    "Let's call Murray Middle School what it really is: a segregated school. There are two populations here: The Cambridge/Arts group and the mainstream. You can guess which group is 95% white and which one is mostly minorities. The school administration and teachers go to great lengths to isolate and 'protect' the Cambridge/Arts kids, most of whom are out of zone and would not be there otherwise. The kids on the mainstream halls are largely left to fend for themselves from the typical ills of an inner-city low income school. As a parent, you may be perfectly fine with this arrangement, especially if your child is in the 'right group.' Personally, I find this to be an unhealthy setup which breeds class struggles unnecessarily."

    "Murray is amazing. My son is in the Cambridge program and his teachers, staff and the principal are all fantastic. Any reviews saying that Murray is in a "dangerous" part of town are completely blown out of proportion and may, sadly, have to do with the fact that Murray has a pretty even mix of black and white children. Also, Has anyone noticed all of the Sheriffs in St. Augustine? They are at EVERY school. I feel that my son is completely safe and thriving at Murray. I wouldn't choose another school for him. Perhaps those that don't like it need to send their children to one of those segregated private schools. Yuk!"

    "This school is in the worst area of town, and the most dangerous. Murray is only good if your child is in a gifted program, or Avid. The Dean needs to be replaced with someone who can bring discipline and order to the students. These kids need a firmer hand. The P.E department is horrible. I have nothing good to say about this school."

    "I am glad that there is a school like R J Murray Middle here in St. Johns County. The Gifted faculty is wonderful and I couldn't imagine my son going anywhere else. He is in the 6th grade this year and making his way through the transition. I am very impressed with the SJCCA program as well. No wonder this school is an 'A' school!"
