The mission of Matthew C. Perry Elementary School is to empower students to achieve excellence in scholarship, character, and citizenship as independent lifelong learners. The school’s success is enhanced by strong stakeholder and command support. Perry’s partners and volunteers are Samurai-Strong, fostering and modeling high expectations for our students throughout the year. There is often no distinction between parent- and non-parent volunteers. Selfless men and women contribute their time and talent to empower Perry’s students to become altruistic citizens of strong character. Perry teachers are Samurai-Smart, investing in our students and their future with interventions to support all learners. They dedicate themselves to 21st Century teaching and learning to prepare students for global job markets. Perry students are Samurai-Successful; they rise to the high expectations of our teachers and community partners because anything less is not an option. Perry parents are Samurai-Stellar, not only serving as active-duty US Marines and Sailors overseas, but serving as collaborative role models for students and the community. Perry instruction is Samurai-Sensational, embedding data-analysis into all areas of teaching, learning, understanding, creating, and leading.
