Payson elementary My oldest autistic son attended this school an number of parents have complaints about the consistent neglect of our children . My son tripped over another students chair and 4 hours and 2 teachers later they did not notice or report his noticeable limp. I would never recommend any responsible parent to allow their child to attend this institution. I can back this up with medical bills and pictures. Thankyou
My children have been attending Payson elementary since 2006 (which totals 14 teachers so far!). My husband and I have never been disappointed with this school. The teachers are experienced & highly qualified. The new principal (2013) is outstanding. He is young & has a fresh perspective & has made a lot of positive changes. The only complaint I have is that PES is a bit overcrowded this year (2014), to which the district is aware & in the works currently to modify the campus. The only real problem with this is that the lunch room is small and so cafeteria time is limited & crowded. I noticed a previous review about disappointment in their special needs program: PES's special needs curriculum is no different than the rest of the state of Az: it's all the same wherever you go in the state.
My daughters second grade teacher is wonderful. I like the music and computer programs offered, too. However, this district has a terrible problem with its special services department. Many kids needing special education are overlooked. The State has been notified of the problems.
