I am very pleased to have done my student teaching at Powell Middle School and Cody Middle School. The learning and school enviroment is very positive, I would want my children attending Powell and or Cody Schools.

As a student at this school. I think this is a real great school. But there Discipline is sort of strict. Like if a few students does something wrong then sometimes the whole grade the students are in get punished. Other than that the school is great. But they need a little more sports for students. They should let the Sixt Graders Participate in some sports. It might Help our games.
