Murray offers an inclusive environment to strengthen our students’ academic, social and emotional development. We help build character for every student through our core values and active parent and community partners. A focus on science and the environment is enhanced by outdoor classroom spaces and a partnership with Wolf Ridge Environmental Learning Center, which sponsors an annual leadership retreat for seventh and eighth graders. We also make science fun by producing the largest one-day science fair in Minnesota. Accelerated classes offer high school credit in science, geometry, Spanish and French. Other opportunities range from instrumental music (band and orchestra) to theater and engineering. Our school has room to grow following the recent renovation of learning spaces, computer lab and cafeteria. Murray's extended day program allows students to explore interests and build skills in academics, arts, athletics, and technology.
