    There is nothing like Perry Pride! I'm an alum and my kids now attend Perry Local Schools. Teachers at every grade level care greatly about their students success. Perry has received the best possible rating from the state eight years running why they are not rated '10' is beyond me. As our administration often says 'first class learning without the frills.' we don't have the newest building or coffee shops but 'WE ARE . . . PERRY!'

    Perry has an excellent tech prep program as well as some of the best teachers in the country. I was a student at Perry and I am currently taking classes to become a teacher. I hope someday to teach there myself. These people really inspired me and any parent should be proud to have their child in this school system

    Perry High School is a great school for young adults. I attended Perry and graduated in 2005. I really like how the school had pride and the teachers and staff cared.

    I think that the Perry High School is a wonderful School. My Daughter attends classes there and is doing a great job with her grades. This comes as sort of a shock to us because she was always struggling with her grades before she started attending Perry High . She says that the teachers are such a great help {she's just learning}How helpfull they really can be now! They take the time to make sure she understands what the lessons are and whats expected of her {to turn in }. Way to go teachers!
