There are plenty of reasons why you might be interested in our new Murray community, The Gallery at Bullion Place. After all, with its central location, easy access to multiple modes of transportation, and beautiful park system, Murray is one of the best cities to move to in the Salt Lake Valley. Today we wanted to tell you a little more about one aspect of Murray that helps set the city apart from others in Utah. And that is the Murray School system. If you’re interested in this aspect of your new Utah home, please read on.
An Independent School District
Unlike most other cities in Utah, Murray operates its own independent school district. The Murray City School District. Creating an opportunity to focus on the education needs of local students rather than taking the needs of multiple cities or even an entire county in some cases. This local touch is just another aspect of Murray’s determination to carve out its own identity for the past 120 years. Teaching an important “out of class” lesson on individuality to the students they serve.
Enrolling students in grades K-6, Longview Elementary School is where the youngest residents of our The Gallery community will attend school. Utilizing a school community council, parents can enjoy a greater deal of involvement in their children’s education plan than just volunteering in the classroom. This system also creates opportunities to teach engaged students the value of community engagement. Allowing them to take more pride in the city they live in, a crucial aspect of raising good citizens. Early technology integration also allows students to be prepared for modern life capping off the well-rounded experience Longview Elementary offers.
Riverview Jr. High
Serving grades 7-9, Riverview Jr. High offers a very focused education experience. Longview’s early technology integration will start to pay off with Riverview’s career preparation classes and various club offerings. While choral, art, and instrumental classes create an opportunity for students to learn better ways to express themselves through the arts. Ensuring they not only develop intellectually but also emotionally. In turn strengthening the shine of the treasure that is Murray City.
Murray High School
Home of the Spartans and students grades 10-12, Murray High School is one of the great prides of the city of Murray. Striving for excellence in all aspects, MHS sponsors multiple athletic endeavors, AP Classes, Concurrent Enrollment, and trade centered CTE classes. Every student is given an opportunity to find where their talents lie. While clubs allow students to enjoy structured recreation that can help create positive school memories beyond the classroom. Allowing for more capable and experienced adults after High School ends wherever they choose to go next.
Murray, Utah is probably one of the most community centered cities in the Salt Lake Valley. Which is saying something with the work the entire state of Utah puts into investing in itself.
