed in a bungalow with 30 kids!!!!! One teacher cannot properly teach soooo many kids! In South Los Angeles, kinder to 3 rd grade are still 20:1. I might as well enroll my child into a school in LA. Also, don't let the high scores make your decision, visit the school first. You will see a yellow playground for childen to play in, only one slide and only two swings for 90 kinder kids to share during recess!!!!!! It is a very ugly playground and they cram 30 kids into a bungalow. Consider private school!"

    "We have 3 children who have attended and are attending Murphy Ranch these past six years. In the past, the Murphy Ranch set the standard for other elementary schools in the area, which in turn resulted in a friendly competition to be the best. Now, not only has Murphy Ranch continued to maintained great standardized test scores but other schools in the area are also on par. You can't go wrong with any of the schools in the East Whittier school district, that's why property values have been maintained and out of district permitees are up. Murphy Ranch has a caring Prinicpal and she is dedicated to wanting to do what is best for the student and teachers. Currently, she is spear heading efforts to make Smart boards available to her students for cutting edge advance instruction. The PTA at the school is very active and supports the efforts of the principal and teachers. Finally, there has been a transition in great teachers leaving to retirement, however, there there still is a balance of experienced 'Master' degreed teachers with newer advanced degreed teachers which in turn lends for a smooth transition reflective also of the surrounding community. Do not be misled by the 'haters' ."

    "I just had to reply to the most recent posting. In my opinion the morale at the school has improved significantly in the past few years due to the caring commitment of our principal and the willingness of the staff to try new strategies. Despite the pressure of constantly needing to improve test scores while dealing with a dwindling budget, Murphy Ranch provides a positive atmosphere for working and learning."
