Murphy Middle School houses 6th, 7th and 8th graders.  We have a variety of special interest extracurricular activities as well as sports for our students.  We are also extremely proud of our new STEM lab.  This state of the art lab was opened in November of 2018 and allows our students access to many opportunities that are not available anywhere else in Western North Carolina. We pride ourselves on providing our students with the opportunity to explore, learn and grow in an environment where they feel supported and challenged.
