Adam Clayton Powell, Jr. Paideia Academy Reviews

Everybody and everything in Paideia Academy was great. I wouldn't change anything about that school for anything in the world. I started Paideia Academy in Kindergarten and graduated from 8th grade there too. Through my years there, I never had to worry about not having a support system. Everybody supported everybody and there was always love, support, and determination in everybody.

I attended Powell throughout my elementary school years and I can say that I learned a lot. The teachers were very helpful, and in the school or actually felt like nobody was left behind.
