Welcome to Perkins Local School District

Perkins Local School District, located in Sandusky, Ohio, serves approximately 2,100 students in preschool through grade 12. Our mission statement, “Perkins Schools...Igniting Minds for the 21st Century,” sets the tone to prepare our students to compete in a global society that requires more advanced levels of communication, collaboration, critical thinking and creative problem solving. To prepare our students, we believe it is essential to change “age-old” traditional teacher-led education to provide more opportunities for students to actively engage in their own learning. This requires a dramatic change in how we educate, and our core beliefs guide this process.

We believe:
• Students come first;
• Students need to be challenged with high expectations as life-long learners; and
• Developing strong partnerships is based on trust and honest communication.
