Perry Reviews

3 reviews
This is a small bedroom community. The hub of community activity is the schools. Perry has a very modern, very high tech school facility, built with tax money from the nuclear power plant. The teachers are, for the most part, very good, as is the program. It's a big football town, in spite of its small size. In fact, aside from school activities, there's really not a lot of social life in Perry. It's also a very safe community. Things left outside on your porch or deck will still be there when you get back. Most of the homes and families are upper middle class,and home prices can be a bit on the high side--homes in Perry are at least 10% more than an identical home in the nearby town of Madison, simply because of the community and school system. The only jobs in the area are with the nuclear plant, nurseries, and few small manufacturing facilities, or service industry jobs.

Perry is a small town where everyone knows everyone's name. This is a "homey" place to live. The community supports one another and presents a very welcoming atmosphere.
I love the small town feel, the caring neighbors and the privacy provided in this community. I have lived here for over 15 years and I plan to move back after college.
