Metropolitan School District of Perry Township Reviews

It is a great school. We have a fantastic wrestling coach who has led us to state finals. There are a bunch of clubs and afterschool options as well as an afterschool study program. There are some great people here but also some people that are quite rude or just don't have common sense. At this high school, we try hard to get everybody to support our school whether it's at a football game or a school dance. I like it a lot but there is a lot of problems with the way teachers treat students. There is also a corrupt disciplinary system. There is sometimes racism involved with the way teachers treat students not that much but it happens. Teachers and staff are willing to support or help anyone willing to work for it. well, most people. There are good people but there is so much negative it outweighs the positive.

This school district has been my home since kindergarten, facilitating my learning growth for almost 13 years. All schools are in great conditions, with numerous construction projects to continually improve facilities. Out of the dozens of teacher I've had, I've only really had two teachers I didn't really like, however they do not outweigh the other dozens of amazing, dedicated teachers I've encountered in my education in this township. My high school offers many classes and activities not available in other schools, such as a student-run newspaper and a leadership group. I am proud to be from Perry Township, as they've shaped me into the dedicated student I am today.
Perry Meridian High School is the best high school to be at. I enjoy going there everyday because there is school spirit, great peers, great teachers, and more. If you are enrolled in an AP course, the teachers prepare you well for the tests that come in May. Students work hard and the teachers are amazing. The school is one of the best because there are many clubs, sports, and extracurricular actives to do. The school offers plenty of opportunities to receive scholarship awards and are making sure that students are doing their best.
