    My daughter goes to the school here. She is immensely motivated to study here. The teachers coach the kids very well. She gets periodic assignments that challenges her understanding on every subject. The principal is an wonderful person and she shapes up the school with dedication sincerety and fantastic leadership.

    I would like to echo the remarks of the last parent and we could not be happier with the quality of the education and environment that Kenneth Murphy provides. I think it starts from the Principle and trickles down. The teachers are great and yes including gym and music.
