    "The school isn't great. The educational content is below par, the majority of teachers only do the bare minimum, and the principal has ridiculous rules and policies. It is, however, one of the best schools in the Knoxville-Powell-Halls area, which makes it both unfortunate and encouraging to go there. A very few teachers do go above and beyond: they do their jobs, they involve their students, they make the learning appealing and interesting. Those few teachers make the high school experience here bearable. We also have the Pipeline tutoring program and several clubs that many different people with many different interests may enjoy. Overall, it's not the best, but it's also not the worst."

    "Powell high school is a decent school but it's not terrible. I enjoyed going there during my high school years. I love the whole idea that students are allowed to graduate early. The teachers are friendly and want to help their students succeed and have outstanding grades. The administration and principal were too strict and restricted a lot of individuality amoung the students. The principal also had strict dress codes that were biased amoung the students, and he picked favorites. The academics at the school were also decent, they were either extremely difficult to understand or extremely easy and taught nothing. The college readiness was ok it was difficult to meet with a guidance counselor to talk about college. I would not go back to Powell high school mainly because I graduated early with nearly perfect grades. But I would encourage people to go to Powell simply because it is a great school and they want their students to succeed."
