Perry-Lecompton High School Reviews

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.
I am experiencing my last year at this high school and I am sad to go. Perry-Lecompton has made me who I am today and that is a hard working honest individual. It has done so from the opurtunities that are provided through out the school. Opurtunities like the vast variety of clubs offered, as well as extracurricular activities. I myself have learned the value of hard work and what it really means to lead a group based upon my role in varsity sports. The only drawback of the school is that in recent years the school board has not taken full responsibility of their actions. Despite the school board the faculty is genuinely passionate for the education of their students.
