About the Perry School

Learn about our mission, vision, student expectations, and what sets us apart.



The Perry K-8 School is a community working together to prepare our students for successful futures.  

We develop strong relationships with families and students to provide the best education for every child, every day.  


Our focus is to academically and socially advance our students through innovative experiences designed to positively promote the learning of the whole child.


Through an intentional focus on student-focused and grade-level standards aligned academic and social-emotional learning opportunities, we will continue to close our opportunity and achievement gaps.
