Principal's Message

Welcome to Payson Center for Success High School!

Payson Center for Success High School is committed to providing a positive, challenging, and academic learning environment, for all students. Our goal is to provide learning activities which require high levels of critical thinking and reasoning, accompanied by the application of learning to real-world situations. Along with a strong academic program, reading and writing skills are evident in all content areas.

PCS services a diverse student population.  Students chose to attend PCS for many reasons which may include but are not limited to the following; behind in credits, returning back to high school after dropping out, learning disabled, 504 accommodations, behavioral and/or emotional needs, need for a modified school day, accelerated learning, and/or students with dependants.  All students who attend PCS are an essential part of creating his/her unique education plan specific to his/her needs, goals and aspirations.    

Our teachers are here to provide continuous support through direct instruction, tutorials, and one-on-one instruction to aid students in their academic success. Each staff member at PCS is an experienced and dedicated professional who is committed to helping all students reach their full potential.

Student success is not a matter of luck but is accomplished through planning, organization, goal setting, effort determination, and a positive support system, with parents/guardians being an integral part.

I look forward to another successful school year and believe that communication is the best way to create strong relationships. Please ask questions and share your thoughts to make the year the best that it can be for your son/daughter and your family as a whole.
