  • Welcome Message

    From the Main Office


    Dear Families,


    Welcome to Perkins School! We are proud of our school where we feel that every staff member here strives to make a difference in the lives of children. We have talented adults working with our students comprised of incredible teachers and support staff.  We are ready to support “Every Student, Every Day” both academically and socially to create a culture of learning, paving a path for future success.


    We know that by working collaboratively we will ensure an excellent education for your child. Please remember, your child’s academic success requires teamwork. It is essential that our parents and community members are partners in learning, and we believe it is our job to ensure we are providing the framework and foundation for that relationship. We encourage all parents to become involved in our school. We have a wonderful parent organization, the Perkins School PTA, which supports us and provides fun and educational events for students throughout the year. We also have many opportunities for parents to volunteer at events and in our classrooms.


    We know that each day will bring new experiences for our students that will be positive and engaging. We look forward to working with you and your child to ensure a productive and safe learning environment that learning environment that promotes the highest levels of student success.
