Perkins Elementary School

The Michael J. Perkins School is the “Home of Outstanding World Learners.” We are preparing to provide our children with an unparalleled learning experience that broadens them as thinkers, problem-solvers, and change agents. With solid teaching and learning, we are enhancing the creativity, passion, and optimism each child brings to our campus. Our goal is to educate, empower, and elevate each young person to excellence as learners and global citizens!

Our children flourish because we have developed a Student Success Team model where we focus on the social, emotional, physical, and intellectual needs of the Whole Child. Our Student Success Team includes educators, advocates, specialists, parents, and community partners who are committed to cultivating resources and interventions to support our children.

With solid teaching and learning, we will enhance the creativity, passion, and optimism your child brings to our campus.  Our goal is to educate, empower, and elevate your son/daughter to excellence as learners and global citizens.
