I'm giving this school 3 stars due to some concerns I have seen with the way the school is run. My kids have been attending Pilgrim for the last two years, (since it re-opened in the 2012-13 school year). The academics are amazing..challenging and puts the kids (in my opinion) ahead of the pack, so to speak. My younger child struggled, however, with the rigorous demands that are placed on kids at such a young age (4yrs). The school seems to operate on it's own rules and if your kid isn't going to behave perfectly (what 4 yr old does??), the school will threaten to suspend him/her at their choosing, instead of working with the child. I realize that this is a private school, but I would hesitate to recommend this school to other parents of young children, as the school doesn't tolerate any kind of deviance from their strict rules and times treated my child in a matter I felt was rude. In addition, the principal threated to suspend my 4 yr old for a small infraction due to the fact they found it as an "inconvenience". This school has the potential to be amazing, but think twice if your child isn't perfect, because they will not be accepting of him/her.

I beleive that if the principal is going to continue to oversee a school in which a diverse group of children attend, I believe that a course in ethics and diversity is needed. On a scale of 1 to 5, I would rate this school as a 3.

My child went to and graduated from Pilgrim Lutheran School. When he started there, in 6th grade, he was welcomed by both students and teachers. In addition to a good Christian education he also developed some life-long friendships. He is now 20 years old and I believe that the Christian atmosphere at Pilgrim along with the top-notch academics made him the great young man he has grown to be. I have stayed involved, on a voluntary basis, at the school and have seen many improvement over the past three years. They have many new teachers who, along with the wonderful 'experienced' teachers provide student with a quality, Christian, education. Pilgrim is a small school that caters to the needs of every race and religious denomonation. It truly is a Christian school.

About these ratings

The Community Rating is the school’s average rating from its community members (e.g., parents, students, and school staff). The highest possible rating is five stars; the lowest is one star.

We currently do not have any test score information for this school. Unlike public schools, private schools are not always required to report data about their schools or not required to take the same tests as public schools. Many private schools take different standardized tests; however, that information is often made available only to families of enrolled students. We strive to acquire additional private school data whenever available.

Oops! We currently do not have any student information for this school. We rely on the state Department of Education, the National Center for Education Statistics (NCES), and in some cases school administrators such as registrars and principals for this data.
