Murrell Motto: Taking Control For Success In Life
At Murrell our motto is more than just a slogan. It is an essential part of the programming we provide to our students. Embedded in all of our lessons is the teaching of socially acceptable, safe, and appropriate behaviors and social skills. Our goal for every student entering our school is to provide a therapeutic environment that promotes the attainment of these skills in order for them to make a smooth, successful transition back to their schools of zone.

Families and students often have had negative school experiences. Parents and students may have the expectation that Murrell School wilkl be yet another setting for failure. Some students with exceptionalities face hurdles that are often magnified in the typical school setting. Negative social and behavioral issues are often a result of poor academic performance due to behavioral issues. Students struggle with negative feelings about school and themselves. 

    Murrell’s faculty and staff attempt to put all of the puzzle pieces together to provide the conditions necessary to give these students the assistance they need to meet their individual challenges. While we believe that disabilities may always be a challenge to our students, we do not believe that they are a roadblock to success in life. By combining research-based practices to teaching and learning coupled  with behavior modification, we establish individual programs for each student. Our partnership with Centerstone provide group and individual therapies, psychiatric services, and case management to increase our program's effectiveness. Achievement in academics, social and emotional skills, behavior, and self image all go hand in hand in preparing students for a transition back into thier schools of zone. This allows them to take control of their own destiny to find success in life.
