  • Reviewed by Parent/Guardian on November 13, 2008
  • Rating: 5 (5 / 5) Flag as inappropriate
  • Poverello has been a tradition in our family since the school opened and we are still very happy with the academics that the children get from the Sisters. The school is everything that you would want for your young child when they start at 3 years old and they are so well prepared when they graduate at 5 years old they are doing work that 1st grader would be doing in other schools.
