In celebration of its 56th anniversary, the faculty and administration at Pilgrim School are offering new classes and programs that are on the cutting edge of art and technology. Students will learn computer science and engineering, and kindergartners will study Mandarin Chinese and woodworking.
Pilgrim School’s goal is to develop well-rounded individuals and innovative thinkers, which is reflected in the wide range of colleges and universities to which students are accepted, such as Williams College, Art Center College of Design, Columbia University, and the University of California, Berkeley. Teaching students to incorporate creativity into every aspect of their lives is an important element of the school’s approach.
Pilgrim School’s unique “Visiting Artists and Writers” program introduces all students to working professionals who share their work and their creative process. The school also offers a wide range of “no-cut” athletics.
In January, every Pilgrim student and faculty member will be involved in “STEAM Week”, in which the school community will focus on identifying, analyzing and working to address challenging problems using science, technology, engineering, art and mathematics, addressing problems such as global, regional and local hunger and water shortages. The program will culminate in STEAM night, where sleceted groups will give “TED-type” presentations.
Pilgrim School, a division of First Congregational Church of Los Angeles, is a located at 540 S. Commonwealth Ave. For information, call (213)355-5204, or visit www.pilgrim-school.org.
