The city of Murphy does not have a school district. Residents in Murphy will either attend Plano ISD or Wylie ISD based on their home locations.
The Plano ISD is a large (Class 5A) school district and provides many opportunities for their students. The residents in Murphy who attend PISD schools will eventually feed into Plano East Senior High School where the graduating class is approximately 1200-1400 kids each year. There are a total of 3 Senior High Schools in Plano ISD. The schools run like this:
Elementary = K - 5th
Middle School = 6th - 8th
High School = 9th - 10th
Senior High School = 11th - 12th
The Wylie ISD is slightly smaller (Class 4A) school district and provided more of a "community" or "small town" feeling. There are only 2 High Schools in the Wylie ISD, and the newer high school has only been open 5 years or so. The schools run like this:
Elementary = PreK - 4th
Intermediate School = 5th - 6th
Junior High School = 7th - 8th
High School = 9th - 12th
BOTH school districts are highly desirable and highly rated by the Texas Education Agency. This is one of the reasons that Murphy is in such high-demand. The schools, parks, and lifestyle opporunities for residents in Murphy is second to none. You have the best of both worlds when you live in Murphy.
