About Us


Welcome to FAIR School Pilgrim Lane, where students develop their strengths both academically and artistically, amplify their voice and learn to make a positive difference in the world. In the fall 2022 we will offer K-5 instruction, and FAIR School-Crystal continues with grades 6-8.

FAIR-Pilgrim Lane integrates the arts through every classroom. Creativity is at the heart of all we do, with curriculum that allows our students to stretch and explore their understanding of the world through a variety of artistic media.

We explore students’ artistic appreciation and expression through the following ways, teaching the students how to: create, communicate, respond and make connections with their learning. The result? Academic excellence!

We are proud to partner with the Stages Theatre Company. We provide specialist instruction in music and media, along with orchestra and band. Visual art is a highlight at FAIR-Pilgrim Lane, with roughly double the number of classes as in other elementary schools. We have a physical education specialist, too.

Study of and through the arts means exposure to many different creative styles and cultural traditions. Students see themselves reflected in their studies, and we encourage everyone to Be Respectful, Be Responsible, and Be a Leader.

Students in classroom learning
