On behalf of the faculty and staff at Powell Middle School, I would like to welcome you to our school.
At Powell, it is our belief that all students can achieve at high levels when they are exposed to rigorous, relevant, and engaging work. We know that schools cannot acquire and sustain success in isolation; therefore, we value collaboration with parents, community members, and other Powell Stakeholders. Our faculty and staff members are committed to going beyond excellence to provide every student with a quality education. We are a community of learners who expect nothing less than the best from our students and ourselves. it is our goal to "strive for proficiency and beyond for all students."
We welcome your comments, feedback and suggestions as you visit our school. If you have any questions, please contact us.
