My Daughter started part time Preschool (age 3) there this year. Her teacher is amazing!! My daughter wakes up thrilled to go to school and comes home excited to share everything she has learned that day. The office staff is friendly and very helpful. We have encountered a few glitches (part of being new to any system) and corrections have been made quickly and with smiles.

We have had a great experience with Pilgrim's early childcare program. My kids have been at Pilgrim for 3 years and they have been very happy. In the past few years I've seen my kids grow and develop so much. We've loved all of their teachers and the staff is very nurturing and caring. The new principal and pastor are at the door every morning, greeting the kids and parents. The environment is loving and nurturing and the kids learn through play. It feels like a big family. Pilgrim also allows for a lot of flexibility in the kids' schedules, ie: you can send them to school all day, half day, 2 days, 3 days, and they have before and after school care which is great for parents who need the flexibility. I couldn't be happier with the early childhood experience that my kids have had at Pilgrim.

The teachers are loving and great examples. The staff are friendly and willing to work with you. The church pastor is the spiritual leader for the school so the school is not only committed to giving the students a great education but also teaching them how to be a great person. The principal and pastor are both new and excited to see how the school can grow and strengthen. The educational program within the ECE definitely stands out compared to all in the surrounding area. The K-8 program is gifted and talented certified. Violin is taught to the 1st & 2nd graders as part of the curriculum. The teachers teach a great education rather than how to score well on a test, but still have great test scores on their Iowa Test. The smaller class sizes allow the students the attention they would get in a small town while living in a big city.

While all of the teachers and staff are great, the office manager does an amazing job at answering questions quickly either by phone, email, or in person, and she tends to know most of the answers herself. She knows almost all of the families, which includes all students 18mo-8th grade.

Amount of homework: Just right

Posted October 06, 2015

For some students it is too much and some not enough, but the average is just right. Homework is just one of those things which is harder to judge but necessary to do.

Develops grit: Agree

All of the teachers push the students to move ahead in their learning. The class sizes are small enough that even at the pre-k level the students can be pushed to go a step further in their learning, on an individual basis. The students are not pushed too hard, since not every student can be pushed as hard. And PE is something that is taught more than once a week in the K-8 grade programs so they can learn those characteristics in a physical way as well.

Develops respect: Strongly agree

The students are taught to follow all rules, which in turn teaches respect for all teachers and all other students.


Pilgrim Lutheran School
Develops empathy: Strongly agree

Most recently I received a note from a teacher saying the class was blessed with a new student and she has not seen another class of 4yo be so kind and supportive. The character development starts from the very start of the 18mo kids and continues to the 8th graders. And it shows as four-year-olds welcome a new student into their classroom.

Develops honesty: Strongly agree

The mission and vision statements of the school say it all but it also shows in the interaction of the teachers and staff with all of the students.
