Education

The people of Perryton are proud of their school system, and provide the financial support to field winning sports teams and to develop fine music and academic programs. The school system includes the Frank Phillips-Perryton College, one high school, a junior high, an intermediate school and an elementary school.

Graduates from the Perryton schools have achieved distinction in such fields as medicine, science, business, education and research. The community believes that a balanced, quality education is necessary to the future success of the students who pass through the educational process.

Opportunities for continuing education are present in the form of college courses offered from Frank Phillips College - Allen Campus, located here in Perryton. This newly completed campus facility opened for the fall semester on August 22, 2005. Also, a wide variety of college courses are offered to Perryton residents through the DECANET system which transmits lectures via microwave directly from the Frank Phillips campus to local classrooms located at Perryton High School.

In addition, many add to, or complete their college training by attending on-campus classes at Panhandle State University at Goodwell, Oklahoma.

Additional educational opportunities are available at Seward County Community College in Liberal, Kansas, at Amarillo College (116 miles) in Amarillo, Texas or West Texas A&M University (143 miles) in Canyon, Texas.

The Satellite Center in Perryton is an excellent facility that serves the educational and developmental needs of the learning disabled adults of the community.
