Perkins Elementary School is a beautifully designed, architecturally pleasing elementary school that is beautiful to look at and has a well kept, clean campus. Like most elementary schools, this one lacks in the curriculum department. With old, out dated curriculum, and a lack of will to achieve and succeed, the curriculum is really weak in the major core courses especially language arts including writing and spelling. The parent involvement at this school is high, and the teachers are loving, caring, and nurturing. I don?t know if they just don?t think there is a chance for success, or what the deal is, but they choose not to set higher standards for the students at this school which is, at the very least a disservice to the students, staff, and the community. Perkins Elementary School serves children kindergarten through grade 5, and they have fewer than 500 students enrolled at this school. This school also has some of the best teacher-student ratios of any elementary school in town. As far as how Perkins Elementary scores in relation to other schools, it lacks, in test scores, in progress, and in many other fields. It?s near the bottom when compared with other schools, and I don?t think it?s for a lack of effort, it?s because they just set the standards very, very low at this school. Parking is easy to come by, and you don?t have the traffic mess nightmare when you drop your children off and pick them up. The teachers really care about the students, but it seems to me like the whole staff has surrendered to their position, and thinks that they cannot do any better than they are currently doing, and therefore they do not strive to achieve more. They are a good school; they would be a great school if they pushed for higher standards among their students and their teachers. The teachers at this school are highly qualified professionals, so why they set their standards so low is something that I will never be able to understand about Perkins Elementary.

PROS: Well kept, architecturally pleasing campus, great teachers
CONS: Low standards
