My son is a transfer student, in his sophomore year. The previous years of his education were at our local school district, there is no comparison. My son is thriving and we couldn't be happier with the faculty, the other students, the quality of education and the environment of the school. We are so impressed with the school, it really feels like a big family on campus. The staff truly wants your child to succeed. My son is being challenged, as a high honors student. He made the decision to transfer, and he's thriving and happy at Archbishop Murphy High.
