    "My daughter has attended for nearly 2 years. We are very happy with the quality of teachers and staff. We came from private, which I thought was the 'way to go'. Now that we have been at this school, you couldn't pay ME to go to private. This school has it all. The aftercare is the BEST! Pickup is awful, but you can park and walk your self in and get your child that way. I park and walk my daughter in each morning..no problem at all. She is in gifted, and I really think it's not much different than the rest of the classes. They never 'tell' the kids 'you are 'better'...as I have heard some schools do. School has counselor on staff. Also has all the 'extras'..art, computers, PE and music. Why pay?? Sure they need a donation here and there..but who cares! Small fraction of why you'd pay at private..trust me I know!"

    "Jupiter Lighthouse. I would caution each parent and school faculty member to get informed about Common Core initiative, which this school participates in. This is government sponsored initiative that will only hinder our children's ability to learn. Please research it."

    "Our children attended Lighthouse Elementary for three years. The affluent parent body insists their children attend the gifted program, which acts as a smaller school within a school. Not a true gifted program, the student body here is comprised of children who have had the benefit of a rigorous preschool experience and come in with first grade level skills, so it is basically a year ahead of the average curriculum. The gifted program teachers are also much stronger than the others, so you definitely want your children here. The pickup and drop off procedures are a nightmare and be warned that parents start lining up in running cars for an hour before dismissal. Parking is scarce and rainy days can severely impact your morning and afternoon."

    "Just attended the "Curriculum Night" and all the K teacher did was complain about the curriculum and how it was too hard for her to follow. She is extremely negative toward the children and I heard her saying to another parent that she would like to "tweak" my son. As in physically harm him. And not because he was rude or hurtful, but because he tried to ring a bell in her class. The poor guy is bored to tears because all his teacher does is complain all day. I'd try to ring a bell too! It is sickening to send my young child into this martyr's class every day. I wouldn't wish it on anyone. Do not move to this district for this school. I completely agree with teh parent who said, "The atmosphere created at this school is not a celebration of childhood, but instead a soul-crushing end to creativity and spontaneity.""

    "My daughter was very unhappy here. There is an overall extremely strict feeling to the school and kids can't just be themselves. The lunch room ladies are burned out and unhelpful to the kids. The PE coach is scary. It is a cold environment, and not nurturing. It is like each kid is being controlled. When a child walks in the hall he must do "lighthouse bubbles," which is filling your mouth and cheeks with air so you can't speak. The kids walk single file through the hallway like this. The atmosphere created at this school is not a celebration of childhood, but instead a soul-crushing end to creativity and spontaneity. Also the hallways are kind of dark and poorly lit. And parents with younger children are not allowed to be a part of the school community."
