Through collaboration. Edvestors has provided live coaching to staff and learning resources such as ST Math to improve student outcomes. We are grateful for our continued partnership with Edvestors!
Boston Schools Fund
Boston Schools Fund works with Boston Public Schools to provide grants and technical assistance to expand high-quality schools and the Perry is lucky enough to be a partner in this work. Since awarding the Perry a three-year literacy grant in 2018, Boston Schools Fund has supported literacy curriculum alignment, teacher professional development and the purchases of numerous high-quality student-learning resources that have made the Perry School a positive learning environment.
The Paraclete is a local South Boston partner that is committed to helping our Perry Sharks succeed. Over the years, the Paraclete has been a place for a number of our students to go to after school to continue their learning through academics, enrichment and even cooking! The Perry/Paraclete partnership continue to grow as this amazing partner provides Perry students in grades 4-6 an opportunity to learn the ins and outs of the ISEE test and develop test-taking skills needed for a successful future.
Doc Wayne is an award-winning nonprofit reimagining therapy through the lens of sport. Using an evidence-informed curriculum, which incorporates social-emotional learning and life skills, our team supports students as they grow into resilient leaders and learners. Over time, as individuals and in teams, they learn to heal together, grow together, and win together. Doc Wayne works our students during recess, group therapy and individual therapy.

Kayla Morse Higgins, EdVestors
The willingness of teachers to reflect on their practices and support students in deeper learning, encourages me as a coach and as a partner in learning alongside them. Perry Pride is not just a slogan, but it is what the students and staff bring to all that they do!
I love the collaborative and inclusive environment that Perry creates for all members of its community. Perry values fostering well-rounded students, and it has been a pleasure to be a part of that system of support!
The Perry School is an exceptional community to be a part of. Whether it's inside the classroom, or outside on the playground, I've found it to be a learning environment where student voices are elevated and social-emotional learning is valued.
CEO, Boston Schools Fund
