    "This school is horrible. I would take whatever measures you can to avoid sending your children to this school. I pulled my children out of the school because it was ruining them (smart, kind, straight A students). My child said to me, "I think they want the kids to be bad because they are mean to even the good kids." The principal of this school is an incompetent leader, he has no social skills, he is awkward with the students, and he is not moving this school in forward. There are teachers who should not be allowed to come in contact with children working at this school. Suffice to say, this school is an embarrassment to this community. Fix it or close it! Unfortunately, I do not have enough room to share with you the horrible experience we had at this school. It is unbelieveable what happens at this school. When we first started at this school, I heard people complain and said to myself that it was just the people with bad kids complaining. I quickly found out quite the opposite. I wish I could give this school no stars because it doesn't even deserve one. There are some good teachers but statistically, you aren't likely to get one of them."

    "It is known throughout Peters that McMurray Elementary is the one downside to Peters Twp education. It is overcrowded and there is a lack of leadership from the Principal. If I had to sum the school up in one word it would be 'chaos'. From the front office staff being unfriendly, to the teachers being unprofessional, to the students being out of control- this school needs improvement. I know families who have even resorted to home schooling after being frustrated with this school. They seem resistant to change because the community has had the same complaints for years now."

    "Parents all agree with each other in this town...K-3 schools are excellent. Then it is a matter of enduring a bad school for 3 years until middle school. I have learned that my son's 5th grade teacher was locking him and others in a closet as a disciplinary technique. And after one parent complained, she was still allowed to continue teaching our children. We were not told any of this but she negotiated a "forced retirement". Children who had this teacher suffered from depression & learning issues. I'm considering legal actions. My son suffers from PTSD"

    "McMurray is a good school. The school is in excellent shape and offers good after-school programs. As with any school there are excellent teachers and some not so excellent. Parents play a large role and there is a very active PTA. They do have some issues with bullying that the administration does not want to address. The overall feeling is that they want to sweep it under the rug until and then let the next school deal with the problem. This year they will have a new Principal, so it will be interesting to see if the school changes its disciplinary weaknesses. Overall 4 out of 5 stars."
