    "Murdock Middle School offers Industry Certification for Microsoft Office which is an opportunity for students to have certification in programs that are usually reserved for adults in the workplace. As an IT Academy school, their technology program is outstanding! It definitely gives your kid a BIG headstart in their lives to be technology literate and MMS will provide that training with teachers who are excellent at their craft."

    "Our school is great. I used to go to a different school and Murdock is better. I don't wanna go to any other one. Some kids cause trouble at all schools but just stay away from them. My teachers help me do my work and learn. They have dances and ROS with Officer More and other good stuff. I got awards there and my mom and my sister came."

    "Murdock Middle is a very good school. The teachers are caring, provide feedback and the principal is willing to meet with and work with parents to help students succeed. My daughter was in band and the TAG program which provided challenges to her. Students from there have won awards and scholarships. There is a great band, a drama program, leadership classes, and the school is recognized for leading the way in technology. The Seven Habits are also taught and stressed there. Dress code is enforced, too. There is a parent SAC organization, but attendance at meetings is low. I've seen a few parents volunteer to help at the front office, with dances and plays, but they definitely need more parents to get involved. If parents would visit often and get involved, it would make a very good school even better."

    "There is terribly bully problem and their is no accountability. Kids have created their own gangs to protect themselves... and sadly girls are pregnant...very scary! This has nothing to due with Gov. Scott. The budget cuts are because of our local politicians that have not created an solid infrastructure...we have no economy, no jobs and now too many houses in foreclosure! Schools get funded mostly through property taxes, if home prices are lower, less taxes can be collected...if they are in foreclosure the house value decreases and again, less taxes the county can collect. The more people that move out of the area, less money is collected in sales taxes... It is ignorance that has caused this area to become distressed! It is important for the parents to vote for the commissioners who are pro-business and we must vote in school administrators who want to work with parents and students and begin a 'leadership program" in all the schools. It is already established in MPE and should be done countywide!!"

    "Horrible school! Just a place where kids are warehoused daily. Visit a charter school, and see the difference. The education is free in charter schools too. Every school has funding constraints, but Charlotte County schools cater to the poorly behaved children. My son attended this school eight years ago. My daughter attended this school last year and was pulled out to attend a charter school in Sarasota County. The teachers are so busy catering to kids that do not want to learn, and who are unruly. There are no field trips when my daughter and son attended this school. My daughter made straight A's never had homework, never opened a book, and was bored. Charter school has FCAT too, but the teachers can creatively teach, make it fun, and they kick unruly kids out. Charter school does not look at FCAT scores alone to determine classes, they make sure the kids are challenged. They have field trips too. Strict dress code with uniforms in charter school. Public schools need to learn from charter schools. Visit Murdock Middle, 90% poorly behaved children. When you visit that dump you will see why free education should be privilege, and not a right!"
