My child is a student at Pilgrim Lutheran School and she absolutely loves it! I switched her from an MPS school due to the increasingly aggressive environment. I wanted her to begin a path in a faith-based curriculum so she could be prepared for entry into High School at either Milwaukee Lutheran or Wisconsin Lutheran High School. As a parent, I love Pilgrim Lutheran School because of the amazing staff. Everyone pitches in to help out and it truly is a family environment with faith at the helm of each day's journey coupled with a strong emphasis on learning, not just teaching, Math, Reading and all subjects applicable to elementary school.
This is my Childrens first time being at this Pilgrim Lutheran and they love it. The teachers there are excellent and do an excellent job at working with parents to make sure the students are successful scholars. They also are very helpful in making sure they provide the extra help needed for the students.
Tamarack Waldorf School is a blessing for our family. My children have never been happier, since we found this gem on the East Side of Milwaukee. Each day as my kids come home from school they are calm and happy and seeming so "complete" from their experiences at school. The Tamarack community is wonderful and the teachers (and administrative employees) are just excellent! What a wonderful school with a wonderful method of teaching children. They let children be children, and at the same time be confident and smart and true to themselves. Hurray for Tamarack Waldorf School!
My son attended Tamarack from pre-K through 8th grade and has had grade points in the 3.7 range in all three years of public high school so far, and my daughter is about to graduate 8th grade after attending Tamarack the same amount of time. I love the school, the inspired teaching, the whole Waldorf approach, and the wonderful parent community!
