Pilgrim School is a private school that teaches children to be kind and accept others for who they are. They make sure that kids grow up to be kind, respectful, and helpful people. They have science, art, music, library, and language classes. The languages you can choose from are Spanish and Chinese. For music, grades kindergarten to third grade, you sing songs and have fun music-related activities. For grades fourth and up, you can choose a musical instrument to learn. All the teachers are great, and there is a big soccer field that you play on for all the recesses. If you like, you can play on their soccer team. Also, on the last school day of the month, you get to wear whatever you want, but it has to be appropriate. There are many more fun events (Chinese Lunar New Year party, Winter Sing, Jogging Race), and you definitely should consider sending your kids to school here.

Pilgrim has been a wonderful place for our sons. They are excelling academically, enjoying the sports program as well as the extracurricular activities (such as ASB and engineering) and building strong friendships. The faculty, administrators and coaches all work to create a supportive environment that is both kind and firm. My children have wonderful mentors at Pilgrim - they are ethical young men, as well as scholars and athletes. Thank you, Pilgrim!

Hi I am an alumni of pilgrim school. I attended in 1976-1978. My second grade teacher was mrs grigsby and my third grade teacher was mrs Klein. I remember them very well. Although I attended for two years I must say they were the best times I had in elementary school. I would love to hear from my old classmates. Sincerely Scheherazade aresh
