Mindful of the need to articulate the level of comprehension in poetry of the learners, the study on level of comprehension in poetry of the Grade 5 pupils of the private schools in Surigao City was conducted. The study made use of the descriptive research using survey technique, with a researcher-made questionnaire containing 4 poems with 30-item test, pilot tested to 30 pupils from Clementino V. Diez Memorial Central Elementary School (Cronbach Alpha= .91). A population of 133 Grade 5 pupils from St. Paul University Surigao, Surigao Education Center, and Surigao Sun Yat Sen Elementary School were taken as participants. T-test was used in testing differences which found no significant differences between the profile and the levels of comprehension in poetry, thus, being boys or girls does not affect the level of poetry comprehension. However, teacher should undergo trainings, seminars, and workshops on comprehension strategies in poetry focusing on the levels found to be low and school administrators are encouraged to support programs- such as the Saturday Remedial Classes on reading comprehension in poetry.
