    We just loved Perry We sadly had to take our daughter out of 1st grade and move to Arizona. The level of care and attention at this school is great. The only thing about it we didn't like was the 'clickyness' from some of the other parents other than that we'll miss the area and school. Mr Wicks the Principal is a great asset to the school.
