This is my daughter's first year at Perryville High School. I am so far very pleased with her experience. Many of her teachers have upper level degrees or are nationally certified. I can see a clear difference in the level of professionalism and how seriously these teachers take their jobs. Guidance and the teachers are also going above and beyond with mentoring and helping the student with things outside of the normal classroom teaching. My daughter is enrolled in the STEM (Science, Technology, Math, Engineering,) program which has been a fantastic challenge. She is also enrolled in a 4 year BioMed program that is special to Perryville HS. This program is giving her an advanced look at biomedical topics that will help her determine if the biomedical field is right for her. I have always believed that a great education begins with the family. I am thrilled to have my daughter in a school system that cares and is doing great things -- and I don't have to pay $500,000 for a home in this school district!

Heyy. I am a junior at perryville. Perryville is not a bad school at all. It may be in the middle of no where but its just as good as any other school. Sports at perryville are a very good thing. It helps you keep your grades up and work hard. Your coaches also push you hard to keep them up. The teachers here are pretty good. They teach you and try to do their best to educate you. I play a few sports here and they are deff. a good thing at Perryville. I would recomend Perryville as a school for your child. It is truley a great atomosphere.

Hi! I'm a junior at PHS and I just have to say P-ville isn't as bad as some make it out to be. I'm on the academic team and in two AP classes. We have numberous extra ciricular activities and we're not all druggies. Thought I should clear that up. I definately recomend our school. Bye!!

Perryville High School is basically in the middle of the road in all aspects. The facilities, sports, and academics are all fair. There are some great teachers, but probably more to avoid. Hopefully, Perryville can find a way to take on the standards of Harford County Schools, rather than resorting to the mediocrity of Cecil County Schools.

Perryville high school is a extremely friendly school with a good atmosphere. With it's new principal and schedule it will be a interesting to see if it's test scores improve. With overcrowded hallways and classes it is an okay school all around but the teachers are what really make it stand out. 3 out of 5.

About the tests


In 2012-2013 Maryland used the Maryland High School Assessments (HSA) to test students in English 2, Algebra, and Biology upon completion of each course. The HSA is a standards-based test, which means it measures how well students are mastering specific skills defined for each grade by the state of Maryland. Students are required to pass the tests in order to graduate. The goal is for all students to pass the tests.
