All three of my children have gone to Lighthouse Charter School and they will not go back this year. Every year that my children have attended this school they have promised that things will change and get better, but so far things are getting worse. Some of the children at this school are disrespectful and bullies. As far as the teachers go, I feel that they really don't care about the children. I've even overheard some of the teachers making fun of my 12-year-old (he has a learning disability). Really the only adult in this school that I have noticed that really cares is the principal.

I love the education that my children have recieved at ILCS. I wish that I could have kept them there.  The teachers do care about each child and their needs.  You must be a committed parent to your child and their education to remain at ILCS. If you don't, your right is to go to an IPS school. This is a privilege.

Indianapolis Lighthouse Charter school has gone down hill over the last 2 years and this will be the last year that my kids attend.

This school should be shut down. The staff is obviously working for a paycheck and could care less about a child's education or safety.
