Perley opened in 1951. The land was donated by Alexis Coquillard, and the school was named after Maude Perley Coquillard. In 2008 Perley became a fine arts magnet school for students in kindergarten through fourth grade.
Perley Primary Fine Arts Academy is focused on providing students with meaningful experiences and exposure to all art forms; with guest artists, performance opportunities, an integrated curriculum, and an extensive After-School Arts program. Perley students demonstrate their learning in a variety of ways and are ever changing. Perley prepares students for the 21st Century with global readiness. We believe that "every child is an artist" and offer transportation to ALL the artists within the SBCSC district.
