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
