7th and 8th grade can be a stressful time for both parents and students as they make decisions regarding high school. Pilgrim helps examine each student’s unique abilities, needs, and preferences through meetings with teachers and the principal. Students are made aware of the enrollment criteria and the importance placed on 7th grade attendance records, report cards, and test scores.
Pilgrim prides itself on high test scores and a 95% acceptance of graduates into competitive high school programs. 75% of students who qualified were accepted at selective enrollment high schools, compared to a 17% acceptance average for such schools (Data provided by Selective Prep).
