John Murdy Elementary School Ratings & Reviews

December 17, 2015 Submitted by a community member
I was excited when I first had my son go to Murdy. After a few months of having him go there, I was very disappointed, especially after the first conference. The 2nd grade teacher my son had was not motivating or encouraging him. It seems to make him discouraged. I feel that she expects too much from a 7 yrs old. I also feel that she didn't take the time to understand her students, or try to find ways to motivate them. My son comes home frustrated because he doesn't know or understand how to do his work. Nowadays, teachers aren't trying to teach the kids.

I honestly LOVE this school. This has been my first year in Garden Grove District & I have to say, I'm enjoying my time. I love the teachers here. They're so kind & helpful! One thing I wish they would change though is the playground for grades 1-6. As a student, I was very disappointed when I first saw it. I personally am OK with the principal, she is strict yet kind. The events are so fun here! We have Winter Wonderland & Spring Fling which is awesome! This year, we have recently come up with a fundraiser called the Candy Dance Raffle, and the whole school participates.

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 daily uniform of tight pants and shirts. Since the new principal came to this school alot of great teachers have left or have been replaced.
