Welcome to Perry Public Schools and the “Ramblers”!
Perry opened its’ doors in 1839 as a one-room school. In 1885 we hosted our first high school commencement of six student in a two story brick building and have progressed over the years to where we are today, serving 1,265 students in grades pre-kindergarten to grade 13 (early college).
Our comprehensive school system includes a pre-school and elementary building through fourth grade. It blends child care for every age from infants on up. We are particularly proud of the small town family atmosphere where children can learn and grow in safety.
Perry Middle School teaches kids from 5th through 8th grades. PMS provides a caring place for those pre and early teens to grow. We know our role is more than just teaching “subjects”, it is to provide a kind and caring place socially, emotionally, and physically for their development.
Perry High School prepares students for work or college with a solid core curriculum and a healthy dose of the arts. Our Band is highly respected and includes over 25% of all our students. Vocal music, visual art, drama, agri-science, construction trades, and wood working are a few of the opportunities available on campus. In addition there are over 20 vocational and technical programs and an entire year of FREE college classes available through the Early College Program. We even offer a full selection of on-line courses, grades 6 through 12, for families who wish to home school their students.
PHS is an orderly school that prides itself on being student friendly. It includes a student run coffee shop and school store for healthy snacks, studying, and relaxing.
PHS boasts some of the finest athletic facilities around and offers many opportunities for student participation in clubs and social activities. We even have an equestrian team!
I have tried to paint a picture of our schools as friendly, relaxed, orderly, but academically progressive and a technological leader. This introductory greeting is your invitation to call us for a personal tour and discussion about how Perry Public Schools can benefit your student.
I encourage you to take a look at Perry Public Schools. You owe it to yourself and your student.
