Powell is a great place to grow up. I am very happy with the situation that I was raised in! The people throughout the town of powell are great. The few things I would change is add more thing that are teen friendly throughout the area. The schools within the area are great. Academically and athletically they are better than the norm.

Wonderful town, full of great families and involved parents who care about their kids education and extra curricular. The city is very clean with beautiful winding streets, and well cared for landscaping. Beautiful golf courses add to the beauty of the town, and add value to the area. Great selection of restaurants, and close to Polaris and Easton shopping malls. Excellent schools with amazing teachers from Elementary to high school. Beautiful school buildings that promote learning and entice hard work.
Powell is a wonderful place to grow up in. The schools are hard, but the community is so loving. Recently, our community came together in a time of need and put blue ribbons all over Powell. This was in honor of the families who passed from a plane crash. It's little things like this that make Powell so great and make me happy to be apart of it. Powell is a very clean area with a lot to do. Driving through Powell makes me realize how blessed I am to be apart of an amazing community. Everything is so close to each other. For example, the schools. Which is definitely a major perk. Overall, Powell is a wonderful city and I couldn't be happier.
