Principal's Message: We are PHS!

We are Safe, We are Respectful, We are Responsible, We are PHS!

Dear PHS Parents,

I am very excited to start the 2018-2019 school year at Powhatan High School. I feel very fortunate to work for such a dedicated faculty and fine group of students. I look forward to another successful school year in promoting deeper learning, student engagement and continuing Powhatan High School’s traditions of academic excellence, enthralling fine arts, competitive athletics, and world-class career and technical education. 

This year the faculty and staff of Powhatan High School will be focusing on rolling out our PBIS (Positive Behavioral Interventions and Supports) framework. The PBIS framework is being implemented in order to support the academic, social, emotional, and behavioral needs of all students. Through this framework, all faculty, staff, and students will learn and continue to develop what it means to be safe, respectful, and responsible in all settings at Powhatan High School.

The continued success of Powhatan High School is the result of our dedicated and caring teachers and support staff who work tirelessly in providing instruction that is inspiring, empowering, and innovative.
