Our school, founded originally in 1888, offers a nurturing environment and programs that address the academic, social and emotional needs of students in grades 6-8. A focus on science and the environment is enhanced by partnerships with Wolf Ridge Environmental Learning Center and other local outdoor learning environments. Murray is proud to produce the largest one-day science fair in Minnesota. Accelerated classes offer high school credit in science, geometry, Spanish and French. Other fun opportunities range from instrumental music (band and orchestra) to theater and engineering. Murray's extended day program allows students to explore interests and build skills in academics, arts, athletics, and technology.
