Oliver H. Perry Elementary School

  • The Oliver H. Perry Elementary School is a strong and welcoming community of thinkers, problem solvers and collaborators that was recently recognized as a School On The Move Award finalist. Together with our powerful partners and a very supportive family network, we work hard to ensure that our students are growing, developing and experiencing success each and every day!
