I love Percy Priest because it is one big learning community family. The teachers, parents, principal, and students are all so vested in making sure it is a great place for children to grow and learn. We could not be more pleased!

We left a great private school for financial reasons and LOVE Percy Priest! We wish we had done it sooner.

Can't say enough good things about this caring, respectful learning environment. If all public elementary schools were like Percy Priest we would not have to worry about public education. High achievement important along with high parent involvement,

This school is incredible! All of the teachers gave me a positive outlook on life. The entire staff helped me through hard times in my life(including the death of Mr. Rodney Chase) I enjoyed this school alot. It fully prepared me for life following elementary school!
