Peru Community Schools


The Peru Community Schools district in Indiana consists of 3 schools: 2 elementary schools (Blair Pointe Upper Elementary and Elmwood Primary Learning Center) and 1 high school (Peru Junior/Senior High School). The data reveals a mix of strengths and areas for improvement across the district.

Blair Pointe Upper Elementary stands out as the highest-performing school, outpacing the district and state averages in several ILEARN test subjects. In contrast, Peru Junior/Senior High School has seen a decline in its statewide ranking and SchoolDigger rating, indicating a need for improvement at the high school level. Elmwood Primary Learning Center, with the highest percentage of free/reduced lunch recipients, spends the least per student and lacks recent performance data, suggesting potential resource and opportunity gaps for this high-need school.

Across the district, chronic absenteeism is a concern, particularly at the high school level, which may be impacting student performance. Additionally, the district's racial makeup is predominantly white, with the high school having the most diverse student body. Overall, the data highlights both strengths, such as the performance of Blair Pointe Upper Elementary, and areas for improvement, such as addressing the challenges faced by Peru Junior/Senior High School and Elmwood Primary Learning Center, to ensure equitable educational opportunities for all students in the Peru Community Schools district.
