90% of the teachers at this school are great, but positive leadership is lacking and the principal needs to get off her high horse and stop acting like a diva. She does not participate in any school events like dressing up for Halloween, Tet festival or anything that would require her to give up her ...  Read more

The previous reviewer must have an axe to grind with the principal. My experience with the principal has been very positive. She is polite, respectful, and fair.

I currently have 2 children that go to school here. They will not be returning this fall. The current principal is horrible. She is very unprofessional and not a good leader. She walks around with an attitude and a "I am better than everyone" complex. She does not treat the teachers or the students ...  Read more

Murdy has devoted teachers who really want their students to succeed. However, parents must also get involved in their children's studies. It takes a village! I'm very lucky to live in a neighborhood with such a good school!
