Real Stories from Real Students:
The best part about Perk is the people. The faculty and the small community of students is almost like a family. If you are missing home, teachers like Mr. Lopez brings my spirit back. The trips that he takes us to are awesome. I feel at home with him and my friends here on campus. My favorite activity is basketball. I already decided my winter activity for the next three years and it will be basketball. This is because it is competitive. Although I don’t play very well like the other guys on varsity, I really enjoy the time I spend playing basketball.
