Opportunities through SLPHS

Class of 2022 graduate
I'm #SLPPantherProud because since enrolling in the district, I've been helped and encouraged to reach my full potential and pursue whatever interested me.
At Lighthouse and across the district, we have a tremendous staff who work hard with care and compassion each day to truly know each student and create the conditions for each student to learn.
A lot of the instruction and a lot of the subject area is given individually which is great for our students.
Lighthouse is a place that redefined what public school and learning looked like to us as parents; a place for students with unique qualities and challenges can come to grow and learn and decide who they want to be in this world.
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.
