“You cannot open a book without learning something.”
Thank you for your interest in Perry Central Community Schools! At Perry Central, the 3 "Rs" of relationships, rigor, and relevance provide a foundation for learning. Everything begins with positive, caring relationships among students, teachers, parents and the whole school community. We believe in the adage, "People don't care what you know until they know that you care." At Perry Central, we respect and care about students first. That said, it is our mission to ensure that students are prepared to meet the challenges they will face, and we endeavor to provide them rich experiences in a culture of high expectations for learning. Perhaps now more than ever, students need to see how their learning connects to the world around them and how they can make a contribution to the world. Relevance improves student motivation and fosters self-directed learning. Relationships, rigor, and relevance...the Perry Central promise.
