    "I love the Powell School! The kids there seem happy and excited to be there when I visited December. The parents are welcomed there. The staff and administration want parents to be involved with their kids' education through Family Literacy Night and Family Math Night. Getting involved is the best way to improve academic performance. I really enjoyed attended these two nights with my kids. The teachers there want to teach and not just the basics. In addition to the academics, they also help develop the emotional and social lives of the kids. The teachers, administrators and support staff approach to education is the WHOLE child."

    "Everyone at Powell Academy should be commended for your efforts to provide Powell students with wonderful educational opportunities and events. I was very impressed with the Science Fair in November. I was impressed with the projects and the manner in which the students presented themselves. Thank you for inviting parents to participate in this wonderful Science Fair. Congratulations to the Powell administration,Mr. Jordan and Ms. Peagler, and teaching staff for motivating the students to do such excellent work. As a parent I am thankful for all you have done year after year to help my child and support me as a parent by letting me actively participate in my child's educational experience. I am looking forward to the next Powell school event."

    "Powell has committed teachers, dedicated parents and a no nonsense administration. It's an example of a successful neighborhood school. Powell is now in a new state of the art facility and the staff and administration are moving the school in the right direction. As parents we should come together to make sure our children continue to receive a quality education."

    "This school is a disappointment, the principle is rude and does not appreciate unique characteristics in each child. ALL the staff is rude to the parents. We aren't allowed to discuss our concerns regarding school work, ect. and they charge to enroll. My daughter's kindergarden teacher gives assignments that aren't clear to me or my child. 5 thumbs down"
