Open Quote Over all I love this school. Principal all the teachers my daughter has had this far. Office staff and other staff members. Close Quote

Open Quote Powers Ferry is Cobb County's best kept secret! With low student-teacher ratios, dynamic school administrators, and a positive school culture, Powers Ferry is a fabulous place to learn. This is one of the greatest schools Cobb County has to offer! Close Quote

Open Quote This school is constantly growing. Powers Ferry has implemented a staff who is ready and prepared to turn things around. I predict in one year this school will rank top 5 in Cobb County. Close Quote

Open Quote I personally really enjoy how the staff at this school seems to be very friendly and warm to their students and fellow co-workers. When I enter the building, the environment feels warm and welcoming. The office staff/administration is always willing to help parents and students when needed in a friendly manner. Thanks to your staff for making this school feel so inviting! Keep up the great work! Close Quote

Open Quote This school should be ranked one of the worst schools in Cobb County. I have been affiliated with Powers Ferry for almost a decade everything about it is in need of some serious help. The teachers try, however with the lack of parental and administrative help, many find themselves teaching in a defeated mode or looking for a position elsewhere. The principal rules rather than leads. He plays favorites with students, parents, and staff members. The school should put in a revolving door because the student population is far from steady. The attitudes are obnoxious and ungrateful; with expectations of handouts and entitlements. Close Quote

About Student-Teacher Ratio
Student/teacher ratio is calculated by dividing the total number of students by the total number of full-time equivalent teachers. Please note that a smaller student/teacher ratio does not necessarily translate to smaller class size. In some instances, schools hire teachers part time, and some teachers are hired for specialized instruction with very small class sizes. These and other factors contribute to the student/teacher ratio. Note: For private schools, Student/teacher ratio may not include Pre-Kindergarten.
