In Gratitude to Mrs. Anne Bouvet
Anne Bouvet served as All Souls' first principal in the school's second century.
Her leadership was instrumental in establishing All Souls as one of the only two-track language immersion schools in the country,
and her ceaselsss kindness remains critical in making All Souls the loving place it is today.
All Souls traces its origins to 1912, just nine years after the founding of the city of Alhambra in which the school is located.
Almost immediately after it opened, All Souls became a leading school in the Los Angeles and Pasadena areas.
Over the years, thousands of All Souls students in Kindergarten through 8th Grade have gone on to study at selective high schools and universities,
and All Souls alumni have pursued careers ranging from medicine and politics to education, law, business, and clergy or religious.
In advance of All Souls community's 100th birthday in 2012, the school undertook a major process of considering how best to educate children in the new century,
and this process culminated in All Souls closing its doors for two years and reopening in 2012 as one of the only two-track dual language (Mandarin and Spanish) immersion schools in the country.
The 2012–2013 school year was so successful that All Souls' enrollment tripled in 2013–2014, and now we are in the process of growing significantly more.
