I am a student at William B. Murrah High School located in central Jackson area. The school is an ideal school for students aiming to strenghten their career opportunities in the metro-area. The school offers a variety of extracurricular activities that aid in providing science and mathematical preparation for potential jobs that will require a rigorous background in these subjects.I believe the teachers are very alert and helpful when striving to teach individuals and keep on task. I am very happy to be part of a strong program.Posted by a student on 1/9/2012

As a student at Murrah High School, i feel that it is has not met the academic standards that I expected. This use to be a level five school and in the course of two or three years we have fallen into the academic watch category. The teachers in subject area classes have stopped teaching meanwhile the students are suffering. Other than that Murrah is a friendly school that pretty much excepts anybody!Posted by a student on 4/20/2011

4/10GreatSchools RatingParent Rating AverageThe principal is over emotional and only cares about appearing as the savior. I did all I could to help my son succeed in school with an established IEP and they still let him fail 2nd grade. He was given an award for most improved in the area that had the failing grade and yet they still tried to convince me he should be held back. The principal was more concerned about hurting the teacher's feelings than my son's education and self esteem. I had several meetings with several staff members, and the teacher throughout the school year and was told he was doing just fine. When this was obviously not the case, I had another meeting with the teacher and she basically told me there isn't anything I could really do to help get his grade up and she said this in the middle of the school year. They could not explain to how to better help my child but expected your kids to just magically learn the material without learning from their mistakes. If you could care less about your child's education and simply need a babysitter with activities then this is the school for you.Other Review5y ago

N/AGreatSchools RatingParent Rating AverageMy son has done well since starting Kindergarten at Pearl Lower Elementary. I was worried that he would fall behind because he was not reading when he started Kindergarten, but he just finished 1st grade and he is on a 3rd grade reading level. He also got the highest AR score in his class for the year. I am very pleased with the teaching and the staff.Parent Review5y ago
