Powell County High School Reviews
My experience at Powell County High School was not very good. In my freshman year of high school there were a total of 17 drop-outs from our school. I feel that this happened because of the fact that many faculty members at this school are corrupt. Here are two prime examples: An English teacher, from my freshman year that was part of the teaching staff, embezzled over $30,000 from school funds and taxes. She has since then been fired. Another example would be that the student secretary got caught sending pornographic images to more than one student. This person still works at the school. One thing I would love to see change about this school is the amount of respect the teachers have for the students. These teachers need to believe and encourage their students to achieve more.
I started to attend Powell County High School in the beginning of my Junior year. They were so accepting of me and were super helpful in getting me started. Fun part was, my first week was spirit week!
My child's school health and safety are currently sufficient, but it doesn't go any further than that. Her school is lacking enough funding to make the school facility an enjoyable work space for learning. The school does not put out enough group student activities to engage the student body, teachers turn their backs to the negative comments exchanged between students and most stall doors in bathrooms don't even have locks. The school may not stand out as an immediate safety risk, but there are most definitely areas that could greatly improve.
