6/12/2010teacherI am thrilled to find this website and that Murray is listed here! I am a founding member of Murray, which was started in 1988. In our 22nd year of existence, we are still going strong. Our school is the world's first Glasser Quality Public High School. We are based on Dr. William Glasser's Choice Theory, Reality Therapy, and Lead Management. This means that students choose to come to our school. We are a very successful state charter school, with a population of only 110 students. At Murray students and teachers work together on all aspects of school governance. For instance, there is a student committee who makes recommendations to the admissions committee for new students and there are students on the principal search committee (our wonderful principal is retiring this summer). Murray is based on respect and we refuse to accept failure. Murray students and teachers love each other.
4/11/2009parentThe student/teacher ratio allows the teachers to get to know the students' individual strengths & weaknesses very quickly. They have a lot of respect for the students & I've seen my child blossom under this innovative teaching style. My child doesn't feel treated like cattle & is engaged in school. Grades, motivation & morale are UP! Murray has they highest SOL scores in Albemarle Co. & it's one of the best kept secrets.
2/26/2009studentNothing made me happier than to be able to say i came from a school like Murray. There is something to be said for the way the teachers would handle us and our different learning needs and interests. I can truly say I'm proud to have been a student at Murray High School.
