Murphy Candler Elementary School Ratings & Reviews

September 15, 2016 Submitted by a parent
My daughter went to this school for one year until I was able to try for another school via School Choice. Her 2nd grade teacher Ms. Robinson was wonderful. Even Principal Smith was wonderful. However, the amount of behaviors in my child's class and the school period caused my child emotional problems. She is an A+ student, but hated going to school, and cried every day because of bullying and students that had the wrong placement. There were a few teachers and staff that were very professional and wonderful, however, I've seen teacher yell and scream at the children and even yank their arms. I see what the principal is trying to do, but if the children had proper placement in the classrooms, and it weren't overcrowded ( there were 38 students in my child's class with 2 teachers) it has the potential to improve.

My son attended this school for two years in a row, 2nd and 3rd grade. I completely agree with the other parent when he/she that the school is over crowded and the teachers are over worked. My son had some problems with comprehension, and the teacher assured me at the beginning of the school year that she could help him with them. Come January, the same problems she said she could help him with, turned out to be problems that she put him out of her class for. My sons class had 26 students in it, in which only 5 were girls. I must say the way that the school handles children who need extra help is a disgrace. If the child does not perform to their expectations, than he/she is deemed as a child with behavioral issues. There is no in between at Murphy Candler.Out of the two years my soon was at that school I met with the school counselor several times to obtain information on outside help, and to get a copy of the curriculum. The counselor was never helpful, and she never followed up with any of the things she said she would do. Pulling my son out of that school was the best thing I've done. If your child needs extra help, for your child's sake, please explore some other options.

This school is extremely over crowded. It shows in the attitude of the teachers. They are overworked, and the children are not challenged. There is no organization in anything. Everyone seems to be running around in circles, doing absolutely nothing.
