    I moved my children to Muraski from another school in the district. After yrs of frustration and disappointments with the other school Muraski has been amazing. My children LOVE school again. Their teachers really care about them each as individuals and work hard to make sure they and all their peers are all doing their best. The moment there is any concern from any of them I receive a note or a phone call. I had the best 504 meeting of their school careers here! After giving the teachers time to get to know my kids I emailed the principal requesting team meetings. In the previous school it would take a clear paper trail just to get a call back. The principal here emailed me back not even ten minutes after I emailed her she called me that afternoon and informed me that she had already met with the teachers and I could meet with her two days later after conferences to review 504's on all of my children who needed them.They were excellent and I left with happy tears in my eyes. Due to bullying at the other school one of my children started this yr w K12 and soon switched to Muraski due to how happy her siblings were.She is with kids her age and confident! Warm happy environment!

    Muraski Elementary School a tremendous school of dedicated individuals which includes the teachers principal support staff and parents.

    I had one or two children at Muraski for the last 8 years. Teachers and staff are competent devoted caring and friendly. PTA is top-notch actively sponsoring many programs that enrich students as well as families. Teachers & parents enjoy an unusual comradery here making grade school a wonderful experience. It's like one big family! Dear Mr. Gould retired and the new principal Mr. Ryba energetically continues the excellent Muraski reputation. Academics are excellent (see Test Scores) with great opportunities in Art Music sports and clubs too. Offers 'cluster grouping' for the gifted child if the child did not quality for Strongsville's 'self-contained' gifted program at Allen Elem. Teachers & staff will work tirelessly with parents to get the student what he/she needs to have the best education even if the answer lies elsewhere! Fabulous new building addition to be completed Fall 2006 will solve long-standing overcrowding problems. Muraski rocks!

    The principal Mr. Gould is a gem! He is very visible in the school throughout the day and he is always available to the parents students and staff who he supports completely. He knows most students and their parents by name. The teachers we have been involved with thus far have been top notch! They have a fantastic art program. The teacher emphasizes the basic foundations of art and the amazing results are seen in the various projects that are displayed for public viewing during the annual school wide art show. There are several activities throughout the year that encourage individual and team effort and some also involve the student's families. Overall I believe this is a great school!
