Perry high is a very diversity! The teachers are phenomenal and are very caring for their students at perry high! The staff as in the administration all the way down to the lunch ladies are so helpful and have hearts of gold, the best times here were when we send teams off to their playoff games, or even at the prep rally’s getting ready to beat that ticket team! PHS most importantly a family! and as our principle would say “Commit to the P, and have panther pride in everything you do.”

I moved to Perry High School my sophomore year. The teachers there focus on each student and are almost always understanding and super helpful. They helped me raise my GPA by .3 and I am now able to apply for scholarships I couldn't before. Staff is always kind to students and helps create an encouraging environment on campus. The school encourages both studies and extracirculars to students. There are plenty of clubs you can try out and join. I loved theater, it was my safe place. I'd loved my time at Perry High School and wouldn't trade my time there for the world and I especially can't wait to go back the school year. "Remember Panthers, commit to the P"
Throughout my four years at Perry High School, I have had not one complaint. It is an amazing school with high standards. A school with goals that are not only made but kept. As far as the campus, the custodians work very hard to keep the school clean and hazard free. The facilities are well kept always. There is definitely diversity in the school within the students and faculty. The teachers are not only the best at what they do but they often try to relate to their students and create friendships as well. The athletic teams at the school all strive for greatness, whether its in the classroom or in their practices. The band is always working their hardest, as well as theater. There are so many clubs and activities at Perry High School. It is without a doubt when I say that there is something for everyone there.
