    As an update in 2013 the high school has been completely renovated now. There is a brand new elementary school and the middle school has has some updating also. There is a new superintendent who is a Perry native and alumni and has been a teacher at the high school. Things have greatly improved in Perry schools! Also you will rarely find a community that supports it's schools so strongly. I graduated from these schools in the 90s and my children attend them today. My children briefly attended another Oklahome school of roughly the same size (slightly larger) and it was a great disappointment after the Perry schools. Perry was more advanced cooperative and caring by far. I moved my kids back to Perry schools!

    I am an ex-employee of Perry OK School District. I found the Superintendent Timothy Smith to be a smug self-satisfied autocrat who has converted his office into a virtual throne room. His less-than-stellar administration has resulted in Perry High School's poor performance vis-a-vis neighboring high schools. I am genuinely sorry for the students faculty and ancillary employees squashed under this tyrant's thumb.

    The school is terrible all the money for the school goes to sports mainly wrestling. none of the textbooks are up to date. us as students dont get the education we need that is why this school is poorly and sadly misfortunite.

    I graduated in 2005 and there were more than 180 buckets catching water upstairs. They actually had to stop using 3 of the classrooms upstairs because they were full of buckets. Most days they only turned on about 1 of every 10 lights to save on utility bills. I managed to get a decent high school education thanks to a couple incredible teachers but they usually don't last long due to ingroup-outgroup dynamics and the ridiculous administrative turnover.

    This school has turned around since the first review. The teachers know what they are talking about and they have been using interesting methods to help the students take in the information better. The only reason that the students might not be getting help is because they are not taking the time out of their 'busy' schedules to go into the teachers to get help.

    The school provides poor education. Some of the teachers do not know their subjects; some are unable to communicate to the students in an interesting and informative manner. The students who are interested in learning get stuck in routine like copying from textbooks. The students who missed something in class and need some help do not get it. Another problem probably relates to many schools in Oklahoma. They do not teach the world history at all. How many years a student can learn about Oklahoma counties?
