Perry County School District Reviews

The Perry county school district is an overall excellent school to go to. It's a small area so you can get the one on one help and attention needed to be successful with your studies. This upcoming school year, I will be a Senior and I look forward to what my senior year has to offer. I am really excited and sad at the same time because, I will be leaving the Perry county school system. In closing, If you want one on one care for your child the Perry county school district is the way to go!

We love the small class sizes and caring staff. My child is known and loved by all. Teachers are always open to individual needs of the student and truly look after their students physical and emotional well being. This is a very small community and our schools still have a very small town fell. Our students are still allowed to be themselves and there isn't a big push to have them fit into a rigid box. Parental involvement is very low. Socioeconomic factors can be a barrier to the success of some students as this is a very rural area.
