Welcome to Lighthouse School in Spring Lake Park! We provide an enriched learning environment that matches the needs of self-directed, gifted and insatiable learners ages 6-18.
Lighthouse School provides an enriched environment for gifted and insatiable learners ages 6-18.
Lighthouse students are self-directed, insatiable learners with curious minds, who are driven to make meaning of their world.
Because Lighthouse School is designed differently than similar schools, the “typical” day is often different for each student.
Lighthouse School partners with Spring Lake Park High School to offer students a variety of honors, Advanced Placement and college readiness courses.
Learning at Lighthouse School is inquiry-based and self-directed under the guidance of our nurturing staff, who provide high expectations, choice and challenge.
Each student at Lighthouse School is known by name, strength, interest and need, leading to personalized student work and learning experiences.
Amazing things are happening every day at Lighthouse School – learn more about our Lighthouse stories and voices.
Special Education teacher, Lighthouse and SLPHS
As a special education teacher, I feel I get the opportunity to know students and their families very well. I get to work with most students one-on-one and really get to personalize their learning.
The opportunity for the kids to go take high school classes and that flexibility to move back and forth between the high school and Lighthouse is pretty special.
Lead Teacher, Lighthouse
Advisors and teacher facilitators here, we’re not direct instructing, we are facilitators of learning and we’re really trying to highlight the things they’re good at.
The teachers here know how to inspire us to be curious.
Lighthouse is about meeting their needs, which happens to be very different than other kids.
