Moving to Powell Ohio: Powell, OH Schools


If you have children, and getting them to a specific elementary school or middle school is important to you, then beware.

There are currently 4 high schools in the Olentangy School District, with plans for several more. Further, the map that determines what school you go to is often changed. Therefore, if you plan on sending your child to a specific school, then please keep in mind that the school your neighborhood’s children will go to may change.

Further, living in Powell alone won’t guarantee that your child will go to Olentangy Schools. Some neighborhoods will send their children to Dublin schools or Worthington Schools, depending on their location.
