It was refreshing to read more encouraging news about the quality of education at our high school (Payson High graduation rate rises 15 percent).
As stated in the article, the four-year statistics were entirely under the leadership of the previous high school administration, and I would like to publicly thank Mr. Sandoval, Mr. Fruth and Mr. Lobik for their outstanding efforts to reverse the dropout rate at PHS.
As we have heard often from our board and Mr. O’Brien, leadership is critical to the success of our schools, PHS was very fortunate to have the leadership team they had during the turnaround of the last four years.
Thanks again guys. You will always be greatly appreciated by many.
