My son has done amazing the last 2 years being at Lighthouse. There is an adjustment period to the Montessori approach. However, it is well worth it! Every child would want to learn like this and be in a school environment that feels like family with amazing educational opportunities that traditional schools do not offer. They foster kindness, community involvement (w/monthly field trips), and adjust the teaching to fit what the child needs. I have recommended this school to other families and their children are thriving as well. No bullying, small classrooms, individual attention, and teaching of Christian values which is role modeled by all the staff. They also give scholarships to those that could otherwise not afford to the cost of tuition. During COVID, they did not close. Our son learned everything he needed to for the year, and they went above and beyond to keep the children safe. My son wants to stay until he graduates.
