This is our neighborhood school and we could not be happier with it! The kindergarten teachers are the absolute best and I have heard nothing but good things about teachers in other grades! The community is amazing and dedicated - we are so excited to be a part of it. The teachers/parents at Powe really take advantage of every opportunity to create unique and wonderful learning environments (e.g., partnering with Schoolhouse of Wonder to have walking field trips, touring local farms, working with students at Duke and NCSSM to explore science, chess, etc). The afterschool program is fabulous and full of amazing art. Great, great, great school all around!
Very nice school with the teachers so kind and interesting that we love them very much. my kid likes the maths and spelling classes. Thanks for their cares and interesting classes for the multinational students!
I love E.K. Powe because it has become a community in and of itself. I love that within one month of the start of kindergarten, my daughter knew the names of all the teachers and administrators, and they knew hers. I love that they promote many avenues towards learning and try to find the right learning style of every student. I love their inclusivity, their faculty, their administration, their parent community, but mostly the students. And I love that the students love and respect each other. Thank you for this opportunity to share my profound feelings about a truly unique institution.
E.K. Powe is a small school with a big heart. Dedicated teachers and committed parents create a great community for teaching children. It's a wonderful place to be.
It serves a diverse neighborhood with many interesting programs and it is a partner with Duke University to improve student achievement and build town-gown relations.
EK Powe teachers are very dedicated and love their students and families. The school has a very diverse population which makes for a wonderful atmosphere of tolerance and acceptance. Keep working hard soaring eagles...you will continue to SOAR!
