My child has an IEP and the high school near us was a nightmare. Thank God we found this school. Class sizes are small and my child's IEP is followed how it should be. The teachers are more than helpful, the kids attending the school are well mannered and wonderful kids. It's more like a family than a school. Everyone is special and no one gets lost in the crowd wish we would have found it earlier.

Pilgrim is a very small k-12 school that features solid Christian teachers. The headmaster is exceptional and the discipline is thorough. I am five years out from graduation and truly appreciate the discipline this school has taught me.
