Pilgrim is a nurturing community devoted to educating every child. The small classes (one class of 18-20 per grade) allows for personalized attention. A rigorous academic program that never feels rigorous because of the supportive teachers.
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
