My 3 kids have been in the Preschool and the elementary school. I have nothing but the best things to say. The love and care and compassion my kids received was exceptional. The lessons that are taught really fill in the gaps from what we dont do at home. Classrooms are small so they got exceptional attention. And the teachers really care about them. It seemed that it was more than a job to the teachers, but a mission to really help my children. And to know that we got the best school possible for our kids, and it was the most affordable is a great relief.

Small classroom sizes and individual attention to students makes this school very special. For a small school they offer a wide variety of activities. It is school with a lot of parental involvement and support. The Lighthouse is a wonderful Christian school that teaches the children the importance of character while pursuing their academic goals.

Lighthouse Christian School is an excellent school for parents who want their children to receive a solid education with a Christian worldview. We love it. Our kids have had very small classes (5 to 15 students), and plenty of attention. It makes a big difference. They love school, love reading, math, and other subjects. Most of all, they love Jesus and are making friends with other wonderful kids. And you get all this at an extremely affordable price--especially considering we're in Santa Monica, where some private schools charge 4 to 5 times as much, for an education that is not as good as at the Lighthouse!

This is such a great school! It's a small school with wonderful teachers. The classes are small and the kids get personalized attention. Best of all, the teachers love the kids.

This little school produces great huge results! The classroom size is small, for all grades. The teachers actually teach, and the little ones are very bright! I love this school because the educators are not afraid to do their job, and to do it with a happy heart! Everyone shines here!

About these ratings

The Community Rating is the school’s average rating from its community members (e.g., parents, students, and school staff). The highest possible rating is five stars; the lowest is one star.

We currently do not have any test score information for this school. Unlike public schools, private schools are not always required to report data about their schools or not required to take the same tests as public schools. Many private schools take different standardized tests; however, that information is often made available only to families of enrolled students. We strive to acquire additional private school data whenever available.

Oops! We currently do not have any student information for this school. We rely on the state Department of Education, the National Center for Education Statistics (NCES), and in some cases school administrators such as registrars and principals for this data.

What makes a great teacher? Study after study shows the single most important factor determining the quality of the education a child receives is the quality of his teacher. Here are some characteristics to look for »
