Mrs. Mary Jo Bowersox (Sp-Z)

Welcome Perry Students and Parents!

I am the counselor for students with last names beginning with Sp-Z for grades 9-12.  I am also the Dual Enrollment, PSEOP, and Associate of Arts  coordinator and Department Head.  My teaching experiences are varied…I taught at RG Drage, Akron East High School, GlenOak High School, Grundschule in Poggenhagen, Germany and varied substitute work in Indianapolis, Indiana and I have called Perry High School my home since 2005.  I earned my Bachelors Degree and Masters Degree from The University of Akron. Counseling is my passion and it is my hope that I can help my students reach their maximum potential.

Please feel free to call (330-477-3486 extension 2801) or email me ( ) with any questions or concerns.  I do my best to return your call or email as quickly as possible.

It is our goal at PHS Guidance/Student Services to help each student succeed.  We believe strong communication is the key.  If a student wishes to see his/her counselor a counselor request form must be completed and submitted to the Guidance Office (available in the Guidance Office).  The counselor will address the concern by note or call the student down to his/her office to speak with the student.

Remember…it is not having everything you want…but wanting everything you have…and if you keep doing the same thing you will keep getting the same result!  Let us help you get to where you want to go and be the best you can be!
