Miss Peterson. She is an outstanding Jr. High teacher! Her lessons are challenging and educational. Throughout the year she has the kids do many projects and reports that cause the students get interactive with the subject. She also offers many field trips and cool art projects. The joke is that High School will be easy after Miss Peterson's class. I'm grateful she cares about their education and pushes them to go beyond what they thought they were capable of!
The students participate in different charity events throughout the year including Operation Christmas Child & "Change the World" where the kids bring in their change each week and when enough is collected it's sent to a underdeveloped country.
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!
