Alumni Student Testimonial

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.

I didn’t feel like I had learned the math and the grammar, history, science, etc. that everyone else was learning at my age. All I remembered was writing stories in my journal, drawing, knitting, building with Legos, being in plays, reading, going on field trips etc. What I was surprised to find in my first few weeks of sixth grade was that I was not behind at all. Somewhere within what I remembered doing at Lighthouse, I had learned all those things one assumes an eleven-year-old would know. This is a real testament to the way in which this school encourages its students to learn, and I know that I am better for having been there.

“I have had some of the best teachers I will ever have at the Lighthouse School- every single one of them. I am truly grateful for having my experience at the Lighthouse School for as long as I did. My only regret being that I didn’t start there sooner.”

“My teachers became my second parents, my classmates became my brothers and sisters. No matter what we all went through, I knew I had a family who loved me, and I will never forget that.”

Alumni 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  During that time I watched a fun-loving, energetic, confident little girl become withdrawn.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.
