As a student who goes to this school i must say that like said in another review slowly falling apart, this school is great to getting into good colleges, but a couple of my old peers have told me that they had learned more in a month in a public school than in a year at Pilgrim, why they have such high credentials is beyond my knowledge. Pilgrim claims to be a Christian School, but yet the principal is not. Like said in another review this schools staff tends to pick favorites and discriminate against personality, following false accusations. Although Pilgrim does supply a large amount of high quality technology that helps "learn". But with this technology they choose to invade privacy i.e. pictures social networking ims, there motto is that big brother is watching.You should take the time to think if your $20,000 tuition is worth going to Pilgrim, you can either really like it or really dislike it.

Hi, i am an alumni from Pilgrim School and the past school year my neice attended. When i went to pilgrim, the school was friendly, curriculum was challenging, athletics & performing arts programs were up to par, and i graduated and went to Berkley. Recently, I see the school slowly dying, there are very strict & unnecessary rules & standards, the teachers take the personal aspect to teacher student relationships to a whole new level. By this i mean they invade students privacy, in a way that i don't find appropriate at all, I have heard rumors about inappropriate (sex-related) relationship between students and teacher. During my years at Pilgrim, this sort of chaos wasn't imaginable for such a school. As far as the staff on a professional level, they pick favorites & tend to lean towards them. When i was at Pilgrim, I loved the dance programs and I was enthused about dance classes. Learning hip-hop, jazz, ballet, technique, everything. But recently the school hired a convenient choice as a dance teacher, this teacher only instructs hip hop dance, which makes the dance program dull & boring at times. I am not at all bad-mouthing the school because I loved the school but seeing what my niece has gotten into this past year, having survived up until the last day, she chooses not to enter high school which such disadvantages. I encourage all parents to compare and contrast schools. And the way I see it, Pilgrim is in slow decline.

Pilgrim School is a (non-denominational) division of the First Congregational Church of Los Angeles. The church and school buildings are architecturally stunning, massive granite structures that blend in nicely with the downtown urban setting. The school has an old-fashioned feel to it with sash windows, varnished oak doors and molding, and black and white checkerboard tile floors. This is a traditional academic school with a rigorous curriculum. A staggering 100% of Pilgrim School graduates go on to higher education, many finding success at Stanford, UC Berkeley, UCLA, USC, Vassar, Columbia, Yale, West Point, Georgetown University, and the Claremont Colleges. The people I met during my many visits (educators, administrators, parents, and church officials) have a great deal of love, dedication, and support for the school.
