Overall would not recommend coming here for high school. There's about six clubs offered, the same lunch sides are offered everyday, about half the teachers actually care about your education, and there is only two AP classes offered. Not to mention sports are over 300 dollars, and clubs are 50 dollars. Plus the administration threatens to raise the prices every time they don't get anything they want such as levies. But hey, at least they passed a levy for a football stadium, instead of for academics!

I loved many things about Perkins High school. Most teachers that I had were amazing and did their best to see me succeed in life. The environment was peaceful as well, there was no bullying, no kids being mistreated, no sad kids insight. The only thing I would say that the school needed to approve on would be the teaching. Most of my teachers were excellent, but there were a few that did not teach the lesson properly for students to fully understand.
Perkins is such a close knit community. It feels like a home. Going into school, I'm sure that there are some schools where people feel like they might be bullied, or that they'll be put into cliques and be very separated from the "popular" students, but Perkins is not like that. My entire life, I have not once seen anyone bullied. Perkins is not segregated into groups either. No one's afraid to talk to anyone, everyone is friends, which is very comforting.
