School Reviews

5   4/10/2012
This school was wonderful for my son. He transferred here far behind and was in danger of not graduating. He was finally ready to work toward that goal, and Payette High School staff really worked with him. He was surprised at the support. He even told me, "Mom, they think I can do it." He did, and I am grateful for help and support they provided.
