  • This is a wonderful school my son (...) graduated from here, my daughter (...) will be graduating soon and my baby will be starting nursery soon. Academically it is the best you will find. The sister do a fantastic job of also helping with the spiritual formation of the children. The children come out of the school very well rounded. I highly recommend this school any time.

  • The school is fabulous in every way. My daughter loves going to school. I would highly recommend the school. I give it 5 apples, even though last year her ta wasn't the greatest. I believe the rating prior might be speaking about the same ta. I agree that she shouldn't have been in a classroom, but I wouldn't take an apple away from Poverello. They know what they are doing, they didn't ask for her to be back. Thank you Sisters!

  • I was a student of Poverello a long time ago, as a soon to be graduating college student I couldn't agree more with most of the rating posted. After the completion of this shool I soon went onto a magnet school and from there to a california distunguished magnet school. Graduating with high honors and being the President of many school clubs. I believe it is true that a great eduction starts when you are young and this is the greatest school to start with
