    "Lighthouse is a K-8 charter school in Oakland with a sister 9-12 charter school located on site. I am most impressed with the high standards for teaching, the emphasis on critical thinking and problem solving, and the dedication to helping every student succeed. I have two children at Lighthouse. One is a flexible, enthusiastic learner and one struggles with a mood disorder which interferes with his ability to participate positively in a school environment. I have been so thankful for the commitment from teachers and leadership to help ensure that BOTH my sons' needs are met. Lighthouse NEVER gives up on a child but believes that kids do well if they can and we need to figure out what they need in order to make good choices in and out of the classroom. I am so thankful that my children can be part of such a strong and inclusive community."

    "My child has been at Lighthouse since kindergarten and is now in 7th grade. For our family, it has been a great fit and an extremely positive experience. Lighthouse holds students to high academic expectations and has a rigorous curriculum that is interesting to students. The transition from elementary to middle school, often traumatic, was seamless and easy because of the way LCCS is structured. The teachers "loop" with their students, so students have their teacher(s) for two years, which allows teachers to really know them and their needs. It is impossible to fall through the cracks in middle school because of small class sizes and daily check-ins with crew leaders. I have confidence that my child's needs (academic, social, emotional) are being met by adults who care."

    "I am a parent of a 7th grader who has attended Lighthouse since kindergarten. The school has been a great fit for our child - challenging and educating her in countless ways. We have been involved in many extracurricular activities and have become very close to the teachers and support staff of the school. I have always enjoyed working with other parents and the staff to create an atmosphere of cooperation and community. These projects range from a volunteer group that built the school's playground to building the book returns for the library to helping with the new creativity lab. Lighthouse's focus on community building and parent involvement makes it a place that all of us - students, staff and parents are really proud of. I think this is a model school and an outstanding place for my child to receive an education."

    "I am a teacher at Lighthouse. I can't imagine teaching and learning in any other school environment. The school is a community of learners very focused on the mission of the school. As a teacher and learner, I appreciate the highly collaborative school design which allows for collaboration with my peers. I also appreciate the culture of the school--it really feels like a community. An area of growth for us is to continue to figure out how to provide more services to our students who have struggling experiences with reading, math, and character."

    "Lighthouse has a friendly community. Teachers are available to help their students and there are many programs after school that offer help and support, as well. The principal has great communication with all the students and tries to get to know them so he can help them with their special needs. This school is a college ready school so in other words, students are ready for college and all the obstacles included once they graduate from Lighthouse."
