    There is no other school in the area like this one! Murphy has found a haven in The Learning Center. Programs are offered here that I have only seen in expensive private schools in the city. The school uses a research-based academic schedule fun electives like garden-based learning and individual attention from experienced teachers like Ms. Gail the reading intervention specialist. I can see benefits in this school for an average student as well as kids with special needs and gifted children.

    My daughter is in Kindergarden & the school is AMAZING! Education is so personalized to each child's specific strengths & weaknesses. Students have access to daily one on one tutoring extensive arts programs STEM curriculum & family style lunches featuring local products. Ms. Rebecca & Ms. Shirley.... A+++ Obviously I wouldn't change a thing.

    I moved to Murphy NC for choice in education and I received that at the Learning Center. My daughter has been at the school for 4 years and is looking forward to her 5th.
