    "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."

    "I have two children that go to this school. It is such a wonderful school! The office staff is ALWAYS helpful and kind. If I ever have any questions, the office staff is there to help. The Principal is the sweetest person to talk with and very caring about each and every student. The PTO always makes you feel welcomed and needed. I have had such a great and positive experience at Lighthouse Elementary. It shows in my children!!"

    "We moved to Abacoa because of the schools, but it has not been what we expected. The teacher has been great, but the office staff, principal, and PE coach are cold, rude, and mean. It is not the environment I wanted for our son. First, the office staff will never be kind, joyful, or inviting (this includes the nurse!) That can be very intimidating for a young kid. The principal does not like to rock the boat, so you will not get much support in change. The principal will not allow siblings on campus or to any school functions. This is not a county wide policy!! This is her policy. It makes it very difficult to provide family support to your young ones. It will break your heart the first time your child looks at you with a sad face because you can not attend an event because of a sibling. ALL the children are afraid of the PE coach. He yells a lot. I have been told that the change in principal is the reason for the overall change in the school. The reason I rated this low on parent involvement is because they do not encourage ALL parents to volunteer. Parents are treated like outsiders by the office staff."
