School Notes

  • We learn not for school, but for life. 
  • Powhatan School believes that successful education creates lifelong learners who use their knowledge, creativity, and skills to be confident students in an ever-changing world. Learning should be active, authentic, immersive, and purposeful; deeper through interdisciplinary thinking, technical acuity, collaboration, and inquiry-based learning. We do this within the nurturing Pk-8 small school model.
