My daughter is a student at The Payne Academy. We have been very pleased with the quality of education that she has received as well as the opportunity to remain "integrated" on a regular high school campus. My daughter has always been in encapsulated gifted education and so the transition to high school was a concern. This program does a great job of providing a curriculum that is challenging.

Peggy Payne Academy is part of the Tempe Union High School District and is a gifted school that is housed on the McClintock High School campus - "a school within a school" started in 2000. I am a parent of a child who attends the Peggy Payne Academy.
