• Murwood Overview

    Murwood is a 365 student transitional kindergarten (TK) through fifth grade elementary school in the growing Walnut Creek
    community. Murwood reflects the best of our community in that it is a beautifully diverse school, situated in a middle class
    neighborhood. History states that Murwood sits on land donated by two families who combined surnames to create the
    "Murwood" logo. Murwood is a richly diverse community that represents all socioeconomic facets of Walnut Creek. We welcome
    students from portions of Alamo, residential Walnut Creek neighborhoods and the large Creekside community, which brings us
    families from around the world. Murwood is often their first experience in the United States educational community. We pride
    ourselves on being warm and welcoming, which results in ongoing communication from families who are moving to the United
    States to specifically request placement within our community. Our teachers, staff, and families work hard to make sure
    newcomers feel welcome and included.
