I feel that my time at powdersville high school was very good. When it comes to academics I feel that the school went above and beyond in making sure students grasped each individual subject. The teachers were not only polite but they were understanding and willing to help. Aside from academics, Powdersville High School was extremely involved with extracurricular activities. There was always a fundraiser going on and a fun way to raise the money. Powdersville High school is an exceptional school and I would recommend it for anyone.
My time at Powdersville High School has been an amazing experience for me academically and personally as well. At Powdersville I was able to establish myself as a competitive student for the first time when I was surrounded by incredible academically driven peers and staff of equally supportive teachers. The challenging curriculum I faced in each classroom pushed me to give 100% effort in order to get the grades I knew I was capable of, and the reward, in the end, was that much more gratifying. The support I was given from my teachers really helped me to push myself, whether it was them inviting me to stay after for extra help during lunches or beyond school hours, or giving me extra homework sheets or practice quizzes to ensure the highest grade possible on all of my assignments.
There are a wide variety of extracurricular activities offered at Powdersville High as well that help students to reach out to fellow peers and establish themselves as individuals among the student body.
