When the state of Ohio was chartered, it mandated that every township set aside land for schools.The result was the classic one room schoolhouses that were built in the mid to last half of the eighteenth century and became the educational foundation of our state.

Perry Township had 10 such schools within its boundaries. The contributions of these schools as well as the contributions of the people who taught and learned within these walls have lifted this township, this state, and this nation to immeasurable heights. The foresight and commitment of our founding fathers and mothers to education has molded this township's greatest resource...its people. For it is only through the hard work, and dedicated service of educated citizens that this great township has developed from the Black Swamp that it once was, to the agriculturally rich land that it is today.
