School Reviews

We are at the Pilgrim Campus of the Concordia University School, and we love it there. Our experience so far has been wonderful. The teachers know and love our children - they are in K5 and 2nd grade this year. All the staff and teachers work so hard to teach our children and care for them. We would definitely recommend this school for families in Milwaukee looking for an excellent education choice!

My 3 children are new to Concordia this year and I thought it would be a hard transition for them but thanks to the amazing teachers and gracious principal it has been easy for them....my children expressed dislike at 1st due to a military precision but I explained that teaches you discipline and gives you structure.... I love this school with its open door policy and the ability to be able to visit my children at my leisure... They provide a multitude of extra curricular activities and are always so friendly and willing to help when I stop by....I''m grateful that I made the switch!

I love the attention and care provided by all staff at the school. The curriculum is challenging and the principal and all other staff know each child by name from K4-8th grade. Great school!

My daughter is in K4 after completing K3 at an MPS school. I have been very satisfied thus far. She is learning, being challenged and enjoying it all at once. At the prior school, she essentially was retaught the information she knew, but at Concordia the teachers are in tune to what level students are on. The classrooms are small compared to other schools I looked at. The principal and teachers are also caring. The principal is there early for questions and teachers, at least the K4 teachers, but it seems like all are very experienced and caring. They were still helpful and responsive even when I had a concern.
