Almost every teacher I had at Perry Meridian Middle School was enthusiastic about the material they were teaching and always made sure every student understood the material. Each teacher had their own teaching style, and they applied many different forms of presenting the information in order for a larger percentage of students to understand. If one student still did not understand, they were sure to help them individually after class so as to not hold back the entire class trying to help just one student.

Many of the teachers incorporate lessons to try and think out of the box. For some of the advanced classes, pushing less memorization and more practical knowledge seems to be more common. I haven't had a teacher that did not know what he/she was teaching.

2 years ago, our only AP Calculus teacher died of cancer during the school year. An algebra and finite teacher, Mr. Allen, volunteered to teach the class for the next year, even though he hadn't had calculus since college. He went to ap teacher training sessions during that summer to prepare to teach the next year's AP Calculus students. That year, 3 times as many ztudents passed the AP exam than they had in other years. This is an example of a Perry Meridian teacher's dedication.
This school has many immigrants from Burma, a country that is wrapped in a violent Civil War. Our school tries to help give the Burmese students a good education. We have many english language learning programs. Also, the school educates the staff about how to deal with students who are in culture shock, psychologically affected by traumatic experiences, and many other issues. Also, our school hosts many foreign exchange students from a variety of places. I appreciate this aspect of my school.
