    "The best thing about Peru Central High School are the motivating teachers. They help the students do their best by putting their time in after school, going out of their way to support hard workers, and dedicating their time to help create the best learning experience for their students. Often times the teacher checks in with the class as a whole in order to see if everyone is reaching their full potential. This creates an environment where changes can be made to better learning experiences. While classes may be very independent / self-taught, the teacher is always there if you come in during your own time. If you put the effort in they do the same for you. This always students to excel in all areas of study. Although Peru Central School is lacking in some areas like diversity and food, it can be overlooked by the amazing work of the teachers."

    "Overall. It was a good school to attend. Sometimes they make decisions for everyone involved, that puzzles the mind. They don't always look at, or try to look at every angle of a subject before diving head first into a longterm decision. Although, they do have a wide range of classes, and extracurricular activities the students can delve into to explore what they are interested in moving forward. It would be preferred if the all of administrators treated each as equals, and provided more support for each moving forward. A great majority of teachers at Peru are wonderful at their job and care for the students. They are great for helping students develop as people. In the later years, Peru has some fantastic staff which help a person move on into their next step in life, college, military, or work. Finally, pack a lunch if possible."

    "I love and appreciate all the things my school has done for me; but, being a student in enrolled in the hardest courses I feel it is unreasonable not to weight AP classes. Many of my friends' ranks are lower than the ranks of people who took the easy path in school and I find that unreasonable. I have recently become aware that gym is not required throughout all of High School in New York State. Gym is meant to keep students somewhat fit and healthy giving them physical activity. I believe gym is unnecessary for a year round athlete. These students are already pushing themselves and spend much of their time involved in activity. Gym class, for these students, should be replaced with study hall or another class so they can actually make something of their time not already spent on athletics. My school is not willing to change and mend to this so it still requires it, even though it is unnecessary."
