This is an excellent school because of its hard working teachers. Mrs. C Jones has prepared my 1st grader for 3rd grade. My daughter talks about the things she has learned daily. She is always excited about school. R Payne is the best school in the 32209 zip code!
I currently have 2 children enrolled at Rufus Payne. One child in Pre-k , Ms. Schick and one child in Kindergarten , Ms. Smith. They are doing great and have wonderfully commited teachers. Also the classroom aids are excellent, Ms. Gamble and Ms. Palmer.
Rufus Payne has an excellent 4th grade staff and kindergarten staff. The school grounds are always clean and safe and the cafeteria is well maintained. The students do not prsent any extreme behavior but are mannerable.
