• With a staff of approximately 560, Pearl Public School District takes pride in its efforts to provide a superior educational experience to a diverse population of nearly 4,200 students. The district has five schools serving students in kindergarten through twelfth grade.  Pearl Lower Elementary also includes an ancillary site, funded through federal Title I funds, for four-year-old, pre-kindergarten students who meet the program criteria.  

     

    A factor that has contributed significantly to the success of the school district is the relationship with the community. Together, students, staff, families, and business/community leaders help each student become a lifelong learner, achieve individual goals, and positively impact a global society.  Everyone in Pearl Schools is driven by the belief that excellence is our standard.
