Payne has a great legacy. My grandmother taught there for 31 years (she wrote the school song) and my mother has been teaching there for 15.

Payne Elementary is a wonderful school. Great staff and faculty. The Principle, Nancy Cisler, is exceptional. She truly cares about all of her 'children' and the devoted faculty and staff. Parent/teacher communication is very good at this school. I feel my children lucky to attend such a great school.

I have sent two of my children to Payne and would recomend it to all. The teachers are wonderful. the principal is very caring and she manages to know almost every student in the school. My daughter loves her Payne Panthers.

Me and my husband loved this school.The teachers are kind and compassionate. The principal & staff are very supportive.In my sons 5th grade the teachers are very involved with children and keep good contact with us. Traffic is not bad either. I like the location.

Really enjoyed this school. My children enjoyed their teachers. I was especially fond of Mrs. Chamberlain (1st grade). The parents at this school are pretty involved. The traffic getting in and out each day is not to bad compared to other schools we've been too. All around I give this school a B+.
