My youngest son has been at Powers going on his 2nd year. We transferred to Amherst Exempted Schools from Lorain City Schools when we moved. I can't say enough about Amherst Schools. They have definitely helped my children dramatically. Powers teachers and principal are fantastic. They take the time out to make sure the kids excel. My son was behind on reading, math and a few other things due to a Chinese Immersion program at LCS.... when he went onto 1st grade he was not doing too well. Amherst brought him upto speed, worked with me and we all agreed repeating 1st was going to be the best for my son. It definitely was the best. He is a more confident reader, LOVES math, and will actually complain if he doesn't get enough homework. His self-esteem academically has skyrocketed!

Great school. Very secure and very organized. Teachers are very helpful. The principal is so nice and is on top of things. Great place for kids to get an education. Just sad that we are moving on to another school next year.
