As a school leader, you can upload photos, describe school programs, and more with an Official school profile.

My granddaughter attended Powell Elementary from Kinder through fifth grade, and it is a great school. We found her teachers to be caring and interested in the students and their education. We were disappointed when the principal left the end of the 2012-13 year to help open a new elementary school. Hopefully, the new principal will lead with the same positive energy and leadership skills. I would not hesitate to recommend the school.

The school is situated in a decent neighborhood, but leadership is unsatisfactory and the lack of accountability for misbehavior is unacceptable. My child (1st grade) was attacked by a group of older students in a bathroom; efforts to ascertain the identity of the students was minimal ("The fourth graders were in the library near that restroom during that time period; we think it was a few of them"). When he returned to the classroom and told the teacher about the incident, she never reported it to the office or even sent him to the nurse to be examined! Her reasoning: "He didn't seem upset enough to report it." No repercussions for her either.

Powell Elementary has the best teachers I have met. They care about their students and go over and beyond in helping students succeed in school and guide them to be successful in their lives.

This is an excellent school and I know that the Principal really loves the children. She is totally involved and it shows. My daughter went here for Kinder and she excelled completely, she is actually Gifted and the teachers at this school were totally supportive.
