We are new to H. Clarke Powers this year and have been nothing but impressed since our very first interaction with the Principal, Glenn Lockwood. We were warmly welcomed from the minute we walked in. Mr. Lockwood stopped what he was doing and sat down with us to get to know our children. Mr. Lockwood is more involved and hands on than any Principal we have ever encountered before, and we have been to public, charter and private schools. The teachers are excellent and highly qualified, caring, knowledgeable and communicative. This school offers extracurricular activities and sports that past private schools we have attended did not offer. P.E. is offered three times a week for all grades as well as music class once a week for all grades. My kids are thriving and getting involved and trying new things they never have before. This school has an amazing garden tended to by garden docents and regular farmers markets. We have an incredible PTO and a very involved parent body. H. Clarke Powers is hands down the best public school around with undoubtedly the most amazing principal, teachers and office staff. We feel very blessed to be a part of this school. :-)
My granddaughter goes there and she is a 4.0 student. It is a great school. She is very well rounded and very bright. It keeps her challenged.
Parent participation is phenomenal. From my daughter's class parents alone we have one mother who started a class garden program and school farmer's market, one who heard about cuts to PE and is starting a fundraiser to save the program (the PE teacher, btw is the most amazing I've come across), one mother who started a school-wide clothes swap, and another who is organizing beauticians to start a hair-cutting fundraiser. We're so thrilled to be a part.
Great teachers, great facility, great parent participation, overall working hard to provide a great education in very tough times. Whole school system from Principle to Janitors working to provide great education and environment for the kids and families. Very interactive with all entities.
Grandchildren getting the greatest one on one training with love and understanding. Making learning fun
The principal and teachers care about the students. you can tell the impact he principal has on the students by the reactions i see when they see him. I know my child adores him, he is active and involved in everything that goes on in that school
H. Clarke Powers is an amazing school with an amazing staff. It is a private school feel in a public school.
H. Clarke Powers is a fabulous elementary school. Teachers, principal and staff are focused on the education, growth, health and happiness of each student. Respect and caring is nurtured among the students. There is tremendous parent involvement and collaboration with the teachers. Students have the opportunity for sports, art, performing arts, community volunteerism and other activities that help make a well-rounded person. There is tremendous pride in everyone affiliated with the school. Kids respect each other, the teachers and the campus. Our children are very happy and thriving.
We love this school! The teachers are wonderful and the principal Mr.Lockwood is very involved,has a big heart, and is an excellent leader! We are so fortunate to live in a small town with such a great school! OUR KIDS LOVE THE SCHOOL TOO!
My son was a part of the very first class of H. Clarke Powers. It was a wonderful experience for him and for my wife and I. Glenn Lockwood is the best Principal in Placer County....I have no idea what 'submitted by a parent' is talking about.
Everything about this school is great, except that the principal is terrible.I would not reccomend H. Clarke Powers
We moved to Loomis 1 year ago. My child (as a new student) was welcomed with open arms from teachers, principal, office personell, students and parents. The Principal is very involved and caring. The parents are great and very involved and the students are the best behaved students I have every seen. The leadership at this school is outstanding.
Principal knocked our socks off when he spent an hour of his time to give us a personal tour of his school. School is new and in beautiful rural yet convenient setting. Kindergarten teacher is top-notch. I don't sense the 'clique' issues parents often complain about at other schools. Quality of education is outstanding.
Principal & Teachers are fantastic! Very involved with the children and school programs. We have been very happy at H. Clarke Powers.
Principal is very involved in all aspects of this school. Quality teachers throughout each grade level. Parent participation lacking slightly.
