I go used to go this school and it has just gotten a new lunchroom. Though it is VERY old It is still in pretty good shape. The teachers are nice and they are very lenient on things such as due dates and grades. If I could change one thing I would add a foreign language as a related art.

Powell Middle school is by far the worst school I have ever seen. I have raised my children in Powell all their lives and now we have to move just because of the problems we are having at PMS. This is so sad. They are strict, most teachers do not care, the school is way to small, there isn't lockers ...  Read more
