I wish Perryville High School would show more teacher-appreciation. One of the music teachers here was nominated for Cecil County Teacher of the Year, and no one regarded the nomination. With teachers like the ones we have here, that kind of award doesn't happen every day.
Even though the teachers have rocky relationships with each other and administration, the students at Perryville never cease to amaze me. We still stand as the most diverse school in the county. For the most part "bullying" and "cliques" aren't at all common, allowing each student to reach their full potential as a high school student focused on their education and not on who might pick on them that day.

I began attending Perryville High my Sophmore year. It was rough, for one I was used to attending a more diverse school. It was difficult to fit in, and at times I felt my lonely. For the first year that I was here, I would sit alone with my brother at lunch because I felt like we were un-noticed. My entire life we had been moving from school to school, and it was much difficult to fit in here. Junior year I became more social and finally began to feel comfortable. Spanish class helped me connect with my roots and with kids that shared the same interest in me. Becoming a member in the Spanish Honor Society allowed me to feel as if I was part of something important outside of school, and like I was helping my community. One thing I disliked from this school is the food, I've lived in numerous states and without a doubt this school has the worst food, but it does have a great kitchen staff, always beyond friendly.
Perryville is a school that is very focused on providing students with the education and classes that they need to fulfill their capabilities. The school is very open to PLTW (Project Lead the Way) Programs, and the Biomed and Engineering programs are both well funded and staffed. We have a variety of AP classes which are heavily encouraged, and often times, guidance counselors will arrange the schedule to ensure that well performing students are placed in the favored classes. For upcoming freshmen, the Freshmen Academy is available to ease the way into high school. This involves a specialized schedule designed to ensure these students see their teachers everyday as well as sources for guidance and aid. However, students are not required to take this program if they are Honors students. Finally, there are a lot of very enthusiastic teachers who care a lot for their subject and students.
