Quiet school with little problems. Doesn't appear to be strong on academics or PTO. I'd say it's an average school...safe but not challenging.

Potomack Intermediate School is a very good school. It taught me alot of things, and the teachers actually made learning fun. All together, Very good school.

My son is in his first year at Potomack, and so far I think it is a great school. The security they have in place is awesome. The teacher keeps up with the weekly reports on Edline. Overall, I am impressed and my son is doing very well there.

Potomack was a nice school. The teachers were very easy to work with. The only complaint I had was all the signing every night in the planner. This 'responsibility' was totally a waste of time as it did not carry over into the middle school.
