Many of North Murray's students apply for free and reduced lunches, meaning that if a student's family has a low enough income for the size of is or her family due to unemployment or various other reasons, his or her family can apply to receive school lunch for free or at a reduced price. Though many students face poverty, they take what they are given and try to better themselves. Many students who drive are a part of our Work-based Learning Program, in which they leave school early to go to a job or internship so they can begin saving for college and or gain experience in their chosen careers. Many students also take free college classes at North Murray's campus through Georgia Northwestern Technical College and or Dalton State College, which allows them to go ahead and get up to an Associates Degree for free. Being a North Murray Mountaineer is so much more than just supporting our football team on a Friday night or going to the basketball games. We Mountaineers are strong, and we take what life deals us with a smile on face and do our best to better ourselves and situations w are put in. We do our best to better our country, state, city, and home because we have the power to create a better life for those coming after us. That is what North Murray's student body is about.
