Murchison Middle School

Murchison Middle School begins each student’s secondary experience with a focus on language development, cultural perspectives, and global awareness. High academic expectations are the standard for all students, and advanced Pre-AP classes and high school credit courses provide the rigor for students who pursue higher level achievement. The school will undergo Phase 1 of a full modernization, including a 6th grade addition, library and administration relocation, annex roofing, and bus loop addition.
