Pilgrim School is not like other pretentious Los Angeles private schools. As a recent alumni of Pilgrim, I can confidently say that Pilgrim helped me love what I was learning and helped me love learning in general. With teachers and administrators who treated students with a sense of equity and respect, school felt less like a job and more a community that works symbiotically. With an amazing STEM program, especially engineering, Pilgrim school helped me thrive and formulate and idea what I would like to major in during college. Cafeteria food is not good but thats about the biggest negative!

We have three kids at Pilgrim; a kindergartener, 5th and 7th grader. The community is warming and loving, and has definitely embraced our family since joining in 2015. The science projects, essay topics and language skills the kids come home with are fantastic, and there's a team of teachers and administrators who want to make sure each kids is thriving. So glad the field is done and we have parking - it's fantastic! Although founded by and associated with the First Congregational Church, bi-monthly chapels are focused on inclusion, values and helping kids navigate the ups and downs of daily life.
Pilgrim is a very special place. Our children have been there for 7 years (middle school and high school) and Pilgrim has helped them grow into amazing students and human beings. The school is safe, ethical, academically-rigorous, thoughtful about pedagogy and fun. A kindness permeates the Pilgrim culture. The mixed-grade environment really helps the secondary students keep a reality check on teenage drama. Very supportive environment!
