    "I will be leaving Murphy after this school year, and I hate the fact that I am overly excited to. The teachers are very good, no teachers come to mind when I think of how many aren't as good. The students here, are quite extreme. Either, extremely uninterested, or overly interested. Only a small percentage of the student body is actually interested. The principal, though, really needs to realize that she is the principal at a middle school. Kids won't listen. Kids rebel. And she doesn't understand the fact that she can't be unflexible. Middle school is all about being open minded and flexible with the student body. The principal just is not willing to bend her ideas so that both sides are somewhat happy. I believe adults that work with middle school kids have to be understanding. Which, the teachers grasp that fact. But some people don't."

    "It's a shame that a disgruntled few get such a high profile place to offer their biased vent. I've found that the teachers and administration at Murphy bend over backwards for their kids. I've also found them to be very fair with the tough love needed to raise young teens and I appreciate their help. I too have run into the problem of them not delivering messages, but once they pointed out the policy in the student rules and they explained the math of running personal messages to 700 kids, it made sense. My reason was urgent to me, but not really an emergency."

    "The administration is so horrible at this school. We have left messages at the school that have went unanswered. The office staff seems very reluctant to help relay messages to students. I've experienced this first-hand, and have also met other parents with the same experience. We do like the resource teachers here, and some of the teachers have been really good. We love the teacherease.com that most of the teachers seem to be using, so that parents have a clear idea of the day-today progress of their child."
