  • Run 4 Fun 21st Century Style
    MuM scholars and families, join us for Run 4 Fun every morning from 8:00-8:25 am on the lower field. As 21st Century scholars, we know it's important to physically get moving, which in turn, helps us focus and concentrate even more during the school day. Our goal is for scholars to reach 100 miles individually and 8,500 miles school-wide by the end of the school year! Let's reach for the stars and mileage will be kept track of as we travel the solar system! Go Mustangs!!

  • MuM's 924 API Tops District 3rd Year in a Row!

    Despite all the challenges facing public schools today, we continue to show growth and a great resolve to put education first. I could not be more proud of our staff, students and community. Murray Manor received a score of  924 (up 7 points from last year's score of 917) on the Academic Performance Index! The API is the cornerstone of California's Public Schools Accountability Act of 1999 and measures the academic performance and growth of schools on a variety of academic measures. This is an amazing score and reflects an increase of 6 points from last year and a total 50 points over the last three years. We are also the first school in the District to be above 80% proficient or advanced in both Language Arts and Mathematics on the California STAR test. Although there is so much more to what we do than score well on State test scores, it is a great validation for all of us to know that our vision and hard work is yielding great results. It's reflective of rigorous teaching and our scholars critically thinking.
