Perham Senior High School Reviews

I've attended six different schools in my twelve years of schooling.compared to other schools the Perham atmosphere teaches you how to be independent, and improve your time management skills which is what most benefited me. Each school I've been in has had its own list of pros and cons, but the students at Perham High School has made up most of Perham's pro-list. The students are taught to not only treat others how they want to be treated, but also to respect others as they respect themselves.


I love how active the community is with the Perham education system. Back in September, the entire Perham community was included in the Perham-Dent District homecoming parade. All staff, students, and parents had fun being apart of the parade, and supporting the varsity football team.

No other school I've been to has been so connected with the community, My experience has overall been very good, and I am glad that I got to spend my senior year here.

Trying to fit all the college level courses into your schedule was difficult. I didn't get to take some of the college courses I wanted to because of the counseling department.
The entire school system is staffed with caring and knowledgeable teachers, coaches and leaders. Now that a new school facility is being built, this school will be head and shoulders above the average.
