Pilgrim is an awesome school... from the small class sizes, to the rigorous academics, to the supportive community of parents... it has been a perfect atmosphere in the city for my kids

I love this school, but it's falling apart. It has really nice and wonderful teachers, but it still changes as we speak.

I have been to 'Pilgrim' for 6 years now. The teachers are wonderful, kind, nice, very understanding and help with any problem. (I recommend Ms. Tighe!) The education has been wonderful, and I've learned a lot. If you have difficulties with homework, learning, etc. they will help you. The kids are VERY nice and get along well. I recommend greatly to go to this wonderful school. The school may be small, but we learn a lot. The teachers, parents, etc. help the needy by doing fun raisers, food drives, and other ways. (The kids pitch in too!) We learn many subjects some places might not have like Spanish and Technology. Every year grades PK-3 do a annual operetta. (or play) Classes 4-6 take turns and do a educational play. (Social Studies.) I have stayed there Kindergarten-5th grade and so far, I have loved every second of it. -Student

My child has been going to Pilgrim for nine years and is about to graduate. From the moment I walked into the school all those years ago, I was struck by the family-like atmosphere. Everyone student and adult alike--seemed upbeat and friendly. Though I was a bit concerned initially about the small school size, I would now say that it s absolutely ideal for young children. The ability to grow up within such secure confines is a wonderful gift to give a child. The feeling is almost like that of an extended family. As I ve watched my son s classmates grow up, I would have to say that all of them are well-behaved, well-rounded, and ready to make a positive contribution to society.

My 3 children love going to school at Pilgrim Lutheran (grades PK, 1 and 5 - this is our 7th year there). I am grateful to the principal, the teachers and other parents for their commitment to the students and to each other as a thriving community. My children are taught how to learn and to love to learn. The bonus at Pilgrim is that there is also an emphasis on being a caring and responsible part of the greater community.

My experiences of Pilgrim have been very positive. As a parent of children who have been in the lower and upper grades, I think the school s motto Academic Excellence with a Heart is definitely true. Pilgrim offers low class sizes, teachers who instill an attitude that learning is fun, a nurturing environment, and a strong emphasis on parent involvement. Students here are valued and encouraged for who they are at whatever level they are at. Parents have multiple opportunities to be involved in the school during the school day as well as evenings or on your own time. While there are no mandatory requirements, it will make an important impact on your children to know you are involved at least at some level. Pilgrim turns out graduates who have excelled not only academically but also as human beings.
