Payson, AZ schools start early!

Real Estate Broker/Owner with Leslie Prest, Prest Realty, Sales and Rentals in Payson, AZ

country school


Payson schools start much earlier than many. Our schools actually started at the end of July, and are now in full swing. Since we deal with rentals, we see families moving to town who are surprised to find out the schools have started. Here is a link to the Payson School Calendar -looking at it you will see more/longer breaks than many schools.

The Payson School District has a good website, with much information. There are links to each of the individual schools from the District site. Payson has two Elementary Schools (there were three, but they have closed Frontier Elementary), one Middle School, a High School and an alternative High School. They also have started offering classes through a "Virtual Academy".

If you are considering a move to Payson, and have school age children, check out the web site. Our children are now grown, but they (2 sons) went through the Payson school system from Kindergarten through High School, and I can tell you that there ARE some real advantages to being a small district in a small town. I still run into some of my kids' former teachers, and they still remember me and my kids.



If you are moving to Payso please call us. We love to promote our town, and will be happy to answer any questions we can. We deal with both rentals and sales, and can help you with any real estate needs.

Your schools start in July.  WOW.  That is too soon for most kids and their parents I know.  Nice post.

Thanks, Evelyn. I used to teach, I would like the breaks during the year, but I'd hate the short summer.

I love that freshly sharpend pencil. It says it all doesn't it?  And that is an early start - how did they keep the kids from staring out the windows and wishing they were in the sunshine?

Three of my four children attended school in a small town, and it's hard not to compare the two as my daughter enters her junior year.  Right now she's in an English class with 40 other students.  Whew - woe to the children who need extra time and tutoring in a general class setting - there's no such thing as extra time in a large school!  I hope the students of Payson enjoy their teachers and classes and the beauty of the area as we enter the 2011-2012 school year!

I like the concept in a shorter summer, less time for children to forget the information learned the year before. Shorter summer and longer breaks during the school year is a refreshing way to see schooling done. Thank you I enjoyed reading your blog.
