    Featured Review: Works Here says Since when did these things happen at school?! Never did in my past!1. I witnessed freshmen hugging and crying with seniors over graduation2. I witnessed seniors coming back to school the week after their last class just because they want to be here.3. I saw at least 10 different students volunteering to clean bathrooms and do yard work for free! Just because they want to help.4. No student actually uses their locker. Theft is basically a non-issue here.5. When final bell rang I walked out to give high fives and say "congratulations!" And they look at me and nearly start crying because they don't want to leave for the summer.Lighthouse Christian School is truly a special school. High quality education, God-centered, diversity, and affordability. Best kept secret in Nashville friends. Holler at me and come check it out..
