The Utah Film Commision--which liaisons with the film industry to bring movie-making to Utah locations--recently highlighted Payson High School on their portfolio of possible venues for movies. Check out our PHS profile HERE.
As part of Utah College Application Week (UCAW), Payson High School is hosting a College and Financial Aid Night (rebranded as “Beyond High School”) on Wednesday, October 9th from 4:00-7:00 p.m. The goal of UCAW is to provide every high school senior the opportunity to complete at least one college or university application during the school day, with a particular focus on students who would be the first in their families to attend college, low-income students, or students who may not have otherwise considered applying.
Want to join a club? Or have something to do after school? Payson High has the perfect thing for you. The club rush is going to be held on Wednesday, September 11th, in an extended lunch period in the courtyard.
Some clubs that will be there are the Gender and Sexualities Alliance Club, Drama Club, FCCLA, ASL, Magic Club, DECA, LIA, O.U.R. Club, HOPE Squad, Model UN, PHS Rodeo Club, Science Olympiad/Science Fair, Bagpipe Band, Chivalry and Character Building, HOSA, Key Club, Musical Theatre, College Tours/ACT, and Students Against Slavery.
It's only the second day of school but you can bet that teachers are already diving right into teaching.
A perfect example of that can be seen in Mr. Kadish's ASL classes. He loves to help students start learning ASL immediately by not talking at all during the first few days in class. He wants to show students that they can learn without their voice.
Here are some photos of students engaging in the learning process. Thanks Mr. Kadish!
At Payson High School, we are so excited that the school year has finally begun. Our faculty and staff have been anxiously preparing for our students with enthusiasm, care, and skill. And it's finally show time! Our hallways are now full of the expectant faces of tomorrow's leaders. At PHS, we will give them a 1st class education. Our theme this year is "We Walk As Lions!" Together, we will make this school year a masterpiece.
Let's do this, Lions!

BYU is recruiting people to participate in a scientific study on the human brain.
