Our School

The teachers and staff at John Murdy Elementary are hardworking and dedicated to providing our students with high quality learning experiences and preparing them for future success. We are proud to offer an on-site GATE (Gifted and Talented Education) Program and our district’s first Vietnamese Dual Language Program.

We have a strong commitment to STE(A)M, and recognize the importance of getting technology into the hands of our students.  All our students participate in Hour of CODE and many elect to participate in robotics. The last three years, we partnered with a local high school to bring an art teacher to Murdy to provide lessons after school.
