Overall, Powell Academy was a decent place for my child's education. With that said, however, Powell Academy was riddle with problems. I spent a few time frustrated. The main problem lies partly with CPS( Chicago Public School) set up. This is a K-8. This is not efficient for the upper grade levels, ...  Read more

I love the Powell School! The kids there seem happy and excited to be there when I visited December. The parents are welcomed there. The staff and administration want parents to be involved with their kids' education through Family Literacy Night and Family Math Night. Getting involved is the best way ...  Read more

Everyone at Powell Academy should be commended for your efforts to provide Powell students with wonderful educational opportunities and events. I was very impressed with the Science Fair in November.

Powell has committed teachers, dedicated parents and a no nonsense administration. It's an example of a successful neighborhood school. Powell is now in a new state of the art facility and the staff and administration are moving the school in the right direction. As parents we should come together to ...  Read more

I have had a horrible experience with Powell. The principal & his administration have a lot of issues that they bring to the school. My child HAD been there for 5 years & I only met 2 teachers who really wanted to help the students. I would not send my child to this school if I had a choice.

I am very displeased with the school. They are extremely unprofessional, they discourage parent involvement, they do not care about the children; they yell and talk negatively to the children. The administators have horrible attitudes, some teachers are unorganized and uptight. They are not preparing ...  Read more

I concur. The administrators aren't warm and friendly. You are treated like and outsider. When I pick up my child in the afternoon, the children are wild and out of control on a daily basis. There is no order. Some days you are made to feel like the enemy. I feel this needs to change, now.

This school is a three ring circus. The administrators are unprofessional and tackless. The teachers try to do their best, but are not supported by the principal and vice principal, whom lack integrity. There are no extra-activities. Teachers and parents are automatically made to feel like enemies ...  Read more
