My daughter at Pilgrim Lutheran School located off 6th and Center. I am very pleased with the education she is receiving as well as the warm, welcoming environment the staff creates. I can always pop in and ask questions with no hesitation. The newsletter which is sent home weekly also helps me stay up to date. This is my daughter's 3rd year there and I love it!

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!
