    "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"

    "I have had a horrible experience with Powell. The principal & his administration have a lot of issues that they bring to the school. My child HAD been there for 5 years & I only met 2 teachers who really wanted to help the students. I would not send my child to this school if I had a choice."

    "I am very displeased with the school. They are extremely unprofessional, they discourage parent involvement, they do not care about the children; they yell and talk negatively to the children. The administators have horrible attitudes, some teachers are unorganized and uptight. They are not preparing our children for success."

    "I concur. The administrators aren't warm and friendly. You are treated like and outsider. When I pick up my child in the afternoon, the children are wild and out of control on a daily basis. There is no order. Some days you are made to feel like the enemy. I feel this needs to change, now."
