I loved my time at Powhatan. The bullying prevention program, however, needs work. The teachers were amazing, many of whom I still talk to even today!

I loved Powhatan! I graduated in 2018 from the high school and did all years of schooling there. It is an AMAZING community, it is like family!
The Powhatan County Public School district is a well managed and clean school system. The teachers do their job and prepare us for life, while also preparing us for further academic exploration. The music and arts departments are highly talented and are fenomenal addition to the school
