There is a lot of concern for every student at Alverno! My daughter and my niece both attended and they were given opportunities I fear they would not have had in a different environment. I am confused as to the negative comments because our experience with this school has been truly amazing and a blessing.

Alverno is an excellent school. My daughter is a sophomore and she chose Alverno two years ago because the students were so welcoming to her. Now that she is an Alverno student herself, she considers campus is her second home. Academically she is excelling and socially she is thriving. She loves ...  Read more

Please do not waste your money. If you live in a good public school district, research the possibility of sending your child there. My daughter needed help with math and her math teacher was not available after school because she had children of her own and needed to get home right away. I do understand ...  Read more

I love Alverno because I feel like this isn't just a school but really is a community. The teachers are really great and are very interested in what they teach and are very inspiring. I really enjoy being in Book Club and that there is a club for everyone at Alverno!

Alverno was probably the most important part of my journey to find who I am. I was able to grow and develop as a person and in my academics. I love all of the faculty and staff. They personally invested in my growth and I would not be as confident or as prepared for college if I did not go to Alverno.

Alverno High school was a good school when I attended in the 80's. Now it is a Fantastic school in 2012 and that is why my daughter attends currently!~
