Like all new schools, Perry had a good run its first couple of years. Now it's too big and has grown too fast to accommodate all of the students and their individual needs, and to allow them to shine in their own right. My daughter was lost in the system at Perry, not only due to its size, but also because it is quite clique-ish. In retrospect, I wish we'd chosen one of the smaller Chandler high schools.
The school has an excellent environment for developing good character. They allow children to be released from school to attend religious courses of their choosing during the day which further helps them develop good characteristics.
We have had two daughters attend Perry High School and have been extremely impressed with the school. The classes are excellent, in particular the honors courses. Their fine arts programs are unbelievable, particularly their orchestra program which has placed 1st or 2nd nationally for several years. Perry has a multitude of extra-curricular activities and groups that kids can get involved in to help them develop their interests create bonds with their peers. We would highly reccomend this school to anyone.
Bullying, not only by students, but teachers. Kids should always have an adult (teacher) on their side, to protect them. School should be fun as well as a place of learning. Very sad when teachers chime in and start name calling. Definitely not a good, safe environment.
My daughters had 2 good teachers the whole time they attended Perry, most seemed like they didn't care. The Athletic Director is absolutely horrible, she is one of the rudest people I have ever met and the Administration is not much better. Do yourself a favor a choose one of the other high schools in the area.- a parent
We had an awful experience with Perry. We worked with their staff for weeks before we moved and they were extremely cold and unhelpful. When we actually arrived in AZ we went to the school twice and they were so extremely rude and impersonal. It was so hard as moving a high school student is very difficult and they didn't help in the least. So disappointing. They lied to is about rules that we confirmed with Chandker school districts and we finally enrolled our teen into a different school it became so frustrating. Would never recommend them to anyone.
