The modernized Murchison spaces were inspired by the northwest Austin landscape and the school site’s history as a former rock quarry. The project includes a new 6th-grade addition, media resource center and administrative spaces. Due to COVID-19 and in-person gathering restrictions, Murchison will celebrate its grand opening virtually, with remarks from Principal Newton and AISD leadership, as well as a video tour of the new facility.

Media Opportunities
Interviews with Murchison Principal Beth Newton, Superintendent Stephanie Elizalde, AISD Board President Geronimo Rodriguez and Trustee Kristin Ashy are available upon request.
