Murphy High School Ratings & Reviews

March 11, 2018 Submitted by a teacher
While this school offers some great opportunities such as Early College through the University of Alabama, IB programs, and AP programs it also has a lot of environmental factors to combat. The classes are overcrowded, the students who need special learning modifications aren’t receiving them, and the teachers are not sufficiently supported. This year there is a new principal who seems to be more active in implementing consequences for bad behavior. There are fights every week, it is situated in an area where most households are below poverty levels and there isn’t much support at home. The students enrolled in the advanced classes will graduate equipped to face adulthood, those in standard classes will not fail because the county superintendent doesn’t allow failures. Unfortunately this is turning out high school graduates who can’t function well in society.

Outstanding! My grandchild just finished his Freshman year!!! The art and theater program are amazing. Musical chorus and band are the highest rated in the state!

Murphy could be a great school with better leadership. The principal and counselors will not respond to calls or emails from parents. They have several great AP teachers that put alot of time in with their students. Unfortunately, the administration does not support them in disciplining the students and maintaining a good learning environment. There are way too many fights. The diversity of the students is an asset and will help students later in life. Murphy has a beautiful campas dispite the tornado repairs that are taking an extreme amount of time. If you are looking for scholarship money for college, you are on your own. The students get little or no guidance in this area.

Fantastic School, The panther pride and sense of family among the students and faculty are like no other school experience. My family has been a part of this school since the days of Barton Academy and now I am a teacher with 2 students who attend this school. As a parent, former student and now a teacher, I wouldn't send my children anywhere else!!!! I have been apart of the AP and IB experience, and I can say that the programs truly prepare your child for the real world and the college experience. The diversity of students...Asian, Russian, Indian, White/Black as well as income differences...its a small world with unique experiences which unite and bond everyone together.

We took our son out of our district just to attend the IB program here. It was the worst thing we ever did to him. No need to bore you with details. Let me just summarize by saying this school is not a school but a big juvenile detention center, and the IB program is basically a pathetic attempt at beautification. The administration is so overwhelmed that they cannot be bothered with the needs of students who are NOT getting into trouble. There are a few good teachers, but not enough to make it worthwhile. Don't waste a single day of your child's youth, as we had. Avoid this school at all costs.
