10 Parent Reviews for Gary Lighthouse Charter School

Gary Lighthouse College Prep, Graduating 100% of the senior class with 100% accepted to colleges is fantastic. Principal Hart and her staff deserve the lion's share of the credit. This is a great school.

I wasn't impressed with the Gary Lighouse School. The first year it was opened, I felt like my daughther was being taught. The second year they changed principals and everything went down hill.

I think the Gary Lighthouse charter school is a great school to have your child enrolled in. The teachers really care about the children and try to make sure that every child 'gets it'. My son is not the fastest learner, but his teacher took time out of her schedule to tutor him after school to make ...  Read more
