Welcome to Murray Independent

District of DistinctionThe Murray Independent School District website is your official source of information about our district, our schools, and our students.  We work hard daily to uphold the long tradition of academic excellence that has been in existence since 1872.  We provide a quality education in a safe and caring family-like environment.

We were among the first schools in West Kentucky to be fully accredited by the Southern Association, the first in Kentucky to have Drivers' Education, we were the leader with Head Start, the first in this area to move toward the innovative middle school concept, the first to have a national championship marching band, the first to be a nationally honored secondary school, and the list goes on.

Robert Frost said, "Home is the place, when you have to go there, they have to take you in." We like to think of our schools as the place, where, if you get to go there, you know they'll take you in. It's the place of fond memories and strong ties. Theologians may speak of the Trinity and World War II historians of the Big Three. We think our community has been shaped by three also ... the families, the churches, and this school district.
