My overall experience at Perry-Lecompton was a pretty good one. There are some things about it I liked while there are some things I would change. One of the things I liked about it was the option to take college classes while in high school. Our school is connected with Highland Community College which allows us to take some classes there and get some college credit out of the way. One thing I would change however, is the lunches. I believe we should be able to get better food and also get the option to have an open lunch and be able to go get food at other places. I would also like to see more classes available to take.

A good portion of the staff is great. The small town community allows for good connections between teachers and students. The teachers are always trying to prep their students beyond just the curriculum. If there is any downtime, they also teach life lessons from either their own lives or the lives of their children. The only thing that could be better in this school is the attitude of the community. The community looks down upon the good teachers that are actually doing good for Perry-Lecompton.
Ninety percent of teachers here are amazing. The staff is always helping and love chatting with students. The class selection is broad yet minimal st the same time, making hard to choose classes that actually fit into the major you want in college.
