Faculty - Payson High School

Hello, My name is Jeff Simon and I am the Principal of Payson High Schools here in Payson Arizona. My wife and 3 kids have been in Payson since 2013 where I served as Assistant Principal of Payson High School through the 2016-2017 school year. In the 2017-2018 school year, I was promoted to Principal of Payson High School. In 2020-2021, Payson High School, Payson Center for Success and Payson Center For Success Online became one school which dubbed my position as Principal of Payson High Schools.  During this time I have been lucky enough to be named NASSP/ ASA Arizona’s Principal of the Year 2020-2021 and NASSP/ ASA Arizona’s Assistant Principal of the Year 2016-2017.  

After graduating high school from Craig Colorado, I went to Regis University where I graduated with a Bachelors of Art degree in Social Studies, Secondary Education in 2000. In 2006 I continued my education by earning two masters degrees from Walden University. Both degrees are Masters of Science in Education but in 2007 I graduated with an emphasis in Technology and Curriculum and in 2009 with an emphasis in Educational Leadership.

It’s Great to be a Longhorn!!
