Parent Testimonial

My daughter’s life changed the day she was accepted as a Lighthouse School student.  She attended a different school through grade two.  During that time I watched a fun-loving, energetic, confident little girl become withdrawn.  I knew an educational change was imperative and the Lighthouse School was the school for her.

 

As a parent, I wanted my child to be in an environment where she felt loved and nurtured.  I wanted her to love going to school, excited to see what each new day would bring.  I wanted her to grow up confident, knowing she was truly special and that the effects of being a positive role model to those around her and within the community would hold a lasting impression.  Being able to learn in a non-traditional environment that nurtured the whole child was an amazing experience for both of us. The Lighthouse School provided all that and much, much more.

 

I watched the twinkle in my daughter’s eye return in no time.  Her teachers loved her as much as I did.  They knew her inside and out.  Her teachers challenged and nurtured her.  She was able to be the child that loved to learn, at a pace that made her confident and successful.

 

The little girl that entered the Lighthouse School in 3rd grade is now a senior in high school.  The education she received at the Lighthouse School prepared her well for the transition into public school. She has consistently been on the honor roll, participates in varsity sports, is a National Honor Society member, a peer mentor, and most importantly, a confident, fun-loving, conscientious, hard working student and daughter. The Lighthouse School nurtured the seed that has grown into a beautiful young woman.

Words from Our Alumni

During my years at Lighthouse School I learned so much more than just memorizing facts. That's what separates it from other schools, I learned how to be myself, in the best learning environment there is. Lighthouse School has given me an extraordinary foundation that I will carry with me wherever I go.

The Nantucket Lighthouse School is a great environment in which to learn and develop. I wouldn’t nearly be the same person I am today if it weren’t for the Lighthouse School.

I adored Lighthouse School so much that I remember being on the verge of tears at the prospect of each summer vacation.

From Our Alumni

I remember starting sixth grade after graduating from Lighthouse three months earlier. Having never gone to school anywhere else, I had numerous and mixed feelings about my place in these new surroundings. Out of all these emotions there was only one thing that made me nervous. I was afraid that I would be behind academically.

The approach to teaching each child as an individual, was one of the deciding factors in our choosing the Lighthouse School. Just walking into the classrooms, I immediately “got it.” I knew this was not only a perfect fit for my child but also for my family.
