Murwood is a transitional kindergarten (TK) for 365 children in the rising Walnut Creek neighborhood to fifth grade elementary school. Murwood represents our community’s best in being a beautifully diverse high, situated in a neighborhood of the middle class. History says Murwood is located on land donated by two families exchanging surnames to create the “Murwood” logo. Murwood is a richly diverse community containing many of Walnut Creek’s socioeconomic aspects. We welcome students from areas of Alamo, suburban communities of Walnut Creek, and the large community of Creekside, taking us families from all over the world. Murwood is also their first educational cultural experience within the U.S. We are proud to be warm and welcoming, resulting in regular contact from families moving to the United States to request unique placement in our group. Their teachers, workers and families are working hard to ensure that newcomers feel comfortable and inclusive.

Murwood School’s family, community and staff should grow literate, outstanding learners who are highly motivated, imaginative and sensitive, in a child-centered, stimulating atmosphere that cultivates character and encourages learning. All students in the middle-school grades will leave Murwood Elementary School prepared for success.
