This is a great school! The principal is very enthusiastic and does all possible to achieve a positive and safe learning environment. Class size is high but I'm not sure if that is a Murphy Ranch or East Whittier School District issue. We have had great experiences with all the teachers and my daughters love it there.

We have been at Murphy Ranch since Kinder we just love the school. The principal is wonderful she really listens to parents works on making sure children feel safe. Teachers are caring and are always willing to help where they can. The PTA seems to work hand in hand with the principal. Lots of parent involvement . We had a choice between private school or public this school has a private school feel. The only negative is the Kinder play area seems a bit small for the amount of kids.

Education is not bad, but the morale is low. My daughter came from a private school for preschool where it seemed like the teachers and staff were more genuine in caring about the students well-being and education. My daughter started kindergarten this school year at Murphy Ranch, and it has been nothing but problems. There was a little boy who was consistently picking on my daughter and pulling chairs from under her during class time; I suppose the teacher did what she could by moving him. Then I come to find out that a little girl in her class is bullying her on the playground during recess. After communicating my concerns to the teachers and staff, it seems they could care less about the well being of the children. They care more about high test scores. It's a shame that the elementary school is such a disappointment since we pay a lot for property taxes in order to live in a nicer neighborhood, Friendly Hills. Considering taking my child out and putting her back in private school.

This is the year that may change this schools high test scores. This year all children kinder to 3rd grade will be in a 30:1 classroom!!!! I was disappointed to enroll my 5 year old to this school and find that he is crammed in a bungalow with 30 kids!!!!! One teacher cannot properly teach soooo many kids! In South Los Angeles, kinder to 3 rd grade are still 20:1. I might as well enroll my child into a school in LA. Also, don't let the high scores make your decision, visit the school first. You will see a yellow playground for childen to play in, only one slide and only two swings for 90 kinder kids to share during recess!!!!!! It is a very ugly playground and they cram 30 kids into a bungalow. Consider private school!
