Very recent alum. I would say Perk is perfect in many ways. People at Perk are incredibly nice and actually cares for each other. Diversity at Perk is real, people are from all over the world.
The only thing I would pick on is that Perk is not academically competitive at all. The teachers don't hold very high standards on students. They won't push you to improve beyond your current level. Many teachers are very mediocre, they failed to inspire students to learn. Most people at Perk lack intellectual curiosity. Although Perk offers an enormous amount of AP courses, but only few AP courses are good. Most teachers expect you work on your own outside of classes to get a 4 or 5. Studying at Perk is not stressful at all, but it doesn't prepare you well for the rigorous work in college. I wouldn't recommend Perk for anyone who is academically ambitious.

Despite a toxic and over athletic vibe, the school has amazing faculty and facilities. The students of the school are mostly vapid materialistic and cliquey children, but the academics really are top notch. Teachers tutored me, got me scholarships, and went out of their way to see my success. While it’s easy to coast through Perk, if you take it seriously this place will and can make your dreams come true. The students were awful and entitled, but the faculty changed my life.
Teachers and administrators great , they look out for you as a student and are always available.
A lot of new opportunities with Medical Center and Entrepreneur institute.
Good mix of day and boarding students. Large international population, feel connected to the world.
Like a 2nd home... but with AP courses.
