    Wow! This school and its' teachers are AMAZING! I have an honors student in this school and they are constantly challenging him. They also have a very strong arts program Marching Band Chorus Drama and art. The arts are very important to me and my family. I am so happy we decided on Perquimans County Schools for our children. Thank you teachers for all you do!

    The school has good teachers that care. Many technological upgrades have been installed with more on the way. Outstanding band department (my daughter is involved in the music program). Excellent opporunities for the students to better themselves in and out of the classroom. No matter how good parental involvment may there can never be too much. Overall one of the best schools in NC.
