Almost Like Home Schooling, but better. I was quit surprised. I will update if anything changes.

My son started going to this school in the '10-'11 school year as a first grader. His teacher, Ms Hall, was excellent and worked with him. He is now reading on a 5th grade level. He has severe ADHD and I have to say this school is wonderful for kids with special needs as parental involvement is strongly encouraged and they have an active PTO. My son went to a school that didn't care about anything but scores and discouraged parents becoming involved in their children's education and I have to say this school is a MAJOR improvement on where he was attending. When my son was not performing well academically or was acting out the teacher would express her concerns to my husband and I and would work with us to help him improve his scores and his behavior. I couldn't ask for a better school for my son to be in and to be involved in as a parent.

I am completely happy with my experiences with PES. I have had 4 children come through this school, and they have some of the most wonderful and caring teachers imaginable. I always feel welcome and even encouraged to come to the school and into the classroom if I ever want to visit. I absolutely love K12 Portal and I think that this program along with email makes it so easy to communicate any concerns with the teachers and to stay up-to-date on what my child is doing. I can't imagine what could be done to make this school any better.

Powhatan Elementary was my home for over 20 years until my retirement a year ago. PES is a great collaboration between teachers, parents, and administrators. Ours is a school where every child counts.

My daughter has attended PES for JK, K, 1st, and 2nd grade and I have LOVED every one of her teachers. They have been caring, encouraging, and loving with all of the children. Administration is good, although there needs to be more communication when situations arise. On the whole, I am very satisfied and would gladly recommend this school to all parents. I hope things will be just as wonderful at Flatrock next year!

I have had a very bad experience with powhatan elementary. I have had no problems with the teachers, mostly bad choices in the administration end. The music, art, sports and other extra curricular activities seem to be up to par. Level of parental involvement seems good. However it is overcrowded and student to staff ratio is not good.
