Welcome to the Perry District Website.

 I have been a part of the Perry Schools for 31 years. I am proud to be a Perry Bluejay because this school district is all about Student Success. There are many programs and outstanding educators at Perry Schools that ensure Student Success. Throughout the year, we will share more details about the wide range of programs offered, ways we connect to students and families, and we will give insight to our top notch facilities and our Quality Teaching and Learning.

Thank you for visiting our website. My goal as superintendent is that each employee and student be the best version of themselves, to continue to build Perry Pride, and to learn and grow together to make this the best school district it can be.


Go Bluejays! Go Jayettes!

Make It A Great Day!

Clark S. Wicks, Superintendent

Perry Elementary!

Today the United States Secretary of Education, Miguel Cardona, recognized Perry Elementary as a 2023 National Blue Ribbon School.  Perry Elementary School was one of five Iowa schools who received this distinct honor as an Exemplary High Performing School, based on the performance on the Iowa Statewide Assessment of Student Progress(ISASP). The Blue Ribbon Award is considered the highest honor an American school can achieve. Since the inauguration of the Blue Ribbon Schools in 1982, only 138 Iowa Schools have received this award. Of the 138 Iowa schools, only 73 other Iowa Elementary Schools have earned this distinction, and now Perry Elementary is among those elite ranks.
