Great school! Love the small town feel at the school. I have 2 kids there, so we have seen a lot of the programs from sports, AG, etc. they have all been high quality. They also have after school tutoring etc available for those struggling. The principal is also very personable and helpful.

Great teachers and the office staff are friendly. They seem to have a genuine care for the students. My son has really enjoyed is first year in high school thanks to the warm atmosphere.

personally i think they would be better if they cared a bit more on what the kids want to learn and what they want to become in life. Like the auto tech has been waiting 7 years for a new lift when the AG class gets a new welder they never use. However they need to also look into children of parents do not get special treatment to certain things.

I went to Perry High school from 2001 till 2005 where I graduated at the top of my class. I loved Perry High School. The teachers were great, the sport teams were very good, and overall it is a wonderful school to attend!

In the 06'-07' school year I was a freshman at PHS and I was expecting high school to be much more difficult, but the teachers that I had worked very well with me to help me understand. However the administration was not of a good standard. The school its self did not seem safe to me I saw countless people walk on the campus during the day. PHS sould also have more security. The teachers are excellent.

Good competent teachers. Lots of activities - sports, drama, ffa, etc. Somewhat low level of parent involvement. Very good staff, excellent principle.
