Perry High School is the only high school I have attended. But through speech and debate, I have been able to visit other high schools in different districts and even states and I have noticed one thing. My school lacks diversity, college readiness, culture, proper facilities, and a community-minded outlook. Perry High School is very focused on how it looks on paper, and not the well being of students. Perry lacks up to date technology, up to date coursework, and lacks the general caring mentality for the students in the building. In order to allow for the prosperity of Perry to return, the students must come first in the administrative and teachers' minds.

Perry High School is a place that makes me feel safe. I enjoy the staff members and feel comfortable knowing I always have someone I could trust to go to. I've made many friends and love the school spirit. I just wish that more students were into school spirit and participating in school fun, like spirit week. Perry has also done good implying the rules to keep students safe, like the no vaping fine created. The principal, vice principal, and superintendent make sure they are at as many school events they could make it to. Another change I would like to see would be the standard grading system go back to point-based grading system.
I love my school because of the spirit we have when everyone comes together, whether it's a football game, a swim meet, or even a robotics competition! Perry High School provides students with everything you need to be successful in life in and after high school!
