1 review for Perry Central High School

  • Reviewed by Teacher on November 19, 2009
  • Rating: 5 (5 / 5) Flag as inappropriate
  • Teachers care nothing about the students. They spend most of their time degrading other teachers and staff. Uneducated secretaries run the school and meddle in the business of those who have Masters degrees. Worst morale ever and unprofessionalism permeates the entire school infrastructure. Very destructive and disharmonious school setting.
