Welcome to the John D. Perkins, Sr. Elementary School
located in the beautiful town of Marlow, NH. We pride ourselves on
being a community that is open and inclusive to all while providing the
highest quality standards based learning for ALL students.
The Perkins School cares. We
care about our community and everyone who is involved with it – from
its students, to its parents, to its teachers, to the citizens of
Marlow. We strive to show kindness and respect every day to each other
and to the people we meet.
The Perkins School thinks BIG.
Maybe it has to do with the mountain in our backyard or the state
highway that runs in front of our school, but we think BIG. There is
nothing we cannot do if we put our minds to it. We strive to be the best
in all we do and to make our community proud of us. The staff provides
rich, meaningful learning opportunities for all students to help them
develop their talents and skills. In addition to the rigorous academic
program, we also provide classes in art, music, library skills,
technology and physical education. The guidance counselor provides a
variety of services for students both individually and through the use
of small groups. From the beaver pond behind the school, to the
community gardens, or the outdoor classroom, teachers use the natural
resources on the school campus to engage and motivate students.The
school partners with a local outdoor education program to provide the
students additional experiences that engage them in problem solving and
community building throughout the year.
The Perkins School helps ALL students grow and learn.
Students who are identified with learning difficulties are serviced by
the special education program. The school receives Title 1 funds which
allow students to get additional support in the area of reading and
math. In addition, all students participate in WIN (What I Need). Every
day students meet in small multi-age groups to focus on reading/math
skills providing them with additional support or enrichment as
identified through formal and informal assessments.
The Perkins School is a special place.

community, both locally and globally, as well as to prospective new
families who might want to learn more about us.
