I went to PMS for my 6th and 7th years of middle school and that was the best time of my life. Man y reviews say this school only cares for high test scores and kids here have too much self-entitlement, but I came here coming from a poor family and never saw any of this. My teachers helped me succeed ...  Read more

I am a former student of Powell. I absolutely loved it there. All the teachers were fantastic and all of the administration were great and cared lots about the students. I would definitely recommend sending your kids there. My academics increased tons through middle school due to the great squad of teachers ...  Read more

Stay very far away from this school if you want your kids to develop healthy relationships with their peers. Most of the kids have a sense of entitlement, and think the world revolves around them. There is a ton of peer pressure, which the administration does nothing about. The principal walks around ...  Read more

My daughter is in her 2nd year at Powell. I am very impressed with one of the counselors and how he handled a situation that could have turned into bullying. There are some good teachers at Powell as well. The administration is terrible. The Principal seems to only be focused on good PR for the ...  Read more

I am a former student and was severely disappointed, even traumatized during my time at Powell. I have always been particularly bright and had little trouble academically. I throughly enjoyed the wide variety of classes available, however socially Powell is brutal. The girls are all highly competitive, ...  Read more

If you want your child to experience cliques, girls wearing make-up at age 11, extreme competitiveness, sink-or-swim attitudes with teachers, and a phony principal--then this is the school for you! I highly recommend checking out other middle schools before subjecting your child to this place. Middle ...  Read more
