Welcome to Payson Elementary School

Message from the Principal

We invite you to become part of our unique learning community. We, the staff at Payson Elementary School, are committed to the academic excellence of our students.

  • We believe that our parents, community and staff contribute to the learning and success of our students.
  • We believe that structure, routine, discipline and the mastery of fundamental academic skills are keys to academic success.
  • We believe that positive relationships between students, staff, parents and community create a positive learning environment.

As the principal of Payson Elementary, I am honored to serve the students, parents, staff and community. I believe that being visible and accessible are the keys to keeping our school running properly. Please contact me if I may be of assistance, and know my door is always open.

Have a great year!
