It is a very exceptional school that has a lot of benefits for their students. They have teachers that care deeply for the students and will do whatever is needed to help the students excel, not only on academics but also in the real world. Over all the way Perry's teachers influence their students is phenomenal. Especially the Spanish teacher, MaryJo Hagedorn.

Perry Central is an exceptional school. There are tons of opportunities to make connections to job opportunities, the faculty are amazing, and there are plenty of chances to get scholarships and college credit.
The teachers are great and willing to help their students in anyway they possibly can! Our guidance counselor is the best! She is willing to go out of her way in order to make sure all the seniors are prepared and ready for all the obstacles that college has to give us! Our principal is standard. He takes charge when he needs to, but sometimes makes a big deal out of small events. I suppose that's better than not taking charge however. Our dress code is strict at first, but eventually some girls and guys weasel their way into wearing clothing that is not appropriate, but they are sent home to change once caught. The school atmosphere is wonderful though. I've never had to worry about violence outbreaks and have always felt safe at my school. Overall the staff and the student body give off a great deal of spirit and kindness.
