Perry high is almost like any other average high school. It's not much a greta place to try and make friends. Because of where the school is located and the type of people that live around the school effects the region and ranking of the school. Its not a school that anyone would most likely be recommended too in Houston county. The teachers and staff is fair, but i believe it could definitely be better!

During my four years at PHS, I created memories that will last forever. What I liked the most about Perry High is that no matter what your interests, there was bound to be somewhere where you fit in. It had an entire variety of student organizations and sports; from your basic FBLA and HCCLA, to the video gaming and anime clubs. I myself was a part of the Dual Enrollment Program where students are able to take college course classes in their fields of interest. Through the DEP, I was able to get an incredible head start on my career while still in high school! The only thing that would have made it better would have been spirt. When it came to school spirit and trying to pump the students up for pep rally's or just school itself, it seemed as though it was half done. Despite of the ups and downs of high school, PHS really did open the door to my future and had me one step ahead before I was even gone.
Perry high school was an amazing experience that I wish I could get back. It was a mix school that had many different ethnicities rather that one or two. The school held their school at a high expectation academically and behavior wise. I appreciate how helpful this school was on preferring me for college and giving me a head start towards a successful future. Other than on an academic state since my high school was the only one in the city it brought many races together to show that no one is different. What I wish would change is the athleticism exposer, my senior class have many students who truly deserved to be at a top-notch school but because of the poor expose not to many made it.
