    "2007 to 2013 the principal, Dave Glienke was not approachable. He was not a caring man and apparently he had a unique way to believe juggling teachers around is great for the school. Not for the students and not for stability. Plus was not willing to hear how the first year teachers were being mouthy with the parents and also to the children. Sorry we don't need to pay for that !"

    "I have two children at Pilgrim and we love this school All the teachers are wonderful - very involved with the kids. The academics are strong. The class room sizes are small so everyone receives a lot of attention. In addition, the parents are encouraged to participate and be involved at the school."

    "I have two kids at Pilgrim and 8 years between them at the school. I live in the Meyerland area where the public schools have strong magnet programs. Still, I chose Pilgrim for the following reasons: K-8 REVIEW 1. Strong academics. Their English grammar and phonics program are particularly good. Spanish, music, and computers start in 1st grade. Love how there are lots of field trips. 2. Small class sizes - The teachers work individually with each student. It's not just about "classroom management" 3. Low bureaucracy - all the staff are very approachable. When I have a concern, I can go directly to the teacher or principal. You won't find that open access in most public schools and even some private schools. 4. Strong, Christian education - the Lutheran faith provides a solid foundation. Of course, people of other denominations and faiths are welcome. 18 MONTHS - PK REVIEW This the best, most affordable, and flexible childcare option in Southwest Houston, hands down. The little kids benefit from a lot of the school activities (Chapel, assemblies, etc.) early in life. It gets them excited about school. Teachers are warm and attentive. My daughter was already reading in PK."

    "I could not be happier with the education of my 2 children at Pilgrim Lutheran School. They both started with Early Childhood Ed. at two. My son graduated & is now a Junior at Strake Jesuit, a very competitive college preparatory school. His Iowa test scores at Pilgrim were exceptional as were others in his class. He was well prepared academically, spiritually & emotionally. His fall PSAT-NMQT scores were in the top 13 scores in his class (210+) & could make him a candidate as a National Merit Scholar Semi-Finalist next year. My daughter is in the 8th grade and her Iowa test scores are equal if not better to my son s. The staff has a great deal of responsibility for my children s success by passionately promoting a loving, Christian & disciplined environment. Overall results of the staff have consistently made Pilgrim students scores one to two grades higher than the Iowa test of basic skills grade equivalency. The music program is strong & participation is encouraged. Spanish is taught early. The athletics programs have given my kids a team ethic as well as physical development & are well supported. This is the best investment I have made for my money. Bob Heilman, PLS parent"

    "Pilgrim is especially good for math and grammar. They have an absolutely fantastic robotics program. Teachers use traditional textbooks and teach skills that the public schools have abandoned (like adding without a calculator). The school has a kind and caring environment. The principal, teachers, and staff are easy to work with and responsive to parent concerns."
