2013-14 school year was a great improvement for MLP. Dr. Magan has brought many welcomed and needed changes. Staff is courteous and very helpful.

I love this school. My granddaughter has learned so much from each of the teachers that she has had the last 5 years.

My daughter loved this school because she formed great friendships. A plus is that the parental involvement is great, and the after glow committee was amazing to the graduating classes! The teachers of the younger grades seem okay, however, the higher grade you go, the less compassionate the teachers become. I have had my child and her peers tell me often that they are rude, and don't like to explain teachings if they don't understand the first time. Also, we were not fond of the principal, he was very unfriendly and not approachable. I normally don't post negative things, but I am very glad my children are finished with this school.

My Granddaughter transferred to this school from a private school for a better child study team help and input. We are pleased that she seems to have improved in her math and reading skills somewhat, she needs strong help on her comprehension skills in her language arts.

This is a wonderful school for academics and parent and teacher involvement. The students have alot of music education and instrument learning opportunities available to them.

Myron L Powell is very strong in their Language Arts program. However, they expect the 2nd graders to learn very quickly. The school is not very helpful in teaching phonics or working with phonics in second grade. The Math program is very slow and way behind. They are still using traditional math techiques that need to be updated. The school has eliminated the Art, Library and Recess because they did not meet state testing requirements and they are in need of improvement.

My 3 children went to MLP K-8. My baby will graduate 8 grade this year. MLP administation and their teachers should take courses on showing compassion to the kids. One way is how they pick the teams for sports. Instead of trying to give everyone a chance they pick only certain ones. And if any of the teachers kids were in there they would always be on team. The kids that were shy they are always overlooked. Not too many of the teachers would try to bring them out of their shell. The teachers cater to the 'gifted and talented', and to the atheletic ones.

Well, to any parents interested, I was a former student of Myron L. Powell and am currently a Junior at Bridgeton High School. I attended Myron L. Powell for nine years. There I always felt that the teachers weren't just there for their paycheck, and basicly, they made school interesting. They always got the point across, and they always had a trick to it. They had a way to join education and fun at the same time. I can barely remember leaving a class with a frown on my face, and if I did then there was a teacher standing behind me to help change that. I couldn't have been more prepared for highschool, and like anybody my age I wish I could go back.

This is a small but growing school. the students are well taught and there are many extras for the kids. Community and school officals seem to work together for our kids which is rare these days. I have a son in 5th grade and he enjoys school there. I hope the school continues to get support from the parents and community as it grows. Thanks MLP

Myron L. Powell is a wonderful close knit school to send your children. My daughter has been a student there since kindergarten, and she will be starting seventh grade this year. The faculty at Myron L. Powell is wonderful. If your child has a problem understanding an area that they are teaching they will make every effort to insure that your child comprehends it. My daughter had a problem in math this past year, and her math teacher took his lunch into the library and sat with her and went over the math that she was having difficulty with. That's impressive. And there are alot of other teachers there that volunteer alot of their time to the students in our school for all of the extra curricular activities that go on after school hours. Our teachers care alot the students at Myron L. Powell, and I know that when my daughter graduates from there it will a new beginning for her, but probably a very tearful good bye to a group of very special pepole.
