On behalf of Mr. Barge, Ms. Ingordo, and the entire faculty at Edward R. Murrow High School, we'd like to wish everyone a safe and enjoyable summer. We'd also like to send our final congratulations to the entire Class of 2015!
Have a wonderful summer everyone! See you in September!

Attention Murrowites!
If you are attending summer school this year at Midwood, you MUST bring your Murrow ID each day to swipe for entry. 

Murrow now has a PSAL Girls Soccer Team! For more information, please see Mr. Blatt or email him at lblatt@schools.nyc.gov asap. Be sure to return your paperwork to Mr. Blatt before June 26th. The season will start the second week of September (when school starts).

To enhance the safety of everyone at Murrow HS, each exit door has been installed with an alarm.  Only the main entrance (East 17th Street) is to be used during the school day.  We will continue to open certain exits during student entry and dismissal (two entrances on Chestnut and the entrance on East 17th Street), and the Avenue L entrance will be open during the day only for students to use to go to physical education classes outside, and during dismissal.  Please remind your children to only use authorized doors during the school day.  Each door with an alarm has a sign on it indicating that it is for emergency use only, and doors that are authorized during entry and dismissal have signs on them indicating what times they are in use. 

Thank you for your cooperation helping to keep all of our children and staff safe.  Any questions can be directed to Ms. Giberga, AP of Security, at sgiberg@schools.nyc.gov

Principal's Message

Dear Parents/Guardians:

On behalf of the exceptional faculty and staff of Edward R. Murrow High School, it is my pleasure to welcome you to the 2014-2015 school year. We are very proud of the 40 years of educational excellence that has come to define our community and we are eager and excited to continue our efforts to make Edward R. Murrow High School the best comprehensive high school in New York City.

“Edward R. Murrow High School is a large community with a small school feeling” (NYC Schools Chancellor – 4/4/2013). Our community consists of individuals who are committed to providing the CARE needed to prepare all students to be COLLEGE READY, CAREER READY, and LIFE READY (Edward R. Murrow High School was one of twelve schools featured in last year’s NYC DOE “School Time Lab Report” as a school that prepares students for college and careers). I am also proud to announce that our community will have the opportunity to share our best practices and collaborate with other schools throughout NYC as we have been selected to be a part of the Chancellor’s Learning Partners program. In addition, several of our teachers’ exceptional classroom practices will be showcased on the NYC Dept. of Education’s Interactive Rubric later this year.

This commitment extends well beyond our classroom walls. With a wide range of award winning teams, clubs, activities and events in addition to our renowned visual and performing arts programs (Edward R. Murrow High School was featured in last year’s “Annual Arts Survey” as a school that offers exceptional instruction in the arts), Edward R. Murrow High School affords all students the chance to feel involved and invested in their high school experience.

This year our efforts will continue to add to our students’ overall learning experience with a state of the art Planetarium, our first CTE approved program (Virtual Enterprise), the development of a new TV Studio program, a courtroom to further enhance our Law Program, and a Writer’s Institute. I invite you all to explore our website (ermurrowhs.org) to follow all the wonderful news and announcements of our community and learn more about the tradition of excellence that sets our school apart from other schools in New York City.

… because at Edward R. Murrow High School, we CARE about our students!


Allen Barge
