My school is great. I love the teachers, and this is a large school that you would enjoy if you get used to the confusing room numbers. We have an excellent staff team, and concentrated areas of studies that students can be involved in (eg. business, music, art, theater).

Great school. Have many classes that keep my child interested. A lot of clubs and events going on for seniors. Chocolate selling to help pay for senior dues is good thing too.

Murrow teaches students how to think critically; define their own morality and fosters a sense ...  Read more

This school is excellent for self-motivators and/or artists. The music and theater program is incredible. Even if you are not in these programs you are guaranteed to enjoy the talents of the school in the plays, concerts and SING performances. I attended in the late 90's and got a lot out of the self-sufficiency ...  Read more
