Lighthouse School
Teacher effectiveness: Very ineffective

I have mostly witnessed staff watching over the students, where are the teachers? The IEP my child is on has been copied almost word for word from the previous year with a few minor changes.

Amount of homework: Not enough

lame, not challenging. They give the kids worksheets all the time, My daughter would come home and tell me that they watched movies and played games all day. When I would ask her about learning she could not come up with anything.

The students that I have observed did not have to earn anything. They are handed tokens without any structured time or reason.

My child complains about them hurting her during a restraint or that she can not breath, They deny it and say it never happened.

If your child has a complaint or concern the school will never address it. They lie.

The staff at this school put my 8 year old in a restraint and bruised her. Then they lied about it. She continues to have Anxiety about this school. They also make them play in a field at recess that is covered with geese poop. The family worker only bothers to visit when there is a meeting coming up, other than that I don't hear anything! Looking for another school When I visited the school the children were just sitting in the classroom doing nothing No work. no instruction, no reading just sitting there.

I have worked at Lighthouse for over 8 years and continue to be impressed by the level of committment the program makes to it's staff and to every student. Truly a remarkable place to work.

My son has attended Lighthouse School for three years now. It is an excellent school with a very caring staff. They have done an outstanding job evaluating what he needs both socially and academically, and implementing a program to meet his needs. He has grown leaps and bounds during his time at Lighthouse. We are grateful for all they have done for him.
