Murphy High School Reviews

By a Parent on

Taking our son out of our own district just to attend the IB program here is one of the worst decisions of our lives. This is not a school; it's a huge juvenile detention center, with the IB program as a pathetic attempt at beautification. The administration is so overwhelmed that it cannot be bothered with the needs of students who are NOT getting into trouble. The Principal himself has sent his own children to a different public high school.
