My daughter started attending in 2nd grade. She had a struggle at first because Perry is a little ahead of Canton City Schools when it comes to curriculum. The education here is definitely more thorough and the teachers are definitely more teaching rather than just giving out assignments. My daughter is now in 4th grade, is a Merit Roll student on her way to Honor Roll. My only complaint is the half day kindergarten. I hope they make it full day before my 1 year old starts.
