At Martin Murphy, staff and students know the effort it takes to reach their goals. That is why Martin Murphy is dedicated, in partnership with parents and the community, to constructing a rigorous learning environment where students are empowered to achieve, use creative and critical thinking skills,develop a global perspective and to model the core values of respect, responsibility, and safety.
Because students who experience a caring and nurturing environment are more likely to succeed and thrive academically, we are consistent in our implementation of Restorative Justice practices and Positive Behavior Interventions and Supports on campus. As a result, our students are better equipped to develop into kind, safe, responsible, and contributing members of society.
Murphy staff is dedicated to providing students with the resources and support they need to reach their academic goals. Interdisciplinary teams are in place to serve the needs of our students and to provide a personal experience for each child in these formative years. The teams focus on building relationships, connecting concepts and skills across the curriculum, establishing common expectations, and working together to communicate effectively with parents. High expectations and excellence are top priorities at Martin Murphy,and we strive for each student to put forth maximum effort in their quest to become successful learners.
Each one of our classrooms is equipped with interactive whiteboards and Chromebooks that help increase student engagement,academic rigor, content mastery, and 21st-Century skills. All 7th and 8th-grade students are assigned a Chromebook for their use as a student of Martin Murphy. In addition, every 6th-grade classroom contains a fully stocked Chromebook cart.
