Paysetter Night!

Payson High Schools drill team danced the night away along with many other young dancers from around the Payson area. The night began with a presentation of the 2017-2018 Paysetters and their companions. Following their presentation, the girls of the night performed their Epic Hip Hop. Paysetters smiled through their Camp Dance. After Camp Dance, some of the other studios; Limelight, Step In Time, Steps PAC, Cindy’s Dance, and The Ridge Dance Academy took over the floor and also flooded the audience with “oohs” and “awws.”

Protecting our Pride

Attention! Students of PHS, we have the ability to bring others to victory. Students at Payson High School have been victorious in many sports for several years, and every time there is always a picture perfect crowd of students whooping, cheering, and supporting our teams. We need to understand that we play a part in every event when we, as classmates, support one another. In the end we create something beautiful: we become one.

Terrible Parking

Finding a Parking Spot at Payson High School is like trying to find water in the desert. At least that is what students think. PHS actually has a lot of parking around the school, but students don’t want to take the time to look around. Both students and teachers are frustrated. They can park in the actual student parking lot, but a lot of the time it is filled to the brim with cars. Other places the students can park are behind the Auto Shop or even in the Seminary parking lot.
