The end of the school year brings excitement and a bit of relief. For high school students, the relief comes after finished end-of-course exams. That’s what I came across as I visited Murray High School in the Murray Independent school district, a District of Distinction. Students were working hard taking and practicing for their tests in mathematics and science.
