I have been at Lighthouse for 13 years, because of course its a kinder through twelfth-grade school. I knew all the people and felt comfortable and welcomed there because I have made many friends along the way. I was basically raised in this school I was thought most of my manners on how to present myself in a professional area. I am not saying my mother didn't teach me any manners, Lighthouse was there to keep me on check. Lighthouse also helps there students success and strive for the dreams the students desire for a career in the future, they prepare us for college from the start of middle school. And I am really glad they did because there are people in my college class who don't know much skills on how to succeed through college. In conclusion, I am really glad that I went to Lighthouse Charter from K-12th.

I've been at Lighthouse Charter for two years now. It's a decent school, but it definitely has some flaws. The staff members are kind and work to make you feel safe, however there are very limited options when it comes to academics. There are very little advanced classes compared to larger public schools. It's a good school overall.
The school seems to always change some policy that singles out students to fail. One year photography is considered art then conflicting stories leave students scrambling to meet their credits for graduation. They say take classes during summer only to find out the class taken will not be counted. Lighthouse is not the great school people in Oakland government think they are. Their policies are always conflicting with the administration and it seems no one is ever on the same page. There has been confusion about policy and it seems to change from one student to the next.
