staff photo Welcome to our website! We hope you'll use this site to learn more about a school system that is proud of its tradition of excellence. For over 140 years, the Murray Independent School District has provided a quality education to the students of our community.

Located in far western Kentucky only a few blocks from Murray State University and a few miles from beautiful Kentucky and Barkley Lakes and the vast Land Between the Lakes, Murray is a wonderful place to live, work, raise a family, and educate your children.

Our school has consistently ranked near the top of the list on the state accountability lists of student learning. We embrace rigorous academic standards, continuous improvement, and involvement of parents and community members. Our district maintains the highest accreditation possible as we have been recognized by Standard and Poor's as an Outperforming School District as well as being named one of eight Kentucky Districts of Distinction by the Kentucky Department of Education. You can refer to other areas of our website to learn more about the many accomplishments of our students regarding state and national rankings.

Although our district enrollment is only 1500 plus students, we are able to offer a wide range of classes.  For example, our high school offers eleven Advance Placement classes, three foreign languages, pre-engineering, and an areospace curriculum.

We're proud of our school system and we invite you to let us know if we can provide you with additional information.

Bob Rogers, Superintendent
