    Perry Hill along with all of Northwest Allen County Schools is a great school. All of the teachers and administration are fantastic. Couldn't be happier sending my 3 children there.

    Perry Hill has a new principal. She is terrible. Concrete on playground needs replaced. Large chips children can easily fall and hurt themselves. Teachers are no longer motivated. Children are starting to bully other children. Would not send child here if you do not have to.

    Northwest Allen is a good school district. We have had children at two of the elementary schools in this district. We were happy with both but Perry Hill is the best! EXCELLENT Principal and EXCELLENT teachers.

    My child is new and loves this school. Her teachers are very kind. The principle took 1 on 1 time with her to make sure she had a great teacher match. She has already made friends and can not wait to go to school each day. She is also joining the band and is so excited. I am very happy with NWAC schools!

    My daughter is in the 4th grade at Perry Hill. She's my only child and means the world to me. She's had good caring teachers every grade. She likes school and and does well and that's the best review for me.

    My son went to Perry Hill and we loved the school. Northwest Allen county has excellent schools. Our PTO provided us with many great after school enrichment programs. My son had a wonderful 3 years there. The school is made up of many involved parents and great kids. The teachers are very attentive despite the large size of the school.
