About This School
Charter schools are public schools, but differ from traditional public schools in that they are independent and are operated by educators, parents, community leaders, educational entrepreneurs, or others. Funding for charter schools is based on designated local or state educational organizations. Those organizations are responsible for monitoring and assessing the quality and effectiveness of education, but permit the schools to operate outside of the traditional public school education system. See Potomac Lighthouse Pcs's test results to learn more about school performance.
In 2011, Potomac Lighthouse Pcs had 20 students for every full-time equivalent teacher. The District Of Columbia average is 12 students per full-time equivalent teacher.

Potomac Lighthouse Pcs Reviews
Potomac Lighthouse is a charter school that started off with a good vision, and then lost sight of what is really important: the love of learning for students. Leadership has been inconsistent at best, going through multiple principals per year, and the school does not treat its teachers well, allowing them opportunities for professional growth or improvement. I would highly reconsider before sending my child to this school. There are many dangerous occurrences that happen at the school and they are not handled with a zero-tolerance policy.
