King Murphy Elementary is a special school embarking on an incredible journey of discovery. As the interim principal, Sandy Craig, I am honored to be a part of it. The King Murphy community is currently dreaming big and exploring all of the opportunities this alpine, majestic environment has to offer. The school is undergoing a remarkable transition both physically and culturally.
A bond initiative is underway with expansion, upgrades and beautification. Our preschool classroom spaces are being expanded, our gym is being refurbished and the building flooring is being updated over the next 2 years. Additionally, King Murphy is welcoming new leadership with a recently hired principal who begins work summer of 2022.
King Murphy is embracing experiential learning through the piloting of EL Education, expeditionary learning in Literacy, with extensions in science and social studies. The school's redesign also includes programs in social emotional learning, character building and anywhere, anytime learning! We are focused on designing a culture and community committed to: 
  • Rigorous, Consistent Instruction and Learning
  • Relevant/Real-World/Authentic Experiences
  • Student Driven Learning
  • Learning that demonstrates social consciousness and awareness
King Murphy Elementary hosts a connected community, small class sizes with personalized learning and the opportunity to truly build and hold meaningful relationships within this stunning mountain setting. Feel free to reach out to visit and tour our school. We welcome you!!
