Perez was attended by my son for 5 years, he excelled. The teachers were for the most part OUTSTANDING. Perez was also blessed with great leadership first by Mrs. Knicsh and then by the current Principal .

There is no strong structure there. Teachers are weak and mellow. If your child happens to be too active or have discipline problems they don't know how to handle that and they don't want to deal with it.

I am grateful to be a part of such an amazing community. Every adult involved takes their responsibility in creating future leaders seriously. My children are being taught to be members of a global community and challenged academically. You can't ask for any more!

My son attended P. Perez after Christmas 2008. He was in kinder. My son excelled very quickly. You can tell the teacher had a passion for teaching. Plus they don't allow anybody to roam the halls without special permission, making P. Perez a very safe school. I am very impressed...

My fifth and 1st grader attended Perez last school year and it was a fantastic experience for both of them. I love the atmosphere created by the teachers, administrators, and staff. I am sure that this new school year will prove to be a great one as well.

It's like a private school...the kids really enjoy to go there. They do projects and contests where they really learn.
