I graduated from Perry Central High School in 2016; this is when many changes were beginning to be made for the better. Since graduation, I have heard many great things about the administration and how they are working to make the school a more accepting and encouraging learning environment. With a more relaxed dress code and more rewards for good grades and involvement, test scores are increasing each year. With higher test scores and student attendance, funds are increasing for the school which means that many of the lacking resources that existed when I was in school there are finally improving. I can only hope that things continue to improve at Perry Central. The teachers and administration deserve recognition for the hard work they are doing.

It was memorable...…………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………..…………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………...
Our school is extremely small. We had to cut down on classes available this year. It seems as if the principal cares more about the appearance of the grass than anything else. Our guidance counselors is very hard to get to, since she is always busy with helping other students. Our school system is very unorganized when it comes to taking classes in order! (Example: I took a freshman class my junior year) tutoring is usually available mostly for math classes only.
