Welcome!

Welcome to the Powel School Website!

Samuel Powel is a wonderful Kindergarten to Fourth Grade school in Powelton Village, in the heart of University City.  We are one of West Philadelphia’s premier public elementary schools. We believe that our students can be empowered to learn and reach their full potential in a safe, nurturing, and student centered environment. We know that our students can achieve when they are motivated, engaged,  and valued. By building self-efficacy through patience and guidance, our students will attain academic and behavioral excellence and build core values which will allow them to grow to be respectful, responsible, and successful members of society.

Samuel Powel Elementary-
A small school, with GREAT expectations!
