Payette High School Reviews
The biggest thing that I like about Payette High School, is that as soon as they see you excel and have great potential in your first years, they talk to you about furthering your education and trying to make that easy during your high school years. I am one of those students that got that opportunity and now I will be going to a local college while still being in high school, and guess what? everything is going to be paid for through the advanced opportunities program for high school students!
Overall, I have had an above average experience with PHS, but I can see that some things need to change. We have unrealistic policies in place for our dress code and cell phone policies. We also have an uninvolved school board, and we do not have a superintendent at the moment, which means we are lacking necessary leadership. Staff is more focused on getting students in trouble for wearing the wrong color of shirt than making student turn their work in. We have a low involvement level for students, and staff do not make students feel like school is important. PHS needs to realize that students often times have too many other problems going on outside of school, and that school isn't always a main priority for some. Teachers and other faculty members need to help their students more than aim to get kids in trouble, and that just isn't their goal.
They don's listen to the students or the parents. They do very minimum repair work at the school in hopes that a new one will be built, which they got denied for. In winter time, the heaters rarely work and the ac will actually turn on randomly. If we get a lot of heavy rain, the hallway leading to the cafeteria will flood. I just want the higher up staff to actually let students and parents be involved in the changes they want to make, and to also have the school fixed. The middle school got a new parking lot, when there was barely any damage to it, but the high school has so many pot holes, and pieces of the road missing, and they refuse to fix that.
