LCS is a great school! My daughter went there since Kindergarten, graduated there and now is in college. My son also went there from kindergarten and when he graduates will go on to college. The monitors are great and have helped my children grow academically as well as spiritually. I fully believe in Christian schools because your child can grow spiritually while they are growing academically.

One year later, and my child is still having both academic and psychologic difficulties stemming from experiences of bullying at Lighthouse Christian School. My child actually regressed academically and socially while in attendance there. We have had to begin counseling and extensive academic testing to get my child back on track. As a parent, I would not recommend this school to anyone. Even though I placed many requests to meet with the principal (in an effort to resolve the problems), he never met with me, or communicated in any way regarding the ongoing problems. My child was exposed to far worse bullying than would be allowed in public school; also, there was a huge lack of adult supervision. The year my child attended there was a complete waste of time as far as education, as well as, money. There was not even a resemblance of Christianity, much less, an atmosphere of learning.

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.
