Powell High School Reviews
Powell High School has given me more opportunities than I thought possible to prepare me for my future. Not only did I receive two free ACT tests, we were also given an ACT prep book free of charge. They offered many AP classes that challenged me daily, and all the teachers I have had at Powell have the students' best interest at heart. However, the administration did not respond to certain situations in completely profession ways, and they were sometimes found to contradict themselves. They have been very strict on tardies and absences which is to help us prepare for our future jobs. Overall, my experience at Powell High School was pleasant due to the attentive teachers, college preparation, and challenging courses.
Powell High is a good school! The teachers are very caring and involved. The school is constantly working on getting all the students to get involved and to feel involved. The Powell community has been through a lot over the past year with a couple of former students passing away in tragic ways. The administration has tried its best to kept the student, faculty and the community's spirits up.
The school isn't great. The educational content is below par, the majority of teachers only do the bare minimum, and the principal has ridiculous rules and policies. It is, however, one of the best schools in the Knoxville-Powell-Halls area, which makes it both unfortunate and encouraging to go there. A very few teachers do go above and beyond: they do their jobs, they involve their students, they make the learning appealing and interesting. Those few teachers make the high school experience here bearable. We also have the Pipeline tutoring program and several clubs that many different people with many different interests may enjoy. Overall, it's not the best, but it's also not the worst.
