David A. Perdue Primary School is my second home.  The faculty and staff are dedicated to the students and families that we serve.  Our Mission is to build a community of learners.  Our upperclassmen leave us after second grade, but many of them have already started to demonstrate leadership ability.  Our Vision is to be intellectually invincible.  Together there is nothing we can’t learn.  Every child can learn and we strive each day to take positive steps forward.  We want our children to take control of their learning and feel that there is nothing they can't learn.  Our staff is 100% highly qualified and I believe they are the best around.  We believe that we all must come together to raise happy, healthy children that are ready to be the leaders of our future.
