Principal’s Message

Welcome to the 2017-2018 school year at Henry D. Perry Education Center. The start of a new year is always such an exciting time for all of us. Our teachers have had the opportunity to refresh and recharge in preparation for what will be busy, challenging and a fulfilling year for the entire Henry D. Perry organization.

Henry D. Perry Education Center is truly a 21st century learning environment, providing educational opportunities for infants and toddlers in our award-winning Child Development Center, for adolescents and young adults in our 8th Grade Academy and our Alternative High school and for adults through our Adult Education/Workforce Program. We strive to meet the academic and socio-emotional needs of all of our students as we prepare them to lead productive lives once they transition to life beyond their experiences here at Henry D. Perry Education Center.

We recognize that our students engage with us from a variety of past experiences, some successful while other experiences may have been overwhelmingly challenging. Our goal is to respond to the individuality of each student and help him or her to meet and define success as it pertains to their particular needs. Our highly personalized approach has earned Henry D. Perry a reputation as a school of second chances, a place to go to accomplish meaningful work. We believe in our students’ infinite potential.

Best wishes for an exciting, productive and successful school year. Let’s go!
