Powhatan would not be surviving if it was not for the lack of private schools around. The majority of teachers and faculty are very political and if you or your children do not play their game your child will be a target.

Powhatan is not like it use to be. Our children currently attend Powhatan. Unfortunately in this area you are limited on good schools so Powhatan is the lesser of two evils. Kindergarten- not impressed. The teachers seem more worried about catching children doing something bad rather than catching them ...  Read more

Powhatan has many wonderful qualities and some areas of opportunity. I do find that the curriculum is challenging and my child is learning a great deal. There is blatant favoritism and teachers would do well to treat all their students with respect and kindness. The school should be building the self-esteem ...  Read more

So far, Powhatan has exceeded our expectations in every way. Although both my husband and I have public school backgrounds, we chose Powhatan based on our interaction with the upper school students during an extensive tour. The students were articulate, confident and amazingly at ease speaking to prospective ...  Read more
