My daughter attended Imagination Station for Pre-K 4. The teachers and staff are truly compassionate and very attentive. This really helped my daughter's transition from never having attended any prior school, as she previously stayed at home with family, very smooth and easy. She felt comfortable and was always excited to go to school everyday from 8-2:30. The children receive personal attention and the staff goes above and beyond what is expected to make their learning experience fun, exciting and safe. We were so happy with the results that we decided to continue on to Lighthouse Christian School. I would recommend checking it out!!! Thank you to all!!! The Palmer family, Pompano Beach Fl.

Not only are the teachers and staff always warm and welcoming, but our school excels in all levels of academics. Our school just opened a resource room, called the 'Navigator's Room' to assist students who need more individualized attention. The room is run by a teacher with a masters in Exceptional Student Education. It is filled with furniture used to help students focus and stay on task, in addition to hands on learning activities, sensory stimulants and all in one desktops loaded with brain training programs. The room has an environment, and resources that enable children to be the best students they can be! It also gives classroom teachers the freedom to challenge the other students in their class while the 'Navigators' are getting the attention they need. You can feel the love and commitment as you walk the halls of our school and watch the teachers work with the students.

Excellent school with the most caring teachers that we have experienced. We have traveled the country over the years and experienced many schools in many cities and by far this is the finest institution we have run into. Thank You LCS for making us feel at home.

My children have been at LCS for 3 years now. I can say that this schools offers a loving environment, small class sizes, a fantastic education and the finest teachers and administration in Broward county. The tuition is significantly less than other schools which tout education but do not deliver. I parent could'nt ask for more.

As a school board member I have been asked by other school administrators and school board officials how our enrollment continues to grow. The simple truth is the staff. The teachers are loving and the adminitration responsive. The families are all close devote much of their time at the school. This is a great environment for family oriented people.

This is my families 4th and fantastic year at LCS. From the teachers to the education to the building to the community, LCS has been a blessing for my family. Not only do our children build life long quality relationships but so do the parents. Both of my children are excelling in academics, have made the greatest friends and are so happy to go to school. LCS has become our extended family : ) Thank you LCS!

My child started at Imagination Station Pre-School at age three. When it was time to think about Kindergarten we looked at all of the big schools from Fort Lauderdale to Boca Raton I have to say that we have never regretted our decision to keep our child in the Schools of the Pink Church and are so happy with Lighthouse Christian School. You will be very hard pressed to find a school that compares to the level of caring, dedication and attention to curriculum that is felt from both the teachers and administration. I encourage you to go to the school website and examine the years and level of experience packed into this great little school.

I've been part of the LCS family for six years and have four children in grades K-5. Three areas that have made this the school for us are: First, our children vary in their academic abilities, LCS has helped each to attain their personal best. They manage to push the gifted while helping the child who needs extra assistance. Second, I would describe the teaching staff as exceptional, loving, cheerful, caring, dedicated, and team oriented. Finaly, I believe as a group, we have the finest group of parents one could hope for, as they are involved in both their children's lives and the school's. I've witnessed countless acts of selfless dedication and truly enjoy their company. This is particularly true this year as we seem to be enjoying a double dose of positive energy and attitude. Thanks to our Lord Jesus Chirst and Go Mariners!

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.
